Regier golf tournament for Kansas State University cancer research Oct. 16

Wednesday, Aug. 19, 2015 

MANHATTAN — Don't just be tee'd off at cancer — tee up to fight it.

Golfers can help Kansas State University fight cancer at the 18th annual Rob Regier Memorial Golf Tournament Friday, Oct. 16. Proceeds will support the university's Johnson Cancer Research Center.

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. Dinner and prize disbursements will take place in Colbert's restaurant immediately following the tournament.

Preregistration is requested by Friday, Sept. 19, but late and same-day registration will be accepted.

The tournament honors Rob Regier, a 1988 graduate of Kansas State University in pre-dentistry who died of cancer at age 26. It is hosted by his parents, Sandy and Les Regier, and his brother and sister-in-law, Randy and Juli Regier, all of Overland Park.

The registration fee of $150 includes dinner and a souvenir item, and the tax-deductible portion is $42. Prizes will be awarded to top teams, hole contest winners and more.

The tournament's premier sponsor is Grand Mère Development, Manhattan. Additional sponsors are welcome, and all sponsors receive special recognition.

More information about participating as a player or sponsor is available at cancer.k-state.edu or by calling the cancer research center at 785-532-6705.

The Johnson Cancer Research Center supports Kansas State University's cancer research and education, as well as public outreach. Its programs are made possible by private donations.
