The inaugural fishing tournament took place at Mott’s Channel Seafood in October of 2016. Family and friends of Mandie Phillips coordinated the three-day event.  Before she passed in 2014, Mandie was a beloved employee at Mott’s and a senior at Appalachian State, majoring in political science with a minor in physics.

Sponsors, donors and volunteers came together to help bring in gross proceeds of approximately $45,000.

The proceeds of the tournament helped to fund an initial endowment of $25,000 with the goal of creating a lasting legacy in Mandie’s name as well as benefiting generations of students for years to come.

The second annual Mandie Phillips Memorial Fishing Tournament will take place September 28-30th, 2017. It will once again be hosted by Alison and Gene Long at Mott’s Channel Seafood.

One hundred percent of net proceeds of this “Family Friendly” event will go to help local Appalachian State University college students with his/her higher education expenses.

The Amanda Bradley Phillips scholarship at Appalachian State University is recognized as a 501 (c) (3) not for profit organization Federal Tax ID 81-2611798.
