On May 8, 2011 from 4:30-7 pm O Heroes will present the 1st annual student athlete talent show, Show Time
. Every team in the athletic department will be represented as the student athletes put on short performances exposing their talents off of the playing field at McDonald Theater in downtown Eugene. Show Time
has a dynamic pair of student-athletes lined up to emcee the event and there will be several special guest appearances by former and current student athletes from the UO as well as an exciting judging panel. Additionally, there will be athletes signing Duck memorabilia before the show and a silent auction with great local packages to bid on.
The Oregon athletic teams have been putting their acts together for the past several weeks and are excited to be able to have some fun and showcase their talents to benefit a cause they care about personally. O Heroes is a non-profit organization that allows the student athletes to positively impact the community by providing standout experiences for Duck fans and helping local non-profit service organizations to see out their missions.
Through partnerships with local organizations such as the Special Olympics, Committed Partners for Youth, and the Emerald Valley Boys and Girls Club, the O Heroes live out their motto, ‘Champions on the field, heroes in the community’.
Tickets to Show Time are $15 dollars for the public and $5 for students. Tickets are on sale at the EMU ticket office and through Ticketswest .
