Educating the public on the dangers of melanoma cancer and the keys for its prevention was behind a fundraiser held this past weekend for the Katy Ault Phillips Foundation.

A luncheon and silent auction was held at MVP's Sports Bar and Grille in Mansfield.

Emily Turlo is the foundation board's chairwoman who says proceeds from the event will help melanoma patients who need financial assistance and to help raise awareness.

Katy's father, Mansfield Municipal Court Judge Jerry Ault says melanoma is a very deadly cancer and his daughter would be happy they're trying to help others affected.

Modern Woodmen of America are partnering with the foundation and will provide matching funds of up to $2,500 from the fundraiser.
