Happy Holidays from CCESocial
       
 
 
In the spirit of the holidays, we have some charitable causes that our community is trying to support. 
 
 
CHERRY CREEK EAST ASSOCIATION -  MetroCaring
Sadly, we won’t be able to have a holiday party in December because of Covid-19. This live event focuses on strengthening our neighborhood relationships, including supporting our partner non-profit, MetroCaring.  Last December, $1,100 was raised from CCE neighbors attending the party at Choppers.   This non-profit is dedicated to meeting Denver residents’ immediate food needs while addressing the root causes of hunger.  Their food insecurity is greater than ever before with unemployment soaring during the pandemic.  MetroCaring’s out-of-pocket food expenses for one month have exceeded what they spent in all of 2019.   Also, the number of Coloradans seeking their food services for themselves and their families has tripled in 2020. 
We, unfortunately have many food-insecure neighbors this year.  Please consider donating to MetroCaring during the upcoming holiday season by visiting Donate-Metro Caring.  Many thanks.  Should you need further information please contact Linda Feldman at lindafeldman2004@yahoo.com.
 
 
SINGLES CLUB –  Child Life, Denver Health
This event is open to all residents and not just singles. This month the Singles Club will be participating in a program designed to benefit the Child Life program at Denver Health.  This program serves the needs of hospitalized children and their families, families who visit Denver Health clinics, and teens who are part of the adolescent inpatient psychiatric program at the hospital.  The Program Director shared with us a comprehensive list of much needed/desired items for the children and families the Child Life program serves. The Director also told us the need is particularly great this year, given how the pandemic has affected not only health, but employment, and for many mental health.  If you would like to participate, please contact Janis Cooper at jccoop155@aol.com.   
 
 
CCEA NEIGHBORHOOD WATCH PROGRAM
If you see anything out of the ordinary or suspicious behavior, you can contact Officers officer Kate Young at 720-913-1248 or officer AJ Pacheco at 720-913-1245  With Holidays arriving be sure to NOT leave anything in the car. You might know it's only a bag with garbage in it, but those who are looking for valuables don't.  A broken window is not fun, especially in cold weather. Enjoy Holidays, keep any outdoor lights on in the evening.  The neighborhood thanks you! For more information, please contact Connie at cce.neighborhoodwatch@gmail.com.
 
 
EVENTS HAPPENING IN CHERRY CREEK EAST:
 
Many of our events listed below are continuing to use social distancing connections through the use of Zoom.

BUNCO – Meets Monthly – On hold until further notice
Bunco is a fun and easy dice game that is a perfect neighborhood activity.  If interested, please contact CCESocial@comcast.net.
 
 
CELLAR DWELLERS FUTURE EVENTS – On hold until further notice
This is one of our best attended social gatherings in the neighborhood.  This is such a fun way to meet new people.  Please consider hosting this fun and easy neighborhood event.  Team up with someone.  There's really nothing to it, pick a type of wine or wine region for your party.  Zoom is very easy to access and is working for some of our other events.  Many of the same neighbors have been hosting year after year, and that's great; however, the fact is that we need new people to step up.  If you've been coming to Cellar Dwellers, enjoying the fun but hesitating to host, please jump in and give it a try.  We need you!  Please contact Jane Nero at janenero@comcast.net for further information.

WOMEN’S WINE AND DINE - Monthly - First Wednesday of the month
Details for the December event will be announced soon.  Before Covid, we would meet on the first Wednesday of the month and try restaurants in the area.  This is a great way for the women from the neighborhood to meet and mingle with one another.  Because this event has been so successful, it is open to CCE residents only.  Typically, we start at 5:30 pm so we can take advantage of the happy hour if the restaurant offers it.  Attendance is sometimes limited due to restaurant restrictions.  If interested, please contact Janis Cooper at jccoop155@aol.com.
