A Special Night

Nibbles and Sips, An Evening to Help Us Improve Family Wellness, is a fine food and beverage tasting gala event that brings the community together to raise money in support of IFCS’ Basic Services and Enrichment Programs. These resources aim to meet the essential human needs, like food, clothing, and shelter.

At this event, you can sample more than 300 wines, spirits and beers from around the world, coupled with wonderful offerings from local restaurants such as Alamo Draft House, Bad Daddy Burger, Breckenridge Brewery Farmhouse, Corner Bakery, Marriot DTC, The Melting Pot, Piccolo’s, Nothing Bolts Cafe, Red Bird Farms, Romano’s Restaurant, Tico’s Mexican, Torchies Tacos, Seasons 52 Fresh Grill with more joining in. Non-alcoholic beverages are also available. It is truly one of the feel good charity events where the community comes together to have a lively casual evening to support our struggling neighbors. The evening includes inspirational speakers, live music, interactive games, local celebrities and many “feel-good moments” plus a large variety of silent and live auction items. Last year, Nibbles and Sips raised $184,000 through sponsorships, games of skill, auctions and a paddle raiser.

With your help, we can reach our goal of $200,000 and provide an immediate, positive impact on our many families and individuals seeking vital resources.

Entertaining Emcee and Auctioneer

Mark Koebrich, was with 9News for more than 37 years. He started in September 1981 at the Colorado Springs bureau and he became the station’s utility player. He’s anchored and done special reports for all the time slots. In the late 1980s he had a stint as national correspondent for USA Today’s former national TV show, and in the early ‘90s he helmed KUSA’s “Good Afternoon Colorado” in its short, heroic run. He most recently covered the consumer beat for the station, but he’s best known for his generosity of spirit and indefatigable good nature. He’s the affable uncle who gets along with everybody at Thanksgiving dinner, the guy you want to sit next to. His first brush with broadcasting was on the PA system at Kmart calling out the Bluelight Specials.
