Golfers Give $12 Million for Cancer Research


'Golfers Against Cancer,' a charitable endeavor in Houston devoted to fighting the disease, recently awarded $1.2 million to a number of cancer research groups.
M.D. Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, involved in a number of cancer-related projects, received funding for brain and luch tumor research, gene and cell research, as well as funding for ovarian cancer research.
The group also held a 'Dinner for Research' at the New York Athletic Club. The group has given significant funding to the Memorial Sloan-Ketting group of New York.
Golfers Against Cancer has increased its charitable giving each year of its existence. In 1997, the year of its inception, the group gave $85,000. Through this year, it has given almost $4 million.
