The Oregon Club of Portland's Regence Kick-Off Dinner presented by UBS at the Crystal Ballroom heard Head Coach Mark Helfrich discuss his players (all awesome) in an "off-the record report" exclusive for attendees, followed by Q&A. Athletic Director Rob Mullens provided highlights of last year's Oregon sports achievements.. It was truly a great evening for 350 Ducks to mix and mingle and talk football before the season.
The season starting Program was hosted by Oregon Fox 12 ‘s Pete Ferryman and anchored by Club President Josh Frankel, Event Chair Matt Cole, OCOP Executive Director Julie Lee, Club Event Manager Anusha Josepth and Portland Duck Donor Director Kim Murray.
The big question is where did the band and dancers Bloco Alegria come from and will they be back next year?
Don’t miss the Football Season Luncheons which start Thursday, October 16 before the Washington game and hear a video report with Coach Helfrich from Eugene, plus the live banter about the previous weeks UCLA game from Anthony Newman and Jorgy.
With the season right around the corner, make sure to sign up for other exciting Oregon Club of Portland events!
