Announcing the 2011 LLS Man & Woman of the Year!

This past Saturday, our eleven amazing Man & Woman of the Year candidates “stacked the deck against cancer” at the 21st annual Man & Woman of the Year Grand Finale celebration. Together these driven philanthropists raised $315,000 for blood cancer research and patient services!

And, drum roll please. The winners are…

Mark Zafra and Rosemary Gong!

Mark and his Mission4Remission team raised an incredible $105,000! Rosemary and her Auntie Lao’s Fan Club team raised an equally stellar $50,000! Both Mark and Rosemary are leukemia survivors and will have an LLS-funded researcher named in their honor.

Congratulations to all of our candidates including close runners-up John Caine and Monika Sola. Thank you to all of our sponsors and supporters for making this year’s campaign possible.

We hope you will join us in 2012! Visit www.mwoy.org/sf or contact Michelle Flatley at 415.625.1133 or Michelle.Flatley@LLS.org for more information.
