PC Moment: Don’t get in the way of men and women on a heartfelt mission. Just ask anyone who participated in the round of fundraisers hosted by the 16 “Man & Woman of the Year” candidates, each vying for the title by raising the most money for the cause. It was several weeks of intense partying and fundraising culminating in the black-tie gala.

Applause, applause for Woman of the Year Stacy Goldstein of IBERIABANK, who raised a mind-boggling/record-breaking $701,000, and for runner-up Alyssa Parrish-Bublewicz of Partners Surgical, who brought in a remarkable $417,000. And we can’t overlook Man of the Year John McDonough of Cool Springs Financial, who increased the final total with his contribution of $156,000.

Their efforts, combined with those of the other candidates, brought the grand total to a record-breaking $1,875,848, that handsome sum announced by the evening’s emcee Dana Tyson of Sunny 99.1. Sharing in the excitement were gala chairs Stephanie Carroll and Scott Gildea.

Key to the spirit of the event were Boy of the Year Channing Kitzmann and Girl of the Year Bailee Malmgren, both youngsters leukemia survivors.
