4/6/2010: From reporter John Hunt in The Oregonian:
Are you a donor with money still burning a hole in your pocket? Do you feel those nine months went by so quickly that you haven’t adequately thanked Mike Bellotti for his work as athletic director?
Well, for $75 a plate, you can attend a Mike Bellotti tribute dinner.
There will even be a silent auction to raise more money. For what, you ask?
The funds will “be dedicated to covering the costs of the Tribute to Mike Bellotti event,” according to mikebellotti.com. Any overages, it said, will be deposited in the “Athletic Director’s Discretionary Fund.”
