Golf tournament sponsors GA cancer research effort

AUGUSTA, Ga. (AP) — An effort by Georgia Regents University to establish a national cancer research center has gotten a $6 million boost from the Masters golf tournament.

The money is expected to help the university meet the local match needed for a new cancer research building on campus, and establish a camp for sick and disabled children. The tournament is hosted annually at the Augusta National Golf Club.

Club spokesman Steve Ethun tells the Augsuta Chronicle (http://bit.ly/1kSHwh1 ) the gift is in addition to support the club already provides through a foundation to dozens of local charities.

Georgia Regents University is trying to establish the state's second National Cancer Institute-designated facility, and the first at a public university in Georgia. Emory University is home to the Winship Cancer Institute in Atlanta.
