Genie Francis (Genevieve, “The Young and the Restless,” ex-Laura, “General Hospital”) plans to hold a fan event in Winnipeg, Manitoba on March 17, 2012. The event will have limited seating, but a ticket will include admission, breakfast, an autograph session, fun contests, a “Who Wants To Be A Soap Star” event, silent auctions, door prizes, a Q&A session, fan trivia, and three lucky attendees will win a photo op with Genie.

The cost of tickets, $105, does not include airfare, accommodations, or any transportation. To receive more details the contests referred to previously, send an email to with “Event” as the subject line, or visit Genie Francis Association.
