The O’Reilly family has pledged $6 million toward a $12 million state-of-the-art events center at Drury University. The new center will be called the O’Reilly Family Event Center, where Drury graduation, athletic and community events will take place. The family founded O’Reilly Auto Parts in Springfield, Mo., in 1957. The events center will serve as the new home for the tradition-rich Panther and Lady Panther basketball programs, both currently ranked in the Top 10 nationally in NCAA Division II, as well as other constituencies. ??
