ATLANTA (CBS46) -

Several of Metro-Atlanta's business professionals are competing for a big title and special cause.

The Man and Woman of the Year Campaign kicked off Wednesday night at the Buckhead Theatre. It's part of the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society's effort to raise money for blood cancer research.

"Men and women from all walks of life, from all sorts of motivation and inspiration, are committed to raising $625,000 in just 10 short weeks," said campaign chairwoman, Cynthia Alford.

Eighteen people are competing in the fundraising challenge.

The Man and Woman of the Year will be announced at the Grand Finale Gala Saturday, June 14, at the Loews Atlanta Hotel. The winners will represent the local region in the national competition.
