In St. Martin Parish, the first annual Phillipfest took place this afternoon to raise awareness for distracted driving.
The foundation is celebrating the life of a little boy who captured the hearts of everyone he met.
Phillip touched those who needed a friend, a smile or just conversation in his nine years of life.
Phillip would have been 10 years old on October 7th.
“This foundation was formed out of a tragic event. But what we’re trying to do is bring awareness to distractive driving and bring about a change for the community so others won’t have to face what Phillip faced.”
