The Jimmy Rollins Family foundation held its third annual Harlem Nights Charity event on June 20th, 2013 at Union Transfer, Philadelphia.  The dark atmosphere and great decor of Union Transfer really set the stage for the “Roaring Twenties” themed event.  The Phillies players did not disappoint; hats, canes, wingtips, lots of tweed, bow ties, a cigar or two and other twenties gear made the Phils looked like they just stepped out of The Great Gatsby.  As enjoyable as it was for the fans that attended the fundraiser to see the Phils in old time gear, it seemed just as enjoyable for the Phils to see each other.  As Jimmy and Jahari Rollins greeted each teammate on the red carpet there was a steady stream of smiles and laughs. For my money, Laynce and Brooke Nix were my favorites, pictured in feature photo (above).  Carlos “Chooch” Ruiz seemed to be the favorite to the other Phillies and got lots of smiles.

Jimmy Rollins is no stranger to charity work in Philadelphia.  Together with his wife, Jahari Rollins, Jimmy works to leave a legacy off the field as great as his play on the field.  Some of Jimmy’s charities have included, Havana Nights, Animal Rehab Center and BaseBOWL.

And here’s some video produced by PHL17’s morning show, Eye Opener.
