Of course, Boone Pickens is known for much more than just having his name on a Division I football stadium in Oklahoma. He's got a name on a building on campus as well, oh and he's a pretty rich guy thanks to the energy industry.
So the OSU Alumni Association and The Orange County Chapter are hosting "An Evening With Boone Pickens" because, why not?
Here's a little tidbit from the site:
"Dinner guests can enjoy cocktails at 5 p.m. with a sit-down dinner with Mr. Pickens beginning at 6 p.m.Dinner guests are welcome to stay and participate in the general discussion session. Executive dinner tickets are $1,500 per person and quantities are extremely limited."
That's a good amount of money. You could buy a Samsung 55-inch Smart Ultra HD Television from Best Buy, or almost five Xbox Ones or about four Playstation 4's(all before tax obviously). Here's some more things you can do.
- At least one ticket off of StubHub for Kobe Bryant's last game in the NBA.
- An iPhone 5s
- One month rent for an apartment in New York City (and not a good one)
