He makes sure products are installed correctly.

Phil’s charitable work includes the Long Island Home Builders Care – The Charitable Arm of Long Island Business Institute.

“The ability to raise money for charity, as well as my charity – Long Island Home Builders Care – and get into better shape, were incentives for me to volunteer for Fight for Charity.” said Phil.

He first heard about Fight for Charity from Alumni Boxer Grant Havesy. “After seeing Grant perform in the ring, I decided that this was the year for me to train and box in the Main Event. Age 51 is better than 52,” added Phil.

Phil earned his B.A. at SUNY Old Westbury.

He lives in Lake Grove with his wife and two children.
