The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society Presents

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. 

The man and woman who have raised the most funds during the ten-week campaign are awarded the prestigious title of Man or Woman of the Year in their community.  The man and woman who have raised the most across the entire US will be recognized as the national Man & Woman of the year.

Our exciting 2019 campaign will begin with a fun Kickoff Party on Thursday, March 07, 2019.  The campaign will culminate with candidates and their guests joining sponsors and other prominent community members at the Grand Finale celebration on Saturday, May 18, 2019, which includes silent and live auctions, food, cocktails and music.  

Congratulations to all 2018 Man & Woman of the Year candidates and team members. Last year our local candidates raised an amazing $412,958, but this year our goal is to raise $500,000!  Help us make history for a cure! 

We are  currently accepting nominations for 2019 candidates. For additional information please contact Pratima Persaud-Banks at (813) 261-3150 or Pratima.PersaudBanks@lls.org.
