Upcoming Wine Events in the Metro

Proceeds support Easter Seals Nebraska programs and services, helping individuals with disabilities have equal opportunities to live, learn, work and play in their communities. Tickets are $150 each or $200 for two, for more information email ianderson@ne.easterseals.com
vinNEBRASKA wine event March 31, from 5-9 p.m. Known as Omaha's original wine event, the vinNEBRASKA wine event has become one of the city's most successful fundraisers, having raised nearly $2 million for local charities since its inception.
