Sense of Security has served more than 900 Colorado breast cancer patients while in treatment by providing over $1.5 million towards housing, utilities, groceries, transportation, COBRA or insurance premiums and other basic living expenses over the last 12 years. Sense of Security has served grantees from 48 Colorado counties statewide.
Please note that our group will not have another event until January 2015 as there are already too many holiday parties and folks skiing the first 2 weeks of December. We have a special event with an incredible dinner deal after the wine party so sign up now!

About our events: Denver Wine Meetup/UncorkedDenver.com events are a unique opportunity to socialize with other young/mid professionals and make new friends over at a wine and food pairing, with select wines paired with appetizers, sometimes with the winemaker visiting.
Our events differ from the many “happy hours” in a bar groups around Denver and high priced wine organizations, distributor/festival type events as the events are a wine social with the opportunity to meet a winemaker or wine manager and focus on learning about a winery and/or a varietal. Our events provide members a unique wine and culinary pairing event with the aspect of a social mixer at an affordable price. Although our events are not “singles” events, we try to keep an even split of males, females and couples at our events.
Please note: Our party area will be private (and blocked from the public) and we will turn away folks who do not have a ticket as we must provide the headcount to the chef and winemaker. This event will be limited to 100 attendees due to space
