The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society Wisconsin Chapter Announces 2012 Milwaukee Man & Woman of the Year

June 13, 2012

Brookfield, Wis. – The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s (LLS) Milwaukee Man & Woman of the Year Campaign (MWOY) generated over $160,000 in 10-weeks for vital blood cancer research and patient services.

Two local residents raised the most funding for blood cancer research, awarding them the titles of 2012 Milwaukee Man & Woman of the Year.
Man of the Year: Daniel Einhorn, Capital Midwest Fund, Milwaukee, WI
Woman of the Year: Anna Zuckerman, AC Zuckerman Jewelers, Inc., Mequon, WI

The fundraising results were announced at the annual Grand Finale Gala held on June 8, 2012 at The Pfister Hotel, Milwaukee.

The MWOY campaign is a fundraising competition in communities across the U.S. in which participants vie for the title of Man & Woman of the Year. The male and female candidates who raise the most funds are awarded the titles by their local LLS chapter.

MWOY helps raise funds that benefit the research efforts of LLS to continue seeking cures and to improve therapies as well as provide support for patients so that they have the best possible outcomes throughout their cancer experience.

LLS is the fastest growing national voluntary health organization dedicated to prevent blood cancers including leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin’s disease and myeloma in the U.S.

“We congratulate all of the 2012 Man & Woman of the Year candidates. Each of them used their passion and determination to raise funds that give thousands of people battling blood cancers the chance to live better, longer lives. They are all champions,” said Ann Marie Frakes, Executive Director of the Wisconsin Chapter.
