In addition to chemistry, Phil is involved in the charity organization CASCO. CASCO is a student-run organization comprised of students from the University of Ottawa. For the past 14 years, CASCO has produced an annual gala show, putting the spotlight on the talents of Telfer students. The much anticipated soirée is one comprised of song, dance and fashion, and succeeds in unifying 200 students, 200 business professionals and 200 community members with the common goal of providing support for the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario (CHEO).

Phil is a dancer for the annual CASCO gala and this year the CASCO organization raised $66,530.83 for CHEO which will be going towards a new MRI machine for young children.
