Spend an Evening with Mark Helfrich, Head Coach for the University of Oregon Ducks Football Team

Community, Events, Hotel News Comments Off

Mark Helfrich

This winter, one of Coos Bay’s most distinguished natives is coming to The Mill Casino!

We are pleased to be the host site for the Coos Bay Schools Community Foundation Dinner, where guests will enjoy a chef prepared buffet dinner and an evening with Mark Helfrich, Head Coach for the University of Oregon Ducks Football Team and 92’ Marshfield High School Graduate.

Proceeds from the event benefit the Coos Bay Schools Community Foundation, a non-profit organization that promotes programs for the arts, academics, activities, and athletics to benefit the students of the Coos Bay School District.

Helfrich 2014 Spring Game Mark Helfrich has a special connection to our community. He grew up in Coos Bay, and became the quarterback at Marshfield High School before graduating in 1992. He turned down an opportunity to walk on at Oregon to attend Southern Oregon University, where he set school records as the starting quarterback from 1992-1995. During those years, Helfrich became an NAIA Scholar-Athlete (1993) and led the nation in total offense while earning NAIA honorable mention All-America accolades before he graduated with a bachelor’s degree in biology in 1996.

In January 2013, Mark Helfrich was named the head football coach at the University of Oregon, where he previously served as the offensive coordinator from 2009 to 2012. Born in Medford, Ore., Helfrich is the first native Oregonian to head the university’s football program in 71 years. In his first year as head coach, Helfrich led the Ducks to an impressive 11-2 season and a 30-7 Alamo Bowl triumph over Texas, surpassing Chip Kelly’s Oregon record for most wins by a rookie head coach. Proving that the first season was not a fluke, Coach Helfrich has led the Ducks this season to an outstanding 12-1 record in 2014, making them 1st in the North Division. The Ducks will be playing Florida State in the nationally televised Rose Bowl game on January 1, 2015.

Best Hotel Oregon Coast

Yeah we said it! Best Hotel on Oregon’s South Coast!

But don’t take our word for it. Just ask the readers of The World newspaper, a daily publication covering the Bay Area of Oregon: Coos Bay, North Bend, Coquille, Myrtle Point, Bandon and Reedsport.

We recently learned that The Mill Casino has once again been voted “Best Hotel” on Oregon’s south coast in the 2014 Best of the South Coast Poll!

In the same poll, we were also named “Best Casino”, ” Best Business in North Bend” (tied with Cicarelli’s) and a “favorite” for “Best Customer Service” on the South Coast. The annual “Best of the South Coast” poll is a chance for readers to pick their favorite local businesses from all over Oregon’s South Coast.

The Mill Casino Are we honored that our hard working staff has received recognition for their enthusiasm and dedication to excellence?

Very.

Are we surprised?

No.

“I’ve worked in the industry for over 20 years now,” says Suzann Anaya, Director of Hotel Operations, “and I really mean it when I say that THIS team is the BEST I have had the pleasure working with. I look forward to coming to work each day and running our amazing hotel together”.

On behalf of The Mill Casino, we’d like to say THANK YOU to The World Link and everyone who voted to recognize the outstanding work that our staff does each and every day! Be on the lookout next month for the full list of winners and businesses in The World Link.
