  • ACOG LOOKS TO INDIVIDUAL CONTRIBUTIONS FOR HELP

         For the first time, Atlanta Olympic organizers are turning
    their attention to individual donors.  Individuals or small
    businesses who contribute as much as $50,000 to ACOG will receive
    at least two tickets of the contributors choice for each day of
    the games, including opening and closing ceremonies.  "Up until
    now, ACOG has not sought private donations to help cover the $1.58
    billion bill for the Games," and ACOG President Billy Payne had
    said earlier he would not look for individual contributions.  ACOG
    Managing Dir of Games Services Scott Anderson called the new
    program an "innovative ticket package," as the program will seek
    "patrons" -- both individuals and small businesses who will
    receive a variety of perks, including parking and special events
    (Melissa Turner, ATLANTA CONSTITUTION, 1/13).

    it will establish a hospitality center for athletes and guests
    during the Games (ATLANTA CONSTITUTION, 1/13).
