The Philadelphia Phillies Are FTK

This August, the Philadelphia Phillies will once again host a game benefitting THON and the Four Diamonds Fund.

Although THON’s official fundraising season will not kick off until the start of the first canning weekend, THON volunteers and supporters can still partake in some early fundraising before heading back to State College for the semester

When purchased with the promo code “THON,” a portion of funds collected from tickets for the Phillies’ Aug. 22 game against the Colorado Rockies will go towards the fight against pediatric cancer. First pitch is at 7:05 p.m.

Online tickets must be purchased prior to July 5 for the proceeds to go to THON. However, after this date tickets can still be purchased over the phone by calling 215-463-5000. Make sure to mention THON to ensure your donation.

Even if you’re not a Phillies fan, Citizens Bank Park is a great place to watch a game (note: *completely* unbiased opinion). And if the teams, who are both currently in second place in their division, continue to play as they have recently, it should make for a pretty good game. Also, there’s the crab fries.

For more information on the game, check out THON’s official event.
