To commemorate the founding of the University of Nebraska on February 15, 1869, San Diego Huskers will host a special Founders’ Day Luncheon on Saturday February 19, 2022. This exceptional event will take place at Wilson Creek Winery & Vineyard located at 35960 Rancho California Road in Temecula from noon to 3 pm that day. A cash bar will be available for those wishing to partake of the vineyard’s fine wines during the social period and / or with this hot buffet meal:

Cost of the event is $60.
