Longoria Parker backs cancer charity’s $250,000 prize bid

The Desperate Housewives star is a longterm spokeswoman for PADRES Contra El Cancer and she’s eyeing a cash prise for the organisation.

The charity is just one of many competing for a grant from the Pepsi Refresh Everything initiative – and Longoria Parker is determined to win the money on behalf of the organisation.

In a post on her Facebook.com site, she writes, “OK guys, I need your support in helping kids with cancer! We are competing for a grant from Pepsi for the Padres kids.
