The Greater Broward Pap Corp was presented with a generous check from a local organization at their sold-out Super Bowl Tailgate Party.

On Friday evening, the Parkland nonprofit Not My Daughter…find a cure now! presented a check for $30,000 towards cancer research. Since their inception in 2010, has donated 100 percent of their proceeds to breast cancer research-based organizations.

The Pap Corps, Champions for Cancer Research is one of the largest, grassroots fundraising organizations in South Florida with more than 50 chapters and 21,000 members, all dedicated to supporting research for all types of cancer at Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center. 

The event, which included Broward County Commissioner Michael Udine and Parkland Mayor Christine Hunschofsky, featured a barbecue dinner and open bar for the over 100 in attendance.
