Charities that auction off alcohol in fundraisers — wine baskets and the like — will no longer be breaking the law in Colorado.
Sponsored by state Sen. Rachel Zenzinger, D-Arvada and Sen. Kevin Priola, R-Henderson, the law allows organizations to auction sealed beer, wine and spirits without the transaction being considered a sale of alcohol that would violate the license of any facility where a fundraiser is being held.
