Cancer fundraisers will be on soap opera

The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society is holding a fundraising contest with the national winners to get walk-on parts in the soap opera, “Days of Our Lives,” and diamond watches. The 2006 Man, Woman and Celebrity of the Year will be named at a nationals grand finale June 16.

Starting April 18, participants will spend eight weeks earning one vote for every dollar they gather for the cancer research and patient services arm of the society. If they win their state contest, they are eligible for state-level prizes, the national finals and the National Man & Woman of the Year awards. For more information, call the society’s Sacramento chapter at (800) 410-8170.
