Cencup Events
Activities to Liven Up Your Social Calendar
July 2015
Cencup This Summer with Something New! We believe we've crafted a wide array of fun events and outings so all couples can dive in and find something they know they'll love. We also want to encourage you to test the waters with an event that is new or a little out of your typical activity. 

Events range from relaxation (ahhh... the cruise!), to sports including baseball and horse racing (MN Twins and Fulton Brewery and Canterbury) and learning (marriage enrichment) to volunteering (Simon Says Give). Find them all right here in our monthly events preview, with events generally falling on the second and fourth weeks of each month. You can always find us on our website or social channels, like Facebook. and invite others to join. We look forward to your RSVP!  -- Jackie & Eric Grant, founders, Cencup

Participate in friendly competition with opportunities to demonstrate your knowledge or even your singing skills, if that’s your cup of tea. It will surely be a memorable evening full of energy, lots of fun and laughs!

Help us support Simon Says Give in their effort for 2015 High Five for Supplies: to support another 10,000 kids with Backpacks and School Supplies! Volunteer as a couple, its both satisfying and enriching! 


Marriage Enrichment Seminar

Invest in your marriage because it matters. Make your marriage a priority and join us for dinner followed by inspired learning from world-renowned author and speaker Dr. Caroline Leaf.

The Marriage Enrichment Seminar is free and hosted by River Valley Church in Shakopee. We will have a group dinner at 5:00 at a nearby restaurant and then proceed to River Valley Church. Sign up to be nourished and enriched!

Boat Cruise

MN Twins + Brewery Tour
August 29, 4:00-9:00p.m.

This is not any old baseball game -- this is a group experience that is sure to be memorable!   Baseball and beer have always gone together, so how about kicking off the game with a group brewery tour to sweeten the experience? Join us for great seats (Section 129, 2nd Row, right behind 3rd base) at the Twins vs. Houston Astros game August 29th.  We will start with a brewery tour at Fulton's and better yet, the first round of flights are on us!  Baseball, brews and great connections is a trifecta that is sure to leave a lasting impression! 


Horse Racing at Canterbury Park
September 11, 6:30-9:00p.m.

Live horse racing is at its finest with VIP tables sponsored by Nite Trane transportation. With reserved tables right on the glass and excellent viewing of the racing, there will be plenty of opportunity to see your favorite horse run.  We will begin the evening with a round of appetizers and learn some tips and techniques from a horse owner on racing. Then... the fun begins! Throughout the evening there will be several races and in between the races we have interactive social activities planned. And if your lucky horse wins, there will be photo opportunities with the winning horse! Event details coming soon...

Benefits of Cencup

Cencup is about encouraging new experiences and discovering new passions together as a couple, while meeting other fun couples. We plan the social outings so you can step out of your comfort zone and try something new, making it easy to sign up and show up. Maybe kayaking is just the thing to re-ignite your passion! 
What's Your Purpose?
The number one factor in happiness, dealing with depression, life stressors, positive well being, and fulfilling one of our most basic psychological needs is to relate and connect with others!  According to Richard Lieder, author of Life Reimagined, a sense of community is essential to living and identifying ones purpose. 
Researcher Brene Brown says connecting with others brings purpose and meaning, check out her TEDTalk on the value of connecting.
