Tom Lehman's charity event is cancelled

Golf pro Tom Lehman's charity golf event for the Children's Cancer Research Fund has been canceled this year because no title sponsor was found to replace Marshall Field's.

The event could return in 2004 if a title sponsor comes forward, said Jim Lehman, Tom Lehman's brother and senior vice president of SFX Sports Group.

"We're not abandoning the event," Jim Lehman said. "It may be that we simply skip this year."

The Lehmans are considering other ways to raise money for CCRF in 2003, but they've decided that it is not feasible to bring big-name tour players to the event this year.

Tom Lehman, a native Minnesotan and PGA Tour player, started the charity event as the Dayton's Challenge in 1995. The event featured touring pros from the PGA, LPGA and Senior PGA.

The event has raised more than $4.7 million for cancer research at the University of Minnesota during the event's eight years.
