Get Ready to Bid! The Phillies Charities, Inc. Phantastic Auction Starts Wednesday

Once in-a-lifetime fan experiences will be up for bid on phillies.com

Want to have a Pete Rose Alumni Weekend experience, play a round of golf with Mike Schmidt, Steve Carlton or John Kruk, take part in a private catching clinic with Cameron Rupp, and more?

Starting Wednesday, May 3, fans are invited to take part in the exclusive 5th Annual Phillies Charities, Inc. Phantastic Auction on phillies.com. This online, 10-day event gives fans nation-wide the chance to bid on once-in-a-lifetime experiences with Phillies players and alumni, trips, memorabilia and many other unique opportunities. The full list can be found below, with full descriptions of experiences at phillies.com/phantasticauction. The Phantastic Auction is held in partnership with SportsRadio 94WIP.

This is no ordinary online auction and the best part: it's all to benefit charity. The net proceeds from The Phantastic Auction will benefit Phillies Charities, Inc., and a portion of those proceeds will be contributed to the Greater Philadelphia Chapter of the ALS Association as part of the Phillies Phestival on May 11, 2017. Last year's Phantastic Auction raised more than $130,000 for Phillies Charities, Inc., which was awarded to charitable organizations across the region.
