In July, the Beta Alpha Pi chapter of Beta Pi Sorority, a local nonacademic 501(c)(3) charitable organization, presented Dr. Alvaro Montiero of the Moffitt Cancer Center Research Institute with a grant check in the amount of $54,255 to be used for cancer research.

Money raised from all chapters totaled $325,530, which was distributed to Montiero and five other doctors working in the field of cancer research.

Beta Alpha Pi is planning an October golf tournament at East Lake Woodlands Country Club. All proceeds will be donated toward cancer research.
