An Evening with Jill Emberson

  • The Beach Hotel 99 Frederick St Merewether Australia (map)

Following World Ovarian Cancer Day on May 8, we're thrilled to present an evening cocktail style event for you all with the delightful, thought provoking and Newcastle Citizen of the Year, Jill Emberson.

On Wednesday 15 May, we invite you to join the Gen Collective team for an evening with our beautiful friend, Jill Emberson.  In Australia, ovarian cancer is the most under-funded and deadly reproductive cancer.

We will hear from Jill about her own journey with ovarian cancer and how we can all make a difference in fighting this disease.

Gen Collective has joined the  “Paint the Town Teal” Ovarian Cancer Australia. initiative where money raised will directly benefit OCA’s national initiative to increase awareness of ovarian cancer, to support women living with the disease and to increase funds for research.
You and your friends/colleagues can also make donations via the Gen Collective supporter page.

A percentage of all tickets sold will be donated to Stop Ovarian Cancer Hunter (SOC) and all proceeds for our raffle on the night will go to  HMRI and University of Newcastle researcher, Dr Nikola Bowden.
