On March 24, 2016, we lost our dear friend, Paula Pianta, after her courageous battle with pancreatic cancer.
Paula was an amazing woman, always smiling. She had incredible energy and used that energy to help others. A successful business woman and leader, she will be dearly missed by her colleagues, her many friends and family; husband Tony and son Anthony.
Even as her disease progressed, she maintained a happy and positive outlook, never giving any indication anything was wrong. She was an inspiration and role model to all of us who knew her.
Paula supported the Scholarship Fund and the young people we serve for many years. First, as a volunteer on our Cowboy Ball Committee. Then as a dancer in our 2014 Boca’s Ballroom Battle where she took home the Mirror Ball Trophy as the top female fund-raiser. In 2015, she went on to chair Ballroom Battle. She took on this challenge even after being diagnosed with cancer. Through her leadership, that event broke all fundraising records.
Paula lived her life to the fullest by always accepting any challenge she was given with the confidence that she would come out on top. It is hard to believe that she is no longer with us, but we are better people because of our time with her. She lived a life well lived.
We miss you Paula….
