Phillies Phestival Raises Over $893K for Fight Against ALS

A live and silent auction of Philadelphia Phillies memorabilia was one of the highlights of the 22nd Annual Phillies Phestival on June 13th. The team hosted the event to raise money to find a cure for amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), also known as Lou Gehrig's Disease.

Other highlights included 23 autograph stations made up of players, coaches and broadcasters, in addition to photo booths with Roy Halladay, Carlos Ruiz and manager Charlie Manuel. The live and silent auctions raised a combined $100,312 and included top items such as:

  • Roy Halladay no-hitter ball from the 2010 NLDS signed by Halladay and catcher, Carlos Ruiz - $4,700
  • Roy Halladay 2010 Game-Used Home Jersey - $4,300
  • 1934 Yankees Baseball (including Gehrig/Gomez) - $4,000
  • Ryan Howard autographed and game-used helmet - $3,000
  • Phillies Cruise Trip for Two - 2012 Phantastic Voyage - $2,900
  • 2008 Phillies Framed World Series Champions Team Photo - $2,400
  • 2011 Phillies autographed baseball - $1,500
  • Ryan Howard autographed game-used St. Patty's Day Jersey - $1,500

Additional money was raised through sales of food/drinks and memorabilia grab bags. Fans could also participate in interactive games.

The event was held at Citizens Bank Park and the record crowd of over 6,800 fans raised $893,033 for the fight against the disease. The Phillies have raised over $12.7 million since they made the fight against ALS their primary charitable endeavor in 1984.
