Celebrate CJE 2020 Virtual Gala

With COVID-19 having reached pandemic levels and older adults being one of the most vulnerable to the disease, CJE SeniorLife is doing everything possible to keep our residents and clients safe, healthy and engaged.

Now more than ever, our beloved seniors need you.

To put the health and safety of our community first, CJE is turning its annual Celebrate CJE gala into a virtual celebration. It will be a fun-filled engaging hour-long event and most importantly, will provide an opportunity for our supporters to honor CJE’s frontline staff; the heroes who provide care to those who need it most.
