Strictly Business 2017

More than 600 business and community leaders attended our 20th annual Strictly Business luncheon June 13 at 11 a.m.  to raise nearly $300,000 for our job search programs. During the event Tom Wilson, president and CEO of Olympia Entertainment, praised JVS for its workforce development initiatives and spoke about The District Detroit, Olympia's latest venture and the largest residential development project in the city for more than 20 years. 

Other highlights of the event included honoring Ken Eisenberg of Kenwal Steel for their 20 years of support as the lead event sponsors and recognizing imageOne with the Business Leadership Award and hearing the inspiring stories of three people who overcame employment struggles with the help of JVS.  See how they found success »

We thank all of the generous businesses and individuals who supported the event to make our 20th Strictly Business an anniversary and afternoon to remember!
