New Jersey Man & Woman of the Year

The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Man & Woman of the Year campaign began in 1990 in San Francisco to honor John Spencer, a valued employee at Hastings Clothier in San Francisco and a Society volunteer. Spencer died of leukemia at the age of 39. It was in John's memory that Hastings began supporting the Society's Northern California Chapter with the San Francisco Man & Woman of the Year event. Now, more than 40 Man & Woman of the Year campaigns occur across the nation, making this a highly visible fundraising program.

Campaign 2015
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 2015 campaign will start with a Kick Off Celebration on Tuesday, March 10, 2015. The fundraising competition will culminate with a celebration of everyone's efforts at the Grand Finale Gala on Thursday, May 21, 2015.

We are currently accepting candidate nominations for our 2015 Man & Woman of the Year Campaign. Please contact Gina Murdoch at (908) 956-6617 for more information.
