This year, the Phillies will hold their Phillies Phestival benefiting the ALS Association, Greater Philadelphia Chapter on Thursday, July 26. Since 1984, the Phillies have raised over $12 million to combat the progressive neuromuscular disorder, known as “Lou Gehrig’s Disease”. Most of the money has been raised through this annual event which features your favorite Phillies in autograph and photo booths, games for kids, memorabilia auctions and lots of yummy food. To thank fans who support this worthy cause, Phillies Nation will be sponsoring the event through an ad in the event program. The ad will offer a special prize to attendees who visit the secret URL displayed. It’s just a small token of thanks to those Phillies fans who like to get involved with helping others. You can find more information about the Phillies Phestival on our Facebook page as well as additional information on the Phillies Nation Foundation which supports the causes of Phillies fans around the world.
