Phillies Phestival 2013
On May 16th the Ballgirls and the entire Phillies organization joined together to help strike out ALS Lou Gehrig’s Disease. The Phillies fans were able to raise $860,731 during this great event that we got to help volunteer at. Here is what some of us thought about being at the Phillies Phestival.
Rachael: This was my second Phillies Phestival to help raise money for ALS. It is great event that Phillies fans get to enjoy. As a fan, I know how excited it is to meet your favorite players after cheering them on day in and day out and this day makes it possible while also being for a great cause!
Steph D: Last Thursday was the first time I attended the Phillies Phestival ever and I am glad I was there as a ball girl. I volunteered to work the Ben Revere photo booth where I got to sell tickets to fans to get a photo with him. After that I helped out at the dice game and that was very overwhelming but exciting at the same time. It was great seeing fans excited to win a lot of prizes.
Kelly: I had a blast working at the phestival. This was my first time going and I could not believe how many people showed up to participate and donate to charity! It was a lot of fun working the “Every Roll’s A Winner” game. The excitement on the fans faces was priceless! Raising money for ALS was a lot of fun and a great experience!
Steph T: Being a part of the Phillies Festival was an incredible experience. It really gave me a new perspective on things and it felt great to know that I was making a difference in people’s lives. There was such a great turnout and it was a wonderful feeling to be a part of an organization that takes such pride in helping others.
Madeline: Before working the Phillies Phestival this year, I have never attended the event. I really feel like I have been missing out. It was such a great evening. Looking back on the event and seeing that the Phillies Phestival raised $860,731 for The ALS Association it hard to view it as anything but a huge success. Everyone who attended had amazing time. The fans waited for hours to scope out their game plan on the main concourse and loved contributing to the fundraising for Lou Gehrig’s Disease. All the players and employees of the Phillies seemed to be having a great time aiding such a great cause.
Kory: This was my first year working the Phestival and I could not have asked for a better experience. I not only met a ton of great people but the fans were so enthusiastic and really made the day so much fun! I had a blast working at the “Every Roll’s A Winner” game. The fans seemed to really enjoy all of the great prizes they won! I’m so glad that we could raise money to help the ALS foundation!
