“Hi, my name is Phil Dawes and I have been a donor and volunteer Board Member with Newton Community Pride since 2018.

My family and I moved  to Newton because of the warm, friendly community, and we were introduced to Newton Community Pride during the annual Newton Heartbreak Hill Road Race. Our older son, Faris, who was seven, participated for the first time. It became an annual tradition. Little did we know that other things we loved to do were also sponsored by NCP, such as KidsFest, 4th of July fireworks and the city wide Spelling Bee. When I was asked to volunteer as a Board Member, I immediately said “Yes!”

I have enjoyed the opportunity to give of my time to NCP and know my donations are fostering a more connected community with family programming we have grown to love and enjoy.”

Phil is an Executive Search Consultant with Spencer Stuart, and he and his wife Nickki, a Professor at Lasell University and two sons Faris and Grant live in Newtonville.
