Tickets are still available for the Purdue Athletic Hall of Fame Induction Dinner on November 5. The dinner will honor six former student athletes, many of whom not only succeeded in college, but also in the professional ranks.
The 1999 class of inductees is Bernie Allen, Bob DeMoss, Jim Everett, Paul Hoffman, Marianne Orr, and Joe Patacsil. The dinner will be held in the Purdue Memorial Union Ballroom, and will cost $60 per person.
All of these impressive athletes helped bring Purdue athletics into the national spotlight. Among the members there is a former Major League Baseball player, a former National Football League player, a National Basketball Association Rookie-of-the-Year, an NCAA wrestling champion, an All-American volleyball star, and one of Purdue's first great quarterbacks. There will also be a public presentation during the Purdue-Wisconsin football game at Ross-Ade Stadium on November 6. The tickets are available through the John Purdue Club at (765) 494-3248.
