Phight to End ALS

Strike out ALS with the Phillies at the Annual Phillies Phestival on Monday, June 22 at Citizens Bank Park at 5:00 p.m.

Since 1984 the Phillies have raised $10.2 million with the Greater Philadelphia Chapter to fight the fatal disease, Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS).

ALS is a neuromuscular disorder where “certain nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord slowly die. These nerve cells are called motor neurons and they control the muscles that allow you to move parts of your body,” WebMD explains.

People diagnosed with the disease progressively become disabled. How quickly the disease debilitates a person is different with every case.

Unfortunately, there is no cure for ALS and the Phillies are trying to send the disease back to the dugout. Last year alone the Phillies raised over $758,000.

This year the Phestival should be better then ever, considering the Phillies are the defending World Series Champs.

At the event there will be a ton of Phillies memorabilia and autographed goodies--Meaning you could own a little piece of the 2008 champs.

You will have the opportunity to meet the entire team, which includes more then just the players--Coaches, broadcasters and the Phillies Ballgirls will be there, too.

For $30 you can take a picture with the 2008 and 1980 World Series Trophy. That picture would be one impressive wall ornament.

You could also get your hands on grab bags with autographed pieces, used jerseys and equipment.

Join the team for a live auction that begins at 8 p.m. Bring a lot of cash for this event, because people will be fighting to the end to get their hands on a 1980 and 2008 World Champion Phillies autographed baseball set, Cole Hamels’ and Ryan Howard’s 2008 autographed game-used jerseys, the 100th Anniversary Harley Davidson autographed by the 2009 Phillies team and much more.

There is also a silent auction from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. with over 100 items up for bidding.

Just know, yf you are just hopping on the bandwagon for this event, you will not be able to go to the autograph stations or take pictures with Brad Lidge, Shane Victorino, and Charlie Manuel in the photo booth because they are sold out.

To purchase admission-only tickets visit the Phillies website or call 215-463-1000.

Admission is $10 (no autographs), kids admission is $5 (ages 3-10, no autographs included), auction only package is $20, which includes admission and the ability to take part in the live auction, and the live auction registration is $10.

So come and join the Phillies' phight to find a cure for ALS.
