Man, Woman of the Year raise funds for leukemia fight

The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society held its event to announce and honor the winners for The Man and Woman of the Year on June 13 at the Estancia La Jolla Hotel. The Man & Woman of the Year (MWOY) campaign is a spirited fundraising competition in communities across the U.S. in which participants build fundraising teams to compete for the title.

They raise funds for LLS blood cancer research in honor of local children who are blood cancer survivors, the Boy & Girl of the Year. The titles are awarded to the man and woman in each community who raises the most funds during the 10-week campaign; the top local fundraisers in the country also win the national titles. More at
