Phillies Phestival tickets go on sale Tuesday, April 26, 9:00 a.m., at phillies.com or by calling 215-463-1000. The Phillies Phestival is a fun-filled autograph and auction party for all ages, held annually to help strike out ALS, the devastating neuromuscular condition for which there is no known cause or cure.
This year's event will be on Thursday, June 9, at Citizens Bank Park, and feature 2016 players and coaches, a photo booth with the Phillie Phanatic, grab bags with autographed items, and more. There will also be a silent auction including memorabilia from current players, a trip to see the Phillies on the road, an opportunity to announce the Phillies lineup before a game, among others.
Proceeds will benefit the Greater Philadelphia Chapter of the ALS Association, with monies raised providing much-needed patient care and services for ALS patients in the Greater Philadelphia area. Since the Phillies adopted ALS as their primary charity in 1984, more than $16 million has been raised for the fight against the disease.
