Zausmer Lawyers Attend Women’s Leadership Breakfast in Support of City Year Detroit

More than 350 women gathered at The Colony Club in November to celebrate the 8th Annual Women’s Leadership Breakfast hosted by City Year Detroit.

Among those attending were Zausmer lawyers Amy Applin, Cristy DeVos, Danielle DePriest, Theresa Bodwin, Breanne Patton, and Florianne Silvestri. They joined with City Year professionals to discuss the state of education in the City of Detroit today.

Zausmer is an active supporter of City Year Detroit, a non-profit organization that partners with schools to help bridge the gap by providing diverse, talented and trained young adult tutors, mentors and role models who work alongside teachers to support student success. Zausmer Managing Shareholder Mark Zausmer serves as Board Chair of the organization and the firm recently participated in the organization’s annual Red Jacket Gala at Little Caesars Arena, an event that raised nearly $1.2 million for inner-city Detroit schoolchildren.
