Supporting The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society

2007 Cincinnati Man and Woman of the Year Candidate
Amy Smythe
The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society
Fundraising Campaign

I have been nominated as a candidate for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s Cincinnati Woman of the Year. I am very excited about this honor and truly feel this is my opportunity to make a difference in the lives of people affected by leukemia, lymphoma and blood cancers throughout our community.

I ask that you join me by making a contribution to my 10 week fundraising campaign. Each dollar I raise counts as one vote and the candidate who gets the most donations is named our local Man or Woman of the Year. I am raising money in memory of my dad, in honor of many other close friends, as well as two local children.

Not only am I looking for donations, but you can also show your support by purchasing tickets to the Grand Celebration on May 11 where the winners will be announced. Additionally, if your company would like to be a sponsor of the Grand Celebration or if you have a live auction or silent auction prize to contribute that will count towards my donation total. Contact me for information on Grand Celebration tickets, sponsorships and auction items.
