Phil-Phest 2017 “A Benefit by the Beach”
Each spring, The Philip A. Bryant Melanoma Foundation has made the commitment to host its signature fundraising event, “Phil-Phest,” in loving memory of Phil Bryant. Phil passed away September 7, 2006 from complications of melanoma, yet his memory lives on through the efforts of Foundation endeavors to educate the public on melanoma awareness. Working in conjunction with the City of Madeira Beach and local corporate vendors, the Foundation will assemble a day long family event on Saturday, April 1st, 2017 at Remember Our Children (R.O.C.) Park in Madeira Beach. Phil Phest will provide the public with free skin screening, health education, along with live entertainment, food and family fun. This past March, nearly 300 persons were screened by local physicians. Since its inaugural celebration in June of 2007, our event has continued to grow in attendance and donation revenue that provides for post-secondary scholarship funding and an annual gift to the Moffitt Cancer Institute.
