Let's crush cancer together!

Welcome to Monica Karst's MWOY Fundraising Page!

Mar 21, 2019

I’m very excited to share with you that I am part of the 2019 Man & Woman of the Year campaign. Over the next 10 weeks, I will be working to raise money and awareness for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) and their mission to cure for blood cancers.


It’s an honor to be a part of such an outstanding group of community business leaders and philanthropists, but an even larger honor to be able to work for the patients, survivors and their families.  I am fundraising in honor of my father, Jesus Alvarez, who was taken from us at the age of 43 from Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. 


My goal is to raise $60,000, between March 21 to June 1, 2019. It’s a lofty goal, but I am willing to work hard to reach it. I cannot do it alone, I need your help. There are a few ways you can support my fundraising efforts:


  1. Donate, find the donate button on this page
  2. Share my message & fundraising link with your contacts via email or social media
  3. Donate a silent or live auction item that can be used for the Grand Finale Gala auction
  4. Help me secure a corporate sponsorship
  5. Help me secure a matching gift through your company


Thank you for your generosity and support. Your donation truly makes a difference and with your help, we’re one step closer to a cure for blood cancers.


Please visit my website often and share with you friends who would also like to donate!

On behalf of blood cancer patients everywhere, thank you for your support!
