Last night Hunter Pence held his first charity event. Pence held this event at the historic Moshulu in Philadelphia. His inaugural "Let's Go Eat: Food and Fun Fest" was to help benefit several charities, including Philabundance, and the Make A Wish Foundation in Philadelphia.
Pence and his teammates provided entertainment, along with a ping pong tournament. The guests had a grand selection of food and drinks, entertainment, all for a fantastic cause. Pence has been nothing short of a fan favorite here in Philadelphia, he is a perfect fit for this club and the city.
Hunter tweeted this last night, along with a picture of him and his teammates:
Couldn't have had a better time at my first charity even tonight. Thanks to my teammates for their support.
Here is a video to sum up what Pence's Let's Go Eat: Food and Fun Fest was all about, video courtesy of SportsTalkPhiladelphia (@SportsTalkPhila):

Roy Halladay came to the Philadelphia Philles for 2 of the 3 prized youngsters in the vault. That was in 2010, when they were making noise in the high minors. If they were ready for the 2011 campaign, where are they?

The Chrystal Champagne Toast is a salute to Jonathan Papelbon.
Carlos Ruiz of the Philadelphia Phillies healed for a few days before being penciled into the cleanup spot tonight. Nobody expected his March madness to continue, but he has been stopped occasionally by a banged-up body. How long will he thrive? Who else is still riding high?

Ryan Howard acknowledges this: He won't be stealing bases the way he used to.
In other words, the Philadelphia Phillies' burly slugger thinks he's the same player he was before tearing his left Achilles' tendon.
Howard will begin a rehab stint Thursday night, a day after Chase Utley returned to the Phillies' lineup. The 2006 NL MVP hasn't played since getting...

The rumors of the death of the Philadelphia Phillies are premature. Even with their multitude of injuries and sub-standard play, the returning division champions are still very much alive in the NL East.

Good afternoon Mets fans and welcome to another stupendous day of baseball! Tonight the Mets take on the Phillies in the rubber game of their three game series. For the second time this season, Dillon Gee will take on Cliff Lee in a battle of men with short last names that also happen to rhyme. In the last Gee vs. Lee game, the Phillies lefty was the better starter, but the Mets...
What started out as a great pitchers duel between Dillon Gee and Cliff Lee quickly escalated into a downright mess.
In what was shaping up to be another series win for the Mets against the Phillies was ACOSTA’D by the bullpen, as 5 pitchers gave up a combined 7 runs. Jon Rauch would give up the game winner in the 8th, when after giving up 2 consecutive singles, striking out Ty...
