Please note, Coloradans for Nebraska is no longer partnering with Fox and Hound.  Fox and Hound made a decision that they no longer wanted to provide a discount to Coloradans for Nebraska Members nor provide a donation to the Co4NU Scholarship Fund.  The Board of Directors decided we wanted your membership to continue to have value at all of our partner locations so have secured new locations for our members to enjoy games and discounts.  We are happy that our new corporate sponsor, Old Chicago, has stepped forward in two regions of Colorado to provide our members many places to utilize member discounts.

To allow Coloradans for Nebraska to focus on scholarship fundraising, we have been partnering with Mark Knudson for the last several years so Husker Football is on the radio.  To make this successful, businesses are always welcomed to contact Mark to discuss advertising opportunities and partnerships.
