JILL FRANK AND KIMBERLY EBERL, TWO ‘WOMEN ON THE MOVE,’ TO BE HONORED AT NATIONAL MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS SOCIETY ANNUAL LUNCHEON
Tenth-year annual event raises proceeds to benefit statewide MS research and programs
CHICAGO (XX) – The National Multiple Sclerosis Society of Greater Illinois is proud to announce that it has named two outstanding ladies in the Chicago community to be honored at this year’s tenth annual Women on the Move Luncheon. Former Senior Supervising Producer at Harpo Studios, Jill Frank, currently the Executive Producer and Head of Content Production at Epsilon, will serve as the event’s honoree, while CEO and Founder Kimberly Eberl of Motion PR will serve as its honorary chair. The luncheon will take place Friday, May 11, from 10:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., at the Hyatt Regency Chicago (151 E Upper Wacker Dr.).
This year’s honoree, Jill Frank, was diagnosed with MS in 2011. Frank, an award-winning television producer, currently leads the content production team at Epsilon Agency, managing, writing and producing video content across various platforms. For a decade, Frank was part of the legendary team at Harpo Studios, where she wrote and produced dynamic on-air promos, integrated marketing and branded entertainment content for The Oprah Winfrey Show and OWN: The Oprah Winfrey Network. For the 2017 Women on the Move Luncheon, Frank volunteered and produced the video for the event.
“I’m humbled and excited to be this year’s honoree,” Frank says of her participation in this year’s Women on the Move event. “I am fortunate to be living well with MS and I hope to shine a light on the 2.3 million people worldwide who fight the effects of this disease every day.”
Leading the fundraising efforts for Women on the Move is this year’s honorary chair, Kimberly Eberl, whose father, Paul Eberl, was diagnosed with MS in the early 80’s. Eberl, the CEO and founder of Motion PR, has over 20 years of award-winning public relations experience. Over the years, Eberl has been involved with the MS Society and its events.
“I look forward to working with the MS Society to honor Jill Frank,” said Eberl. “I hope the 10th annual event is another step towards ending MS forever.”
The Women on the Move event began in 2008 out of the fact that women are two to three times more likely than men to be diagnosed with MS. This annual event brings awareness and celebrates the achievements and generosity of Chicago area community and business leaders, while honoring influential women for their dedication to raising funds to end MS forever.
