Man & Woman of the Year is a philanthropic competition to support blood cancer research among a group of motivated and dedicated individuals in communities across the United States. Candidates form powerful fundraising teams to compete in honor of two local children who are blood cancer survivors.
The man and woman who have raised the most funds during the ten-week campaign are awarded the prestigious title of Man or Woman of the Year in their community. Locally here in Savannah, Georgia Heritage FCU was enlisted by one of our members to be a part a team to raise money for two local children.
Georgia Heritage FCU volunteers raised $1600 to donate to the, “Leukemia and Lymphoma Society’s Fighting Blood Cancer Campaign.” The initial goal was $1000. That means we exceeded our goal by $600! The total amount consisted of donations from the blood drop cards drive, candy bar sales, and a Lathrop Branch barbeque sale. We thank everyone who supported us for their hard work, donations, and encouragement.
