The Man & Woman of the Year campaign is a fundraising competition among individuals in the community who, through their participation, vie for the honor of being named Man or Woman of the Year. Candidates are judged solely on a philanthropic basis. The individual man and woman who each raises the most funds during the 10-week campaign period will be awarded the title at the Grand Finale Gala.
