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).
