Grand Finale Stage 

Each year, in communities across the country, a select group of dynamic, passionate individuals engage in a spirited 10-week competition to earn The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's (LLS) "Man & Woman of the Year" titles, by raising funds to support LLS's mission. Every dollar raised equals one vote, and the titles are awarded to the man and woman with the most votes at our Grand Finale Gala.


The candidates compete in honor of the Boy & Girl of the Year, who are local blood cancer survivors. Candidates are from all walks of life, but have a few characteristics in common: a passion for a world without cancer, and a drive to succeed.

The 2014 campaign will launch on Saturday, March 22, 2014 and culminates at the Grand Finale Gala on Saturday, May 31, 2014
at the Skirball Cultural Center's new Guerin Pavilion.
