Saturday, May 11
5:30 p.m.
Denver Marriott City Center

Fun, fashion, auction

CSU alumni, supporters, and friends will come together for an evening of fun, fashion, auction items … and mind reading!

Come celebrate CSU and enjoy all of the great CSU connections of the evening.

Auction: Wine tours, golf excursions, etc.

Attendees will have an opportunity to bid on a variety of items, including weekend trips to luxury hotels in the mountains, exclusive wine tours, golf excursions, and active getaways in Colorado.

In addition, this year’s Wine Wall gives attendees a chance at a $200 bottle of wine for just $25. All money raised will benefit the Metro Denver Scholarship and will increase the endowment to a level that will allow the University to give the scholarship to three students in perpetuity.

Scholarship supports CSU junior or senior

The Metro Denver Scholarship is for students who graduated from high school in the Denver area and are currently enrolled in Colorado State University as a junior or senior. The students must exhibit financial need to a level that they would not be able to complete their college degrees without the scholarship.

Be a part of this exclusively-CSU event. Purchase your tickets here no later than May 3.

Watch the invitation.
