Wine Tasting Event – 2018

Join Coloradans for Nebraska for our 6th Annual Wine Tasting with James Arthur Vineyards of Raymond Nebraska on Saturday, April 28, 2018. This event will begin at 7:00 p.m. with doors opening at 6:30 at Noonan’s Event Center at 13521 E. Iliff Ave. in Aurora. The wines will be paired with a four course meal.

For current Coloradans for Nebraska members, ticket prices are just $40 per person.  Non members, ticket prices are $50 per person.  Tickets include paired wine and the four course meal.

First course will be Fig Compote on a Crostini which will be paired with Edelweiss.

Second course will be Chicken and Sweet Potato Curry Lettuce wrap which will be paired with Nebraska White.

The third course will be Pork Loin with Apple Chutney and Sage, Rosemary Red Potatoes, and Sauted Brussel Sprouts. This will be served with High Road.

The final course will be Almond Biscotti Dipped in Chocolate and will be paired with Tropasti.

Please note in your ticket order if there are any members of your group that has a food allergy or sensitivity to Gluten, Nuts, or Dairy so a specially made portion of the meal can be made for them. Every effort will be made to ensure cross contamination does not occur but we are unable to guarantee due to the nature of the working kitchen.

Proceeds from this event go towards the Coloradans for Nebraska Scholarship Fund which provides scholarships to Colorado High School Graduates that will be or are currently attending the University of Nebraska.

There will be a live auction during the event benefitting the Coloradans for Nebraska Scholarship Fund.  For your favorite wines, James Arthur Vineyard will bring a limited amount of bottles available for sale at the end of the event.

Colorado Gives Day – Donating to Coloradans for Nebraska

With Colorado Gives Day, Coloradans for Nebraska was asked how someone could give to Co4NU Scholarship Fund and receive a tax credit.

Coloradans for Nebraska (Co4NU) is a non-profit entity. But we are classified as a social club with the IRS. We fall under IRS Code 501 (c ) (7). Thus, contributions or donations to Co4NU are not tax deductible.

As Coloradans for Nebraska has a scholarship fund through the University of Nebraska Foundation for the Legends Scholarships, given to incoming Freshman that are from Colorado, you can donate to that fund as it is under IRS Code 501 (c) (3) to receive a tax deduction. Click the link to donate to the Co4NU Legends Scholarship Fund.

Thank you for thinking of Coloradans for Nebraska and Higher Education!
