Paul GreenwoodKeynote Speaker
Deputy District Attorney Paul Greenwood has been practicing law for thirty eight years. Since starting the Elder Abuse Prosecution Unit of the San Diego Prosecutor’s Office in January 1996, he has been involved in the prosecution of over six hundred felony elder abuse cases. He has completed ten elder abuse murder trials and obtained a first-degree murder conviction in nine of the ten. He was the recipient of the National Adult Protective Services Award in November of 2010 for “collaboration & leadership in the prosecutorial field.”
This presentation about the Success After Financial Exploitation (SAFE) program will follow Paul Greenwood’s discussion. Participants will learn more about the critical research on decision-making conducted by Dr. Peter Lichtenberg, Director of Wayne State University, Institute of Gerontology. The Success After Financial Exploitation (SAFE) program was created to help older adults combat scams and identity theft. Click the link below to learn more.
Professionals from banking, prosecution, health, and social work fields will be on hand for a moderated discussion about the issues raised throughout the summit. This is a great opportunity to not only get answers to questions, but also to consider the impact of an interdisciplinary approach to the devastating effects of financial exploitation of elders.
On Sunday, October 2, Catholic Social Services of Washtenaw County (CSSW) hosted Cooking for a Cause, where chefs from local restaurants competed for the title of “Top Chef”. The over 150 event attendees voted through tips to select their favorite team, with all proceeds supporting the programs and services of CSSW.
Chefs from Frita Batidos, Gratzi, Real Seafood Company, Moveable Feast, Silvio’s, Tavolina Catering & Events, Travis Pointe Country Club, and Zingerman’s Roadhouse impressed the crowd with delectable small plates prepared on site. The grand prize went to Travis Pointe Country Club for their Oysters Rockefeller and Shrimp Shooters, with Moveable Feast’s Himalayan Hibachi Grill coming in as Runner Up. Guests also enjoyed a beer tasting provided by Wolverine State Brewing Company, a raffle, live auction and live music. The big winner of the evening was Paul Leighton, who walked away with a one-week Mexican Getaway, including $500 toward airfare from Conlin Travel.
CSSW would like to extend its gratitude to event chairs Al Mumby and Margot Devine-Mumby, as well as all of the sponsors, volunteers and guests that made this event possible. Your support raised $63,000 to improve the lives of the most vulnerable citizens in Washtenaw County.
