Hargrove Teammate Wins 2016 LLS Woman of the Year
Jun 21, 2016
The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society Man & Woman of the Year (MWOY) grand finale was held June 9, 2016, at Azalea Manor in downtown Mobile, Alabama. After an evening of live auctions, Vicki Studstill, vice president of business development for Hargrove Engineers + Constructors, was named the local Woman of the Year, raising more than $41,000 for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.
Hargrove’s team accounted for almost a quarter of the total amount raised by the Alabama/Gulf Coast LLS division in 2016. In the four years that Hargrove has participated in the MWOY campaign, they have raised nearly $190,000 for leukemia and lymphoma research. Those competitions, collectively, have amassed approximately three-quarters of a million dollars for research and patient services.
“I am honored to have been a part of this year’s Leukemia and Lymphoma Society effort,” shared Studstill. “It is such a worthy cause and I couldn’t be more thrilled to stand alongside three previous Men of the Year winners from Hargrove, one of whom is a leukemia survivor, as Woman of the Year.”
Hargrove is grateful to the community for supporting their efforts and extends congratulations to all Man and Woman of the Year participants.
The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society MWOY campaign is a national fundraising competition occurring in many local communities across the United States between March and June. Raising funds for LLS blood cancer research, the candidates compete in honor of children who are local blood cancer survivors, the Boy & Girl of the Year. Every dollar raised counts as one vote and the titles are awarded to the man and woman with the most votes at the end of 10 weeks.
