On Nov. 11, JVS Human Services held its 13th annual Trade Secrets Event at the Detroit Marriott Troy. The event raised nearly $274,000 for Women to Work, a program that offers intensive assessment, testing, and job-search training for women needing immediate employment.
JVS Human Services, which is based in Southfield, provides counseling, training and supportive services for people with disabilities, job seekers, seniors, and others in need. The event’s emcee was Fox 2’s Amy Lange, and the keynote speaker was Shari Finsilver of Orchard Lake, who has dedicated her life to advocating for patients, like herself, who suffer from Essential Tremor, the most common movement disorder.
Finsilver started the first International Essential Tremor Foundation (IETF) support group for Michigan patients 20 years ago and is currently the organization’s vice president.
