The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society nominated Sarah Ruane of Wagstaff & Cartmell as one of 25 local men and women to participate and run for the 2009 Man & Woman of the Year.
“We are proud to have Sarah as a 2009 Woman of the Year nominee. Her passion and dedication to the community is inspiring,” said Tom Wagstaff.
“I am honored and excited to be a 2009 Woman of the Year nominee. This is an organization that makes it easy to be passionate about and I look forward to campaigning for a win,” Ruane said.
The 2009 Man & Woman of the Year will be crowned based on their success in generating funds for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society during an eight-week campaign that began on March 10 with a Kick-off Party and will culminate at the Grand Finale Celebration on May 14. The candidates raise money in honor of local blood cancer survivors.
