The Live SunSmart Foundation, formerly the Ray Festa Melanoma Foundation, was founded as a tribute to Ray Festa whose name means “Sun Party”! The Foundation seeks to promote healthy fun in the sun while raising awareness of skin cancer in order to save lives.


Skin cancer does not discriminate against color, race, ethnicity, age or gender. By changing your habits today, you will impact your health for the better and maintain your beauty longer.

Montclair High School and Nutley High School will play on October 2nd in honor of Mike Geltrude and Ray Festa who competed in 1956 and now their families have teamed up to help save lives. Both teams will wear orange ribbons on their helmets, orange shoe laces and cheerleaders will wear orange ribbons to raise skin cancer awareness.
