'RESTORE the Brilliance' celebration planned for January 28

It will be a “diamond jubilee” birthday celebration Thursday, Jan. 28, for retired Oakland County Circuit Court Judge Edward Sosnick.

The RESTORE Foundation will host the event on Thursday, Jan. 28, from 5:30-7 p.m. at Eddie Merlot’s restaurant, near the corner of Woodward and Big Beaver in Bloomfield Hills.

Sosnick, who turned 75 last month, served on the Circuit Court bench for 24 years, and is RESTORE’s executive director.  The Foundation exists to assist the county in providing services through its juvenile and adult drug courts. While on the bench, Sosnick presided over the juvenile drug court program.

Frank Simon, a principal at Simon Law Firm, and Gary Sakwa are serving as presenting sponsors of the January 28 event.  The Jaffe law firm also is helping sponsor the event, which will include appetizers and a cash bar.

Suggested minimum donations are $75 and may be obtained through the Foundation by contacting Barb Bloedow at 248-798-8956 or barbbloedow@gmail.com. Proceeds will help support the drug court programs in Oakland County.
