Dear Members and Friends,

As we close out 2022, the Cherry Creek Chamber would like to thank you for your amazing support. This has been a quite a year of growth as we welcomed more than 70 new members and hosted 47 Chamber events, including the following:
  • Business Success Series
  • Business After Hours
  • Sunrise Scrambles
  • Young Professionals
  • Women of Cherry Creek
  • Chamber Chompers
  • Ribbon Cuttings
  • Wicket & Stick It
  • Annual Luncheon
  • Holiday Auction
  • Cherry Creek Tour
Additionally, our Leads Groups held 10-12 meetings per month, and our 2022 calendar boasted another 40 member-hosted events. There is truly something for everyone.

We also learned about the exciting changes coming to our neighborhood. Cherry Creek is doing exceptionally well post pandemic, and there will be significant new development coming to our one square mile. If you want to learn more about this then make sure you sign up for our Business Success Series next week.

As we close out the year, we are grateful to all of our generous sponsors and to our donors for our Annual Holiday Silent Auction. We count on this Silent Auction to strengthen the future of the Chamber, and you came through for your chamber and community once again.

Looking forward to seeing you at events this month and in the new year!

What brought you to start your business or get into your industry? Modern Christmas Trees started in 2011 as a tribute to my Grandpa, Lawrence "Bud" Stoecker, who designed a tree for our family made of concentric rings back in 1966. He was suffering from Alzmeimer's, so I thought a fitting tribute to him would be to update his original idea and show the world his contribution to design. His signature is engraved on every tree that I make.

What do you love most about what you do? My favorite part about running Modern Christmas Trees is the collaboration I get to have with talented and creative people. I get to work with three of my best friends, including my photographer, Graphic Designer and Marketing Director. They are all very smart, talented and opinionated!
How can the Chamber help you? The Chamber can help by doing exactly this! Giving me the opportunity to share my story of the trees and tell the rich history behind them.
