Popular wine event draws Colorado Springs Jayhawks

Colorado Springs wine tasting event
Jayhawks flocked to the Patty Jewett Clubhouse in Colorado Springs last week for a wine-tasting event that has become an annual tradition.

Once again, sommelier Drew Robinson, b’85, led the tasting, and alumni and friends (and even a young Future Jayhawk!) enjoyed KU camaraderie, a silent auction and raffle with unique KU items.

Teri Harris, vice president of membership, was on hand to share news from the Hill.

Thanks to all of our Lawrence-area Jayhawks who attended a wine tasting and networking event on Oct. 23 at the Adams Alumni Center.  The crowd of around 75 people was educated by sommelier Drew Robinson, b’85, on all things wine—from acidity to zinfandel and so much more.

Heath Peterson, d’04, g’09, vice president of alumni programs, and Brandon Petz, b’06, g’07, local volunteer, shared some updates about the Alumni Association and the Lawrence network.

Watch for more exciting events in the Lawrence area in the upcoming months! If you haven’t been to an alumni event in the past, now is a great time to get involved. Visit the Lawrence network’s website for more information, and join the Lawrence Jayhawks Facebook group to connect with fellow ‘Hawks.
