Each year, in communities across the country, dynamic, passionate candidates engage in a spirited competition to earn The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's "Man & Woman of the Year" titles, by raising funds for blood cancer research. The candidates compete in honor of children who are local blood cancer survivors, the Boy & Girl of the Year. Every dollar counts as one vote and the titles are awarded to the man and woman with the most votes at the end of ten weeks; the top local fundraisers in the country win the national titles.
The 2013 Illinois Man & Woman of the Year will be announced at the Grand Finale on May 17, 2013 at the Fairmont Chicago, Millennium Park. The achievements of all candidates will be celebrated at this gala event, which will include live and silent auctions, cocktails, dinner and entertainment.
