The 2018 Midlands Man & Woman of the Year

Man & Woman of the Year is philanthropic competition to support blood cancer research among a group of motivated and dedicated individuals in communities across the United States.  Candidates form powerful fundraising teams and compete in honor of two local children who are blood cancer survivors. 

Our exciting 2018 campaign starts with a fun Kick Off event on March 6, 2018.  The fundraising competition will culminate with a celebration of everyone's efforts at the Grand Finale Gala on May 17, 2018 with cocktails, drinks, dancing and a fabulous silent and live auction.  Last year the Midlands campaign raised an amazing $249,000, but this year our goal is $400,000!  Help us make history for a cure!

Congratulations to our 2017 Man & Woman of the Year Winners
