The Cure Cancer Regatta for the Tom Collier Memorial Trophy


NOR   SI   DONATE

This regatta’s purpose is to have fun and raise funds for cancer research. The event commemorates Tom Collier, an avid yachtsman and King Harbor Yacht Club member who succumbed to cancer too early at 31 years old. Thanks to your support and to generous donations since 1992, we have raised over $670,000.00. All the proceeds go to the King Harbor Yacht Club Tom Collier Memorial Cancer Research Lab at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center led by Dr. H. Phillip Koeffler, Director, Hematology/Oncology Division at Cedars-Sinai. This event provides much needed funds to continue the fight to find a cure for all forms of cancer. One in three people will have at least one form of cancer in their lifetime. Please find it in your heart to contribute. Your financial support helps to fund specialized researchers who are investigating ways to slow down and ultimately stop this devastating disease. All of us know someone who has been touched by cancer, we continue to honor them by supporting cancer research. In this challenging year we are simply requesting monetary contributions which will continue to fund specialized researchers in our lab.
