And the results are in! Our 2016 Augusta Man & Woman of the Year campaign concluded May 20th at the Grand Finale Gala, held at the Legends Club. Eleven local CSRA community leaders - six men and five women - competed with each other for ten weeks to raise the most money for LLS. In its fifth year, the event raised an incredible $381,021, bringing the campaign's total raised in just five years to nearly $1.4 million!
