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 or contact Michelle Flatley at 415.625.1133 or for more information.
