Recently, representatives of Miller’s Charity Classic presented a check for $25,000 for the IU Melvin and Bren Simon Cancer Center. The donation included the proceeds from the annual Miller’s Charity Classic held in September at the Trophy Club in Lebanon, hosted by Miller’s Health Systems and Miller’s facilities around the State. Since its inception, the Charity Classic, now in its 15th year, has raised well over $200,000.
The Classic supports cancer research through the Robert Wallace Miller Chair in Oncology at the IU Melvin and Bren Simon Cancer Center. The “Robbie Chair”, as it has become known, was established in 1995 by Dick and Jane Miller in memory of their son, and is crucial in recruiting a nationally recognized cancer researcher to be named as holder of the Chair. Under this individual's leadership, significant time and resources are devoted to this important area of study, offering hope to those stricken with cancer.
Planning for the 15th Annual Miller's Charity Classic, scheduled for September 18th, 2014, is currently under way.
