10 CSRA residents compete for 'Man & Woman of the Year'

AUGUSTA, GA (WFXG) - Ten CSRA residents are competing in the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Man & Woman of the Year campaign.

The candidates will be raising money for the Georgia chapter of the society, which provides financial and emotional support to people diagnosed with blood cancers throughout the state.

Every dollar each candidate raises counts as one vote. The man and woman with the most votes will be awarded the titles of "2014 Man of the Year" and "2014 Woman of the Year."

To view the candidates or donate to them, visit the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's website.

The campaign, in its third year, hopes to raise $250,000.

More than 200 people are expected to attend the Grand Finale Celebration at the Legends Club on May 30. The night will begin with a silent auction and reception, followed by the event program and dinner.
