A big THANK YOU to our members, guests, friends, family, business partners, former Husker athletes, scholarship recipients, Nebraska Alumni Association staff, CFN volunteers, and CFN board of directors for making 2013 another amazing year for Coloradans for Nebraska and the scholarship program.  May your Thanksgiving be filled with family, friends, good food, and football!

Donations will be accepted for the Toy Drive at these locations outside of Nebraska game days as well so feel free to visit them for pro football, for lunch, for dinner, or for happy hour.
