The Phillies Wives are an active part of the Phillies Family and take part in numerous charitable events, including raising funds for worthy causes, collecting shoes and backpacks for deserving children and visiting with patients at the Phillies Phestival for ALS.
The 2017 Phillies Phestival took place on May 11 at Citizens Bank Park and garnered a grand total of $656,500. The Phillies Phestival is a fun-filled autograph and auction party for all ages which is held annually with the goal to strike out ALS, the devastating neuromuscular condition for which there is no known cause or cure. Since 1984, the Phillies have raised nearly $17.7 million for The ALS Association, Greater Philadelphia Chapter's patient services and research.
Phillies Wives Save a Pet at the Park
