Jazziz Hosts LLS Man & Woman of the Year Kickoff

 



The Palm Beach Area Chapter of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) launched its 2014 South Palm Beach Man & Woman of the Year fundraising campaign on February 20 at Jazziz at Mizner Park. Zakir Odhwani, LLS Board President, warmly welcomed the enthusiastic crowd of candidates, supporters and honored heroes to this invitation-only event at Jazziz. Chair, Kristina Olsen, was joined by news anchors, Tiffany Kenney and Todd McDermott, from Media Sponsor WPBF-25, as emcees of the Kickoff. Over 50 supporters came out to the Kickoff, which marks the official start of the candidates’ campaigns, to cheer on their favorite candidate and support The Leukemia & Lymphoma’s efforts to eradicate blood cancer.

Nine South Palm Beach area candidates will dedicate ten weeks to cultivating donations for vital blood cancer research and services for patients and their families. The South Palm Beach area candidates’ campaigns will offer an array of opportunities for the community to support LLS's vision of a world without blood cancer. The candidates who raise the most money will be named the South Palm Beach Man & Woman of the Year at the Grand Finale on Friday, May 2 at The Royal Palm Yacht & Country Club. We are proud to announce the 2014 Man & Woman of the Year candidates, several of whom have been touched by blood cancer:

Nancy Stewart Franczak—Festival Management Group, INC

Jonathan Goldfarb—Tennis & Business Consulting Services

CAMPAIGN HONORS TWO YOUNG SURVIVORS

This year's South Palm Beach campaign honors two young and courageous survivors of blood cancer—our Boy & Girl of the Year—Alex, age 17, and Sophia, age 15. Alex was diagnosed with acute lymblastic leukemia in 2012. He is in remission and is excited about a healthy future.  Sophia was diagnosed with acute myeloid leukemia in 2011 at the age of 13. She is in remission and enjoys being outside alongside her younger sister.

In 1960, a child with leukemia had a four percent chance of survival. Advancements in treatment have led to an eighty-five percent survival rate today. However, despite the increased survival rates, the number of leukemia patients has almost doubled and the number of lymphoma patients has tripled since 1975.

PARTY FOR A CURE

The community can support the Man & Woman of the Year campaign by attending events sponsored by the candidates and the exciting Grand Finale. For more information about the calendar of fundraising festivities or to purchase tickets to the Grand Finale, please visit  www.mwoy.org/pb  or call Trina Holmsted, Campaign Specialist, at 561.616.8682 or email trina.holmsted@lls.org.
