Welcome to the Lafayette Man & Woman of the Year Campaign! This campaign was brought to Acadiana in 2002 by Dr. Ray and Mrs. Barbara Authement in memory of their daughter, Kathy, who lost her battle with blood cancer in 1999.

 Since that first year, over $3.4 million has been raised right here in Acadiana for blood cancer research and patient services! 

Every year, community leaders accept their nomination to be a part of this 10 week fundraising competition, and every year the generosity of our community is evident.  Our 2017 campaign was a huge success, raising over $283,000 in the course of 10 weeks! 

We are excited about our prospective candidates for 2018.  Each year this campaign grows with the help of community leaders like yourself.  THANK YOU ACADIANA!
