WHAT: The Phillies are hosting several fan events before and during the 3:05 p.m. game against the Dodgers on Saturday, May 24, 2014:
- Jen Utley and the Phillies Wives will be hosting the Phillies Wives Save a Pet at the Park, from 1:05 pm-5:05pm, at the First Base Gate. Fans can meet and adopt a shelter cat or dog, as well as take part in a silent auction, raffle or mystery ball - all to benefit the PSPCA. There will also be a new pet toys and blanket drive, and half the proceeds from that day's Phillies Charities 50/50 Drawing will also benefit the PSPCA.
- The Phillies are hosting the sold-out Bark in the Park, where 50+ lucky dogs and their human friends will watch the game on the Budweiser "wooftop" on Ashburn Alley. Proceeds benefit the PSPCA.
