There will also be thousands of dollars worth of silent auction items. All proceeds from Monte Carlo night go to The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society for research, treatment, and ultimately, a cure for Leukemia, Lymphoma and Myelomas.
Gourmet appetizers, casino-style fun, open bar… what more could you ask for? For guests listening pleasure, the Bay Area’s own Super Diamond, a famous Neil Diamond Tribute Band and Livewire, a high-energy 6-piece dance cover band, will entertain with their funky tunes. DJ Aykut will spin his internationally famous tunes all night. In addition, there will also be a special performance by Beach Blanket Babylon.
For the past nine years, Monte Carlo Night has been a benefit party for the Leukemia & Lymphoma ‘Man and Woman of the Year’ campaign. Candidates compete in their communities by raising funds to provide important patient services and to support vital research for those living with leukemia, Hodgkin and non-Hodgkin lymphoma, and myeloma. Each candidate raises funds during a 10-week campaign. At the campaign’s end, the man and woman raising the most money, $1 per vote, wins the coveted title. This year, Monte Carlo Night is supporting the candidacy of Timothy D. Williamson, an investment banker and photographer living in San Francisco. Previous “Man of the Year” winners, Joe Belluomini and Timothy Farrelly, host the 10th Annual Monte Carlo Night.
The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Man & Woman of the Year campaign began in 1990 in San Francisco to honor John Spencer, a valued employee at Hastings Clothier in San Francisco and a Society volunteer. Spencer died of leukemia at the age of 39. It was in John's memory that Hastings began supporting the Society's Northern California Chapter with the San Francisco Man & Woman of the Year event. Now, more than 40 Man & Woman of the Year campaigns occur across the nation, making this a highly visible fundraising program.
