There With Care’s Red Carpet Adventure

Join There With Care on Saturday, September 13, for another amazing Red Carpet event. Last year was a huge success for the families served at There With Care. With the generosity of everyone involved, the event was filled with love. Held in both Denver and Boulder, each event was sold out and the venues were filled with gracious and caring guests. The incredible musicians who were involved last year and this year, share a deep connection to the mission of There With Care. Funds raised during the live and silent auctions allowed There With Care to continue to provide a wide range of meaningful and fundamental services to children and families during the critical phase of a medical crisis with compassion and care. Don’t miss the amazing opportunity to attend this one-of-a-kind event.

Dave Dixon, marketing and sponsorship director for the Cherry Creek Shopping Center, says it’s definitely getting an 801 Chophouse as the Cherry Creek Shopping Center celebrates its 25th birthday in August. John Elway, whose flagship Elway’s has held down the western edge of the mall for a decade, might want to throw a flag on the idea of a second steakhouse opening there. But Cherry Creek North is about to get both another seafood restaurant, Blue Island Oyster Bar and another meat market, Del Frisco’s Grille. Big things are happening as the Cherry Creek shopping center turns 25, and 801 Chophouse welcomes you to join the celebration with them.
