“I am honored to be a Celebrate CJE Co-Chair. CJE SeniorLife is a vital community agency providing outstanding care for older adults,” said Marci L. Shapiro, who is an event co-chair along with fellow Board member Terri Freeman. “As state funding continues to be in flux, we rely more and more on the generosity of the community to sustain our programs and services. The donations raised through Celebrate CJE give us the resources to enhance the lives of older adults. We are seeing increased numbers of older adults and their family members turning to us in need of a safe caring place for their mom to live, or home delivered meals so their dad can age in place. We look forward to another successful event.”

Celebrate CJE helps sustain life enrichment programs, supportive resources, healthcare, research and education for older adults in the community. Reservations and donations for Celebrate CJE can be made at http://cje.net/celebratecje2017 or 773.508.1320.
