Palm Beach Area Man & Woman of the Year Campaign

Alexander Basse and Jessica Johnson win coveted titles in annual fundraising competition.

 

(West Palm Beach, FL,  -  The Palm Beach Area chapter of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) celebrated its record breaking 25th Anniversary of the Man & Woman of the Year fundraising campaign on Friday, May 19th at the Hilton, West Palm Beach. The campaign raised over $1.2 million for blood cancer research, patient access and advocacy efforts. Tiffany Kenney and Todd McDermott, co-anchors from Media Sponsor WPBF-25 News, emceed the Grand Finalé which attracted over 445 supporters who cheered on their favorite candidates. The Grand Finalé marked the end of the candidate’s 10 week fundraising campaigns which were dedicated to LLS's vision of a world without blood cancer.

The exciting group of 21 candidates who were nominated based on their leadership excellence and passion for community service, collectively raised funds to save and improve the lives of individuals with blood cancers including leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin's disease and myeloma. Alexander Basse, raised an astounding and record breaking $321,000 and was named the Man of the Year; Jessica Johnson raised another record breaking $295,000 and was named Woman of the Year. The Man & Woman of the Year Runners-Up were Anthony Guadagnino, Fidelity Investments and Ali Goethel, Merrill Lynch. In addition, Jonathan Duerr, Fite Group, Luxury Homes, ran as the Palm Beach Area’s first male ALL STAR Candidate, raising over $87,000. The ALL STAR candidates compete nationally for the coveted ALL STAR title.

Below is the list of the Palm Beach Area candidates, several of whom have been touched by blood cancer, who worked with great innovation and dedication to raise funds for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.

"We are so proud to have had these amazingly talented leaders raise funds to champion our cause," said Pamela Payne, LLS Executive Director. "We applaud all of their efforts to help pave the way for new and improved therapies that will benefit generations to come."

During the ten-week fundraising period beginning with the kickoff celebration, the candidates were judged solely on their success in generating funds to advance the mission of LLS.  Every dollar raised counts as one “vote.” The candidates compete in honor of LLS’s Boy & Girl of the Year, local children who are leukemia survivors and sources of inspiration to others. Eleven year old Beckett and five year old Veta were honored this year. 

Sponsors of the 2017 Palm Beach Area Man & Woman of the Year Grand Finalé included Florida Cancer Specialists, Tito’s Handmade Vodka, Northwestern Mutual, Barnhart, Raymond James, WPBF 25 News, Jupiter Magazine, Boca Life Magazine and The Palm Beacher Magazine.

All proceeds from Man & Woman of the Year will benefit the LLS mission to cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin’s disease and myeloma, and improve the quality of life of patients and their families. While this event raises funds for lifesaving blood cancer research, it will also help support our local patients and their families by providing critically-needed financial aid.
