Aged to Perfection featuring the Earthen Vessel Award Needing Silent Auction Items

The 13th annual Aged to Perfection featuring the Earthen Vessel Award event will be held on October 4th at the CU South Denver campus (off I-25 and Lincoln in Lone Tree). The event will raise money for the Resident Assistance Fund, helping qualifying CLC residents who, through no fault of their own, can no longer afford their care. 

There will be a vibrant silent auction, delicious international food, wine tasting stations, a live jazz band, and a short presentation about CLC’s mission, as well as time to honor this year’s Earthen Vessel recipient. The theme is Postcards from Around the World, and will tie our international backgrounds into every part of the event. 

If you wish to donate a Silent Auction item such as:
- Gift certificates
- Golf outings
- Mountain condo stay
- Pro sports tickets

or the like, please contact Lucy Floyd, our Donor Relations Coordinator at 720.974.3642
