The 24th Phillies Phestival took place May 16th, 2013 at Citizens Bank Park.  Almost 7,000 Phillies fans were on hand and helped raise $860,000 to help fight ALS, better known as Lou Gehrig’s disease.  The Phillies Phestivals have raised over $14 million since they began in 1984.

Top silent auction items included; Opportunity To Be Honorary Phillies Batboy/girl – $2,000, Muhammad Ali and Joe Frazier Signed Glove Set – $1,550, 1980 Phillies Team Signed Poster – $1,350, Trip for Two to Miami for Phillies/Marlins Series (9/23-25) – $1,250 and a Roy Halladay 2012 Game-Used Home Alternate Jersey – $1,000.  The evening culminates with a very special closed meet and greet for ALS patients and members of the Phillies.
