22nd Annual Party & Auction

At this year’s event attendees enjoyed a party with a purpose filled with delicious food and drinks, an exciting array of auction items, and live music by the Alexandra Day Trio. An exclusive V.I.P. Cocktail Hour in the Phillies Clubhouse Locker Room was added, as well as special guest appearances from Philadelphia Phillies and Philadelphia Eagles alumni!
