Fol­low the leader: Pap Corps Lead­er­ship Con­fer­ence

Sun Sentinel Palm Beach Edition - Society Scene - Palm Beach - - On The Scene -

More than 300 ex­ec­u­tive of­fi­cers and pres­i­dents from the Corps’ 49 Units in Palm Beach, Broward and Mi­ami-Dade coun­ties at­tended the an­nual Pap Corps Lead­er­ship Con­fer­ence on Oc­to­ber 23.

The event was held at the Em­bassy Suites in Boca Ra­ton. Sem­i­nars in­cluded mar­ket­ing, com­mu­ni­ca­tions, fundrais­ing, and lead­er­ship train­ing. Work­shop leaders pre­sented fundrais­ing ideas and pro­grams for the com­ing year and en­cour­aged at­ten­dees to ex­change tech­niques they found suc­cess­ful.

Dur­ing the 2007-2008 fundrais­ing year, the Corps’ 19,000 mem­bers raised more than $4.15 mil­lion for can­cer re­search at Sylvester Com­pre­hen­sive Can­cer Cen­ter. A check for that amount was pre­sented to Dr. Jarred Good­win, di­rec­tor of the Sylvester Com­pre­hen­sive Can­cer Cen­ter at the May 2008 lun­cheon held at the Boca Ra­ton Re­sort & Club.

Since its in­cep­tion in 1952, this grass roots or­ga­ni­za­tion has raised more than $70 mil­lion for can­cer re­search. The mem­bers are pas­sion­ately com­mit­ted to rais­ing funds in sup­port of ef­fec­tive treat­ments for all types of can­cer and, ul­ti­mately, eradication of the dis­ease.

The women and men of the Pap Corps take pride in the fact that 99.1% of all money raised goes di­rectly to can­cer re­search and treat­ment. Pap Corps Pres­i­dent Tut­sie Lip­kin told Unit pres­i­dents, “With the sup­port of each and ev­ery mem­ber in your Units, we can take the Corps to new lev­els of achieve­ment. In terms of what can be ac­com­plished, the sky’s the limit!”
