150 Duck alums, fans and supporters of University of Oregon athletics gathered on the beautiful shores of Lake Tahoe for our fourth annual Ducks in Tahoe Event fundraiser for the Oregon Club of Northern California (OCNC) and the Duck Athletic Fund (DAF).
This year’s event raised money to fund scholarships and other support for our student/athletes. Honored guests included Football Defensive Coordinator Nick Aliotti; Head Baseball Coach George Horton; and the Men’s and Women’s Head Golf Coaches, Casey Martin and Ria Scott. Jerry Allen, “The Voice of the Oregon Ducks,” served as Master of Ceremonies.
The event began with a welcome party at the Riva Grill on the shores of Lake Tahoe that featured a highly enthusiastic live auction for prizes that included a “Coach for the Day” experience with the football team; Duck memorabilia autographed by coaches and players; golf outings with Nick Aliotti, George Horton, Ria Scott and Jerry Allen; and a Civil War package that included tickets to the game and hotel accommodations.
The weekend continued the following day with a scramble format golf tournament at the famed Edgewood Course. 2013 DUCKS in TAHOE prize winners were:
|1st Place||Sal Rivera, Luis Pelayo, Sal Rivera Jr., Mike Wegener|
|2nd Place||Stephanie Peters, Tina Reisweg, Karen McCusker, Annette Schroen, Casey Martin|
