The Bin Blessed “babes” were thrilled to celebrate their first year of collecting items for There With Care, a nonprofit which serves critically ill children and their families.  This dedicated group of women held a party in April to celebrate their successes and were once again reminded of their mission as they heard from a mother of a child with leukemia speak about her experiences.  Castle Pines Village resident Cy DeBoer started the program and remarked, “This past year has proven what I have always believed. Most people truly want to give, they just need to be given an opportunity that touches their hearts and doesn’t require a huge commitment of time or resources.  Because of this community, Bin Blessed has soared beyond our expectations.  It has been the greatest joy to meet more of my neighbors and become joined at the heart with them.  What a remarkably beautiful thing…thank you!”  The first year anniversary party was planned by several of the babes.  From left to right:  Cy DeBoer, Suzette Olson (the party hostess), Martha Parsley, Nelle Inabinet, Ellen O’Connor, Sallie Daihl, and Audrey Walker.  For more information about Bin Blessed, visit
