KLAMATH FALLS, Ore. - The Oregon Tech Department of Athletics is pleased to receive the Pacific Power Foundation grant of $2,000 to help in the replacement of Oregon Tech’s current 46-year-old basketball floor at Danny Miles Court.
The community campaign - "Floor the Owls" - kicked off in May with the goal to raise $150,000 for a new basketball court at Oregon Institute of Technology. The campaign, a private endeavor spearheaded by the Danny Miles 1000 Win Committee, has now raised nearly $100,000 in cash and pledges for the funding to help with the new floor replacement.
“Oregon Tech is a vital part of the Klamath Falls community,” said Toby Freeman, regional community manager for Pacific Power. “Pacific Power Foundation is proud to partner with Oregon Tech athletics on this project to improve the safety of its athletes, while enhancing the fan experience as well.”
The goal of $150,000, hoped to be reached by Sept. 30, covers all costs related to the portable floor, including shipping and installation.
“The Pacific Power Foundation has been a long time, perfect partner not only with the Athletic Department but also across all of Oregon Tech,” said Russ McMahon, director of athletic development at Oregon Tech. “We are forever grateful that the Pacific Power Foundation continue to find ways to help Oregon Tech through its generous philanthropy.”
The court that would be purchased is one used for the NCAA Division I men's East Regional won by the University of Kentucky in March.
Those wishing to contribute to the campaign can call Russ McMahon at 541-882-3836 or email at email@example.com.
