Put a little optimism in a student's glass while filling yours -- with wine. Greenhouse Scholars is holding its annual Glass Half Full wine-tasting and fundraising event this evening, giving community members the chance to help transform the lives of our future leaders.
Green House Scholars, a non-profit organization that supports outstanding but under-resourced college students, is hosting its sixth annual Glass Half Full wine-tasting and auction from 6 to 10 p.m. at the McNichols Building in Civic Center Park.
The evening will include food from TAG, Sushi Hai, Root Down, Linger and Pinche Taqueria, all paired with wine or beer. Additional drinks will be provided by Breckenridge Distillery, Infinite Monkey Theorem, Leopold Bros. and Roundhouse Spirits. In addition to the all-star local food and drink lineup, there will be a silent auction with items such as fly-fishing trips, Aspen getaways and designer handbags. Tickets for the event are $150, and all proceeds benefit scholars from Colorado. Make a reservation or find more information here.
