As a major Ovarian Cancer Australia sponsor, Noel Jones Real Estate will ‘turn teal’ during the month of February in an effort to raise funds and awareness of this disease that affects over 1,600 Australian women every year.
During the month of February staff will wear teal coloured attire, hold Afternoon Teal fundraisers in each office, raise awareness via social media channels and open for inspections, and for the first time select staff members will participate in the ‘Walk With Me’ walk that will take place from Lilydale to Warburton via the Warburton Trail on Sunday 25 February 2018. If you would like to sponsor the team visit the Noel Jones Walk With Me Team page to donate.
The partnership between Noel Jones and Ovarian Cancer Australia began after Noel Jones employee Miranda Bailey lost her mother Bev to the disease in February 2012. A key component of our commitment to Ovarian Cancer Australia is a monetary donation from every house sold through a Noel Jones office. Additional donations are collected via fundraiser events and collection tins. By November 2017 Noel Jones had donated over $215,000 which has been put toward raising awareness of the disease, research and support for women who have been diagnosed with the disease.
