A Virtual Benefit for Promise to Career Nursing Scholarships

Event Details

  • When: Tuesday, November 30, 2021, 6:00 to 7:00 pm
  • Cost: $100* per tasting kit. Buy tickets today!

* Each $100 ticket covers a $75 tax-deductible contribution to the Promise to Career Nursing Scholarship Fund. The additional $25 covers a two-bottle wine sampler to be delivered/shipped to your front door (California residents only).

Join Los Rios Colleges Foundation and Acheson Wine Company for an evening of wine and good cheer on Giving Tuesday – and make an impact on future nurses in our region!

Led by Brian Scott, Certified Sommelier and Co-Founder of Acheson Wine Company, a local Sacramento winery producing wines in a sustainable way, participants will be guided through a tasting of red and white wine. Each tasting bottle is 375 ml; two bottles are equivalent to a 750 ml bottle of wine.

Brian is an expert in the field and can answer any questions you have about wine – both what is produced by Acheson, and wine generally! He will also suggest cheese pairings in advance for those who may want to purchase cheese on their own to accompany their tasting.

Buy Tickets

Wine Delivery

Wine tasting kits will be hand-delivered to participants in the greater Sacramento region, including surrounding cities/towns such as Roseville, Rocklin, Loomis, El Dorado Hills, Folsom, Cameron Park, Placerville, Davis, Woodland, Elk Grove, Wilton, and Rancho Murieta.

The last day for wine delivery is Monday, November 29, 2021.

Wine Pick-Up

Participants are also welcome to pick up their wine any time at Acheson Wine Company (19th and Q Streets in Sacramento) until the day of the event. Please check the Acheson website for their hours of operation.


If you live outside of the greater Sacramento region (but within California) and your wine must be shipped, then you must buy your tickets no later than November 15, 2021. Because of ongoing pandemic shipping delays and the Thanksgiving holiday, we cannot guarantee the wine will arrive in time if ordered after November 15.


Please contact Victoria Austin at (916) 558-2198 or

The Zoom link will be emailed to all registrants the week before the event.

About Promise to Career Nursing Scholarships

The Promise to Career Nursing Scholarship Fund provides "finish line" scholarships to students in the American River College and Sacramento City College Nursing programs that help pay for state testing and licensing requirements ($500 per person) upon graduation.

New nurses are critical right now to help fight the pandemic and to address the nursing shortage in our region. Please help us meet our goal to raise $20,000 this fall to provide a scholarship to every graduating student this December. Together we can remove the last barrier that stands in the way between nursing students and their new careers!

We are excited to share that a generous SCC alumnus has agreed to match all gifts to the Promise to Career Nursing Scholarship Fund – up to a total of $5,000 – in support. Your gift will help us to secure this match and will make a direct impact on our nursing students. Make a gift today!
