Jenner & Block is a sponsor of the Suburban Area Agency on Aging’s “Celebrating Independence” reception and silent auction held May 5 at the Blue Cross Blue Shield Building in Chicago, Illinois.  The celebration is held in honor of caregivers, and will feature an announcement of the organization’s new strategic direction.  All proceeds from the auction, which includes items totaling $25,000 in value, will be used to support respite services.

Fitness guru and best-selling author Jim Karas will serve as the keynote speaker.  In addition, guests will enjoy informal food and drink, a seven-piece steel band, and a video presentation about the agency’s services to the indigent elderly in suburban Cook County.

Partner Carla J. Rozycki is the president of the Suburban Area Agency on Aging’s Board of Directors, a not-for-profit corporation that plans, coordinates and funds programs and services for persons age 60 and over in suburban Cook County.
