Phillies Phestival returns on Monday, July 28
Join the fun and help strike out ALS!
Join the players and their wives, as well as broadcasters, ballgirls and entire Phillies staff, at the annual Phillies Phestival on Monday, July 28, at Citizens Bank Park. This fun-filled autograph and auction party for all ages is held with the goal to strike out ALS, the devastating neuromuscular condition for which there is no known cause or cure. This year's goal is to raise over $800,000 - and all fans are invited to take part in the cause. Gates open at 5 p.m. Parking is free.
The opportunity to meet the entire Phillies team including players, broadcasters, coaches, the Phillie Phanatic and Phillies Ballgirls!
Photo booths [SOLD OUT] with 2007 NL MVP Jimmy Rollins and pitching ace Cole Hamels.
Charlie Manuel Dugout Photo Booth : For $30, fans can also receive a photo taken in the dugout with the manager of the 2007 NL East Champions and also receive a commemorative lineup card.
Plenty of games and prizes including Every Roll's A Winner, Citizens Bank Games of Baseball and Grab Bags with autographed items, used jerseys, equipment and other surprises!

Yankees, including "The Iron Horse" Lou Gehrig... a signed 2007 MVP season game-used Jimmy Rollins home jersey... an Alex Rodriguez game-used 2007 MVP season signed and inscribed bat... and more!
