The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society Presents

the 2018 Upstate 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 22, 2018.  The fundraising competition will culminate with a celebration of everyone's efforts at the Grand Finale Gala on May 31, 2018 with cocktails, drinks, dancing and a fabulous silent and live auction.  

Congratulations to all 2017 Man & Woman of the Year candidates and team members. We are currently accepting nominations for 2018 candidates. For additional information please contact the local office at 803-731-4060.

Congratulations to our 2017 Man & Woman of the Year Winners
