Bill Lively has helped raise hundreds of millions of dollars over the years for SMU, the AT&T Performing Arts Center and the 2011 Super Bowl.

Mayor Tom Leppert may have been thinking something like that last night when he introduced Lively for the Entrepreneurs for North Texas outfit at its ninth annual Spirit of Entrepreneurship bash honoring Lively in Dallas.
