Gene Phillips was the oldest of five boys and is now the father of seven children. Being the patriarch of a large family, he is a strong believer in assisting organizations that support family and child development.
He is heavily involved in supporting the Hockaday Academy in Dallas and has given $1 million to the Hockaday Tomorrow Capital Campaign to renovate the middle and upper school classroom buildings. The renovation is in the final phases, and it is Gene's hope that his family's gift will inspire additional support for this and future projects.
Additionally, Gene actively supports the Lamplighter School and The Crystal Charity Ball. Since 1952, the sole purpose of The Crystal Charity Ball has been to aid, support and make contributions to children's charities in Dallas County. Members of The Crystal Charity Ball Committee have raised more than $82 million for more than 94 worthy beneficiaries over the past 56 years.
Gene and his wife, Roxanne, also donate their time and resources to many community and child development programs such as the Dallas Arboretum, the ChildCareGroup, the Fellowship Church, the Salvation Army and the Boy Scouts of America.
