Each year, in communities across the country, dedicated candidates engage in an exciting competition to earn The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS)’s “Man & Woman of the Year” titles. Raising funds for LLS blood cancer research, the candidates compete in honor of children who are local blood cancer survivors, the Boy & Girl of the Year.
The Blue Lagoon Foundation is proud to be a presenting sponsor for the upcoming event. Thank you to our foundation members for your generous hearts!
