  Volunteers Needed

Are you looking for a way to help provide scholarships to Colorado High School Students attending University of Nebraska? Will you please consider volunteering for a watch partner location?  We will be working to staff with volunteers specific locations first to ensure resources are used the best way possible.  

Please email Wendy or Brittany at Volunteer@Co4NU.com with your availability for games and location.  For a site to have items for volunteers, we need to have at least half the season scheduled with volunteers for a specific location.

We also need volunteers to help with many other portions of Coloradans for Nebraska activities from web site maintenance, emails, and more. Please consider donating of your time for our young adults.

If your email address changes, on the bottom of each of these eNews is a link to allow you to update your information.  This allows the update to happen more quickly and you can make sure that the information is in our email service correctly and you don't miss any updates or activities.



  Where to Watch Games When Traveling

There are chapters of the Nebraska Alumni Association throughout the world.  There's a good possibility there may be a chapter or spirit group near your destination away from home so you can enjoy the game at another Sea of Red. 

To find watch locations, vist the Nebraska Alumni Site and choose the region you will be traveling too.  Chapters always enjoy out of town guests! 
Watch the Huskers With US!

The game for  Saturday, September 23, 2017  has a  1:30  kickoff and will be airing on BTN .  Please join us at one of our watch partner locations, listed below, to enjoy the game with other Huskers.  

See below for specials or other information the watch partner locations would like you to be aware of.  



Online Fundraising Auctions

Coloradans for Nebraska is working to create an ongoing online auction for game tickets, and other items. Our hope is that this will allow more people to help raise funds for scholarships in the comfort of their own home. Please look for the first auction to begin next week.  We will send out an email with additional details as soon as our first auction is set.



Volunteers, Merchandise, Memberships, and Drawings

To make it easier for our volunteers, when volunteers are at a watch partner location, they will only be selling memberships, collecting donations, holding half time drawings, and answering questions / greeting guests.  We may add limited Nebraska items to purchase to sites with volunteers in the future.

You can purchase your 2017 / 2018 membership online as well and it will be mailed to you allowing you to benefit from the 15% discount off of regular priced food and drink at our watch partner locations.  In the near future, limited edition Coloradans for Nebraska merchandise as well as a few Nebraska items will be added to our online store

With the drawings this year, we are going back to all tickets going into one big drawing bucket and volunteers will pull winning numbers from the bucket for the prizes available.  There will be general drawings and drawings for autographed items for current Coloradans for Nebraska members.
