Today's a day off for the Phillies but the players are very much on raising money for their charities.
The biggest is Hunter Pence's "Let's Go Eat" Food and Fun Fest. The event raises money for Pilabundance and the Make-A-Wish foundation":
Join Hunter Pence on the deck of the Moshulu for his inaugural "Let’s Go Eat!" Food and Fun Fest benefit on Thursday, May 31, 2012. The event will be featuring athletes, sports personalities and entertainers benefiting the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Philadelphia, PHILABUNDANCE and Phillies Charities, Inc.
Tickets are still on sale for tonight for $150.00. The event is held on The Moshulu on the Delaware River. Many local celebrities and other players should be there tonight. Pretty neat!
Placido Polanco will be raising money for the Kisses for Kyle Foundation for their "Spring Fling" at the Willow Grove Park Mall tonight starting at 6pm. The foundation assists children fighting cancer.
The event is described on the Kisses for Kyle website:
Pre-purchase a $50 Willow Grove Mall gift card. The purchase will include a meet & greet with Philles’ third baseman Placido Polanco, an autographed baseball and group photo that will be printed on site at the time of the meet & greet. The gift cards will be given to families the foundation serves who will be completing a “Shopping Spree” that night with all of the gift card purchases. We are very proud of the unique concept for this event and appreciate all of your continued love and support.
