The public is invited to attend with all proceeds going to toward Terri Hall’s Team “FightJerryFight’s goal to honor of her lifelong friend who is currently battling leukemia and undergoing a bone marrow transplant. Each year, the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society has a Man & Woman of the Year Campaign. The campaign is a competition of 12 candidates (6 men and 6 women) who are nominated to see who can raise the most funds in a 10-week time period (April 1 – June 13) to earn the title of Man or Woman or the Year.
“When Ronda Parag, publisher of Tampa Bay Metro Magazine nominated me, I was apprehensive about the stiff competition. I am honored and humbled with the enormous outpouring of support from Susanne Byram, and the amazing team we have assembled to work on the L’Orange for Leukemia event. Jill Plaice, Holly Walker and Lindsay Germann have volunteered their time and worked very hard for the last 2 months to ensure its success. Every dollar counts. It takes a village and this cause is something that’s very personal to me, Each donation will prevent someone from losing a child, sibling or parent or loved one, and allow LLS to continue funding lifesaving research,” said Terri Hall, MWOY Candidate for LLS.
