Ducks broadcaster to speak at senior fundraiser

Duck football fever is spreading to West Linn, and it will help senior citizens who are victims of financial abuse.

Mike “Jorgy” Jorgensen, broadcaster for the University of Oregon Ducks, will be the keynote speaker at an awards dinner and auction in West Linn on Saturday, June 22, to raise funds for the nonprofit Senior Citizens Council of Clackamas County (SCCCC) of Oregon City.

The event will kick off at 6:15 p.m. and run to 9 p.m. at the Oregon Golf Club, 25700 S.W. Pete’s Mountain Road. Tickets are $50. Table sponsorships are available for $500. Hillside Chapel of Oregon City and attorney John W. “Jack” Lundeen of Lake Oswego are the presenting sponsors.

Ticket reservations and event sponsorships are available by calling 503-657-1366.

Also at the dinner, the SCCCC will present its Citizen for Seniors award to the Portland Women’s Foundation and the Newcomers Welcome Club of Lake Oswego & West Linn.

As the color analyst for the Ducks football radio broadcasts, Jorgensen of Eugene is one of the best-known sports figures in Oregon. Coaches, quarterbacks and titles might come and go, but every Saturday during the college football season for the past 23 years, many thousands of fans have listened to Jorgensen help call the Duck games.

At the June 22 dinner auction, Jorgensen will talk about his career as a Duck, some of the more memorable players he’s met, the upcoming season, and some of the highlights of his more than two decades viewing the team from his unique perspective.
