Boca Pointe Chapter
The Boca Pointe Chapter is Created. And so it began…
Paula Robbins, was a guest of her aunt Miriam in early 1998 at the Huntington Lakes ‘unit’ (today called chapter) of The Papanicolaou Annual Donor Luncheon.
She heard a whisper from her aunt suggesting that she might think about starting her own group at Boca Pointe. “You must have been reading my mind,” said Paula.
Hearing that faint whisper, she went right to work. The first meeting was held on October 6, 1998 in the meeting room at Promenade at Boca Pointe. Paula Robbins is the founder of The Boca Pointe Chapter of The Pap Corps, Champions for Cancer Research.
Today, the Boca Pointe Chapter includes more than 700 dedicated members, men and women, and has raised more than 2 million dollars in the 21 years of its existence without spending a dime more than necessary on expenses. There are not many organizations that can make that claim!
Over the years, we have asked all our members for contributions and they never let us down. We thank you for your ongoing support and all the donations you have made to fight this awful disease.

What a Great Day for A Walk
By Rayna Becker
And indeed it was. On Saturday, December 11th, The Boca Pointe Chapter of the Pap Corps met at The Club at Boca Pointe. Over 100 people wearing their Pap logo shirts gathered before beginning the Walk, signed in, picked up bottles of water and snacks and posed for a fabulous photo, on this page.
Many thanks to Ann and Bruce Rhodes for sponsoring our walk and especially to The Rhodes Group of Raymond James©, for our shirts and to Claire Taylor for our hats and to Felice Rosen for asking REMLAN Human Resource Associates for underwriting a portion of the Walk.
Once again Ann was chair of this event, and it was so successful we may have to name her Lifetime Chair of our Walk-A-Thons!
Our sincere thanks to Ann for a great turn out and a great event. This year Ann and her committee held two sign-up days outside the Sports Center and encouraged all those who arrived or left to sign up for the event. And it worked.
All the monies raised will be donated to Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center in Miami.
See you next year.
