SALT LAKE CITY, Aug. 7, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- CTBC Bank (USA) and its parent company CTBC Financial Holdings have donated $200,000 as a global partner to the Huntsman Cancer Foundation, which kicks off its new annual Championship for Cancer Research fundraiser.

The event, which is part of a golf and gala campaign, will be held at Promontory's Jack Nicklaus-Designed Painted Valley Course in Park City, Utah on August 12 and will benefit cancer research at Huntsman Cancer Institute in Salt Lake City, UT.  Contributions including CTBC's pledge total more than $1 million for the fundraiser.

"Cancer truly is a global problem," said Susan Sheehan, Executive Director of Development at Huntsman Cancer Foundation.  "It takes a team of optimistic and innovative researchers, strong and pioneering leadership and dedicated partners to eradicate cancer.  We are so grateful to CTBC for generously supporting the Huntsman Cancer and children and families all over the world."
