Rob Regier Memorial Golf Tournament Sept. 17 to support K-State cancer research
MANHATTAN — Golfers are invited to help Kansas State University fight cancer at the 23rd annual Rob Regier Memorial Golf Tournament Friday, Sept. 17. Proceeds will support the university's Johnson Cancer Research Center.
The tournament honors Rob Regier, a 1988 K-State graduate in pre-dentistry who died of cancer at age 26. It is hosted by his mother, Sandy Regier, and his brother and sister-in-law, Randy and Juli Regier, all of Overland Park. The Regier family has raised more than $383,400 for K-State cancer research and education.
The four-person scramble will be at Colbert Hills Golf Course in Manhattan, with registration opening at 11 a.m. and a shotgun start at 1 p.m. A steak dinner and prize disbursements will immediately follow at Colbert's restaurant. Prizes will be awarded to top teams, hole-contest winners and more.
The tournament is scheduled for the Friday before K-State football hosts Nevada so that out-of-town guests can enjoy both while in Manhattan. Special-rate hotel rooms are being held for tournament guests until Sept. 2.
Tournament registration and payment are requested by Sept. 3. Late and same-day registration will be accepted, but advance registration is strongly encouraged for planning and event flow purposes. The fee of $150 includes dinner, half of a cart rental and a souvenir item. Mulligans will be sold at two for $20.
Tournament sponsorships are available and all sponsors receive special recognition.
Information about participating as a player or sponsor is available at cancer.k-state.edu/newsevents/regier.html and by emailing or calling the Johnson Cancer Research Center at firstname.lastname@example.org or 785-532-6705.
The Johnson Cancer Research Center, in the College of Arts and Sciences, supports and advances cancer research and education at Kansas State University. Its programs are made possible by private donations.
