The National Capital Area Chapter
Man & Woman of the Year Campaign


Each year, in communities across the country, dynamic, passionate candidates engage in a spirited ten-week fundraising competition to earn The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's "Man & Woman of the Year" titles, by raising funds for blood cancer research. Our exciting 2017 campaign will begin with a Kick Off Celebration on Thursday, March 23, 2017. The fundraising competition will culminate with a celebration of everyone's efforts at the black-tie Grand Finale Gala on Saturday, June 3, 2017 at the Marriott Marquis, Washington, DC.
