A few weeks ago, the Phillies Phestival took place at Citizens Bank Park. Thousands of fans attended in order to raise money to provide care and services to ALS patients in the Greater Philadelphia area. There was an annual autograph and auction party to help strike out ALS.  This year, the Phillies raised $718,686 for the fight against the disease, bringing total dollars raised since 1984 to $17 million.

“As a result of the Phillies efforts these past three decades, people with ALS in our area have greater access to a wide range of services. We are honored to team with the Phillies for this cause because we see the impact that they make not just today, but every single day of the year.” said Ellyn Phillips, President of the ALS Association Greater Philadelphia Chapter.
