The public is invited on Sunday to an event at Unique Tan called Bronze for a Cause, a fundraiser for Leukemia and Lymphoma Society Man of the Year nominee Ben Medina.
The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society (LLS) hosts annual nominations and awards for Man and Woman of the Year in their different chapters. Medina is one of 13 nominees in the area.
Unique Tan Owner Sherry Lee Meredith heard about Medina's nomination on Facebook and wanted to help him raise funds for his campaign. She's donating 100% of her proceeds Sunday to his campaign.
"I just want to do anything that we could do to help," Meredith said. "LLS is a wonderful cause. I think he deserves the Man of Year award."
There will also be a raffle. Tickets are $1 and Meredith said patrons should be prepared for some fun prizes.
Medina, a San Clemente resident and owner of Friendly Computers, is excited about his opportunity to raise money for the nonprofit and blood cancer research.
