Pettit Kohn Attorney Raises over $20,000 for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society

We would like to congratulate Mark Bloom for all his efforts towards his campaign for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s Man of the Year 2010 title. The winners of the Man and Woman of the Year were announced at the Grand Finale held in The Music Box at the Henry Fonda Theater on April 10, 2010. The group of 11 (5 men and 6 women) raised over $350,000, with Mark individually raising over $20,000. All money raised benefits The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society programs, including research, patient services, advocacy, public and professional education, and community services.

The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s Man & Woman of the Year (MWOY) campaign is a fundraising competition in communities across the U.S. in which participants vie for the title of Man or Woman of the Year. They raise funds for blood cancer research in honor of local children who are blood cancer survivors, the Boy & Girl of the Year. The titles are awarded to the men and women in each community who raise the most funds during the ten-week campaign; the top local fundraisers in the country also win the national titles.
