CJE SeniorLife, a nationally-recognized and progressive health and human services organization that serves more than 19,000 older adults and their families in metropolitan Chicago, will hold its eighth fundraising benefit, Celebrate CJE, on Tuesday evening, October 8, beginning at 5:30 p.m. The annual dinner and program, which takes place at the Sheraton Chicago Hotel and Towers, 301 East North Water St., will highlight the organization’s rich history and innovative, comprehensive network that includes life enrichment programs, supportive resources, healthcare, research and education.
The Philip Myers Band will headline the evening’s program with a special performance.

“Celebrate CJE has always received an overwhelmingly positive response from those who attended,” said Karen Rosenthal, who is a Celebrate CJE co-chair along with fellow Board member Jordy Berger. “We look forward to once again sharing a fun, festive and informative evening with family, friends and the community. A successful fundraising event is critical to ensure the continuation of CJE SeniorLife’s vital programs and services to the older adults in our community who rely on CJE now more than ever.”
Support of Celebrate CJE helps the organization enhance and expand its core programs, including Alzheimer’s care, Parkinson’s programming, creative arts therapies, counseling and care management, personal care, community healthy aging and wellness programs, as well as funding of new projects, which include Cardiologist-Guided Specialty Care from the recently developed Lieberman Center for Heart Health, and their exciting, new Virtual Senior Center pilot program, which connects isolated older adults with programs and activities from the comfort of your own home.
