Jenner & Block is a sponsor of the AgeOptions’ Celebrating Diversity in Aging benefit auction and reception being held at the Blue Cross Blue Shield Atrium on June 21 in Chicago, Illinois.  The benefit will celebrate the diversity of older adults, and proceeds from the benefit auction will support AgeOptions’ efforts to assist older persons with limited English speaking skills and to increase the accessibility of its service systems.

In addition, Terry Savage, a consumer affairs journalist and the best-selling author of “The Savage Number: How Much Money Do You Need to Retire?” will be a featured guest at the event.

Jenner & Block Partner Carla J. Rozycki is a member and former president of the board of directors of AgeOptions and is helping to organize the fundraiser as part of the board’s event committee.  In October 2005, she received the Governor's Award for Unique Achievement from the Illinois Department of Aging, in recognition of her "dedicated community service and exceptional concern for Illinois seniors."
