Leukemia & Lymphoma Society Man & Woman Kick Off Party with Kristy Sevag, Beth Minkus & Will Rockafellow

The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society® (LLS)  held a Winter Social for their Man & Woman of the Year campaign on January 22, 2015 at the Sonesta Hotel in Center City Philadelphia. The fun-filled
evening included current and past Man & Woman of the Year candidates and high-level volunteers.

2015 Man of the Year candidate, Jay Michael, with Leadership committee
members, Nina Bernstein and Sherry Litwer, and Executive Director, Ellen
Rubesin
and Director of Marketing, Gregory R. Seitter

Agreeing to utilize their leadership abilities to conduct their own fundraising campaign
for LLS, the Man & Woman of the Year candidates compete in honor of a local boy and girl who care blood cancer survivors to raise the most funds for blood cancer research. Every dollar counts as one vote and the titles are awarded to the man and woman with the most votes at the end of the 10-week campaign. The top local fundraisers in the country win the national titles. It kinda reminds me of Celebrity Apprentice as each Man and Women is responsible to raise as much money as possible in order to win, by any means possible, sponsorships, their own fundraisers, one year someone even had a bake sale. It’s hard and it’s not for everyone as you have to being a shaker and find ways to raise money.
