Jnetics’ Young Professionals Supper Quiz – Another Huge Success!!

On Saturday 13th January after Shabbat, Jnetics in conjunction with Kinloss our host and partner (Finchley United Synagogue) ran Jnetics 2nd Young Professionals supper quiz, which over 180 Young Professionals attended!

Jnetics Marketing & Events Manager Nicole Levy welcomed guests to the event, and this was followed by a more formal introduction from Jnetics Young Professionals Committee Co-Chair Jasmine Mahgerefteh and young committee member Daniel Lewis Green. Jasmine & Daniel captivated the audience as they spoke about the committee’s involvement within the charity and emphasised the importance of the work Jnetics does within the community in order to save lives with regards to recessive testing and BRCA. In Daniel’s words “Prevention is better than a cure, all you need to do is do a ‘cheeky’ swab test to find out your carrier status and ensure babies are born free from Jewish genetic disorders.”

The quiz consisted of eight rounds on various topics including sports, music, food, and drink, Jewish and Israel Knowledge to name a few and there was a bonus round on Jewish genetic disorders to test guests’ knowledge. This was a great way to see what they had learnt about the charity during the evening. Jnetics also ran a prize raffle consisting of donated prizes including vouchers from Daniel Galvin, Sushi Haven, a hamper fully of goodies, and lots more. The room was buzzing and the atmosphere electric.  Jnetics has received very positive feedback from guests who said they had a wonderful time and that the variety and amount of food was amazing!

Emma Bergen, Jnetics Fundraising Manager, summed up the evening thanking our host Kinloss, Raw Focus Photography, our volunteers, The Jnetics Team, our compere Edward Bergen and to all of our guests for attending. Emma concluded the night by encouraging the audience help us spread the word about the importance of the work we do and to take the test not the risk and come forward to get screened.
