JVS Human Services’ Strictly Business Luncheon

Michigan Supreme Court Justice Richard Bernstein headlined the 22nd annual JVS Human Services’ Strictly Business networking event at Motor City Casino Hotel in Detroit. Bernstein inspired the crowd of almost 600 business and community leaders who were there to support JVS’ innovative employment practices for those with disabilities, as well as unemployed and underemployed workers and older job seekers. Awards were presented to Star Trax Events, Josh Gershonowicz, Kelly Flynn, Loukas Pallicaris and Sonya Terry. The event raised nearly $30,000.
