A few weeks ago JCC PresenTense Chicago, in partnership with Sidney N. Shure Kehilla and Birthright Israel Next asked if I would speak at their social innovation night that celebrates social entrepreneurship in Jewish Chicago.
On January 24th from 7-9pm I will be sharing my journey with cancer and discuss how this experience led to my emerging venture Twist Out Cancer. During this discussion I will open up about the mission and objectives of the organization and discuss ways for the community to get involved.
This event is open to JCC PresenTense Chicago fellows and the general public.
What: Social innovation nights showcase young Jewish social innovators who are inspired to fight a societal ill or meet a community need by launching a social enterprise.
When: Tuesday, Jan 24, 2012 from 7 to 9pm.
Where: Birthright Israel Next Loft @ 1440 N. Dayton
Cost: $2.48, which will be donated to a different charity each month. There is no need to register in advance.
For Chicago based readers- I look forward to seeing you on January 24th!
