Rub elbows with some of the Philadelphia Phillies’ finest at the annual Phillies Phestival, an evening of autographs and a silent auction all in the name of ALS research at Citizens Bank Park.
Since 1983, the Phillies have raised more than $14.3 million for ALS research. ALS, or Lou Gehrig’s disease, is a neuromuscular condition that affects nerve cells in the spinal cord and brain.
In addition to opportunities to mingle with Phillies players and staff, guests are also invited to take part in an auction featuring items like players’ bats, autographed helmets, Phillies’ photographs, autographed jerseys and more. For the full list of silent auction items, click here.
Beyond player meet-and-greets and the silent auction, guests are also encouraged to try their own hand at the great American pastime with baseball-themed activities in the Phanatic Phun Zone.
Admission-only tickets, which don’t include player autographs, start at $15. From there, tickets increase based on additions like autographs and player photo booths. Tickets are available online.
When: Monday, May 19, 4:30 p.m.
Where: Citizens Bank Park, 1 Citizens Bank Way
Cost: $15 and up
