PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – Fans have a chance to rub elbows with none other than Phils ace Roy Halladay this Sunday, in a charity event before Sunday’s game.
A pregame tent party at Citizens Bank Park will allow fans who buy special tickets the chance to catch Roy Halladay. Actually, they can catch an appearance by Halladay at the Phans Feeding Families event, which benefits Philabundance.
“Summer is a critical time for hunger in the Delaware Valley, with all of the schoolchildren who aren’t getting the breakfasts and school lunches as school is out,” says Philabundance spokeswoman Marlo DelSordo.
DelSordo says the “Phans Feeding Families” effort has provided 50,000 meals for the needy since it began a month ago. A portion of the tent party ticket price ($75 of the $125) goes directly to the Phans Feeding Families project.
