Pap Corps names new CEO

An established South Florida nonprofit recently named a new CEO.

Sally Berenzweig was recently named the new nonprofit of The Pap Corps. The co-founder and former CEO of KidSafe Foundation will use her 14 years of nonprofit expertise to expand The Pap Corps’ fundraising base, develop new partnerships, increase membership, raise awareness through social media campaigns and explore grant opportunities.

The 68-year-old nonprofit’s 22,000 members throughout the tri-county area have raised more than $110 million to Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine, South Florida’s only NCI-Designated cancer center. In addition, its $50 million pledge in 2016 dedicated the Pap Corps Campus at Sylvester at Deerfield Beach.

“The Pap Corps is an organization that I have a very strong connection with,” said Berenzweig. “My late stepmother (bonus Mom), Bobbi Friedman, was the founder of the Woodfield Country Club chapter and helped raise funds to bring Sylvester to Deerfield Beach. My father Aaron Friedman honors Bobbi’s memory annually when he donates to the Woodfield Chapter largest fundraiser the Bobbi Friedman Memorial Card Party. And my mother-in-law, Sandy Berenzweig, is an active member of the Boca Pointe chapter. Through my family, I have witnessed the dedication and commitment Pap Corps members have for this cause, and it’s beyond inspiring. And like so many, I have experienced the heartbreaking loss of too many people I love to cancer. The loss of family and friends fuels my determination to find a cure. For me, the Pap Corp Champions for Cancer Research mission was tailor-made for my skill-set and passion as I launch the next phase of my career.”

Berenzweig, a Boca Raton resident, was recognized for her outstanding leadership of KidSafe Foundation as a 2019 L’Oreal Paris Women of Worth Honoree. Sally also received the distinguished Jefferson Award for Public Service. Berenzweig is also a former psychotherapist who has a master’s in education and a master’s in counseling psychology. She is the co-author of a parenting book, two award-winning children’s books, eLearn trainings and an eight-lesson curriculum for children that has been taught in Palm Beach and Broward County School Districts for over 10 years.

“We are very proud that Sally has joined our organization,” said Susan Dinter, chair of The Pap Corps’ board of directors. “The Board is confident that her extensive experience in the nonprofit realm and her passion for our mission will guide The Pap Corps to the next exciting stage in its evolution.”
