Philadelphia Phillies To Host Game Benefiting THON

Major League Baseball teams have often been generous supporters of THON, and 2015 will be another season that features a game to benefit the cause. The Philadelphia Phillies announced they will have “THON Night” on Thursday, July 30, when they host the Atlanta Braves for a NL East showdown at Citizens Bank Park at 7:05 p.m. — just in time to help you push through the remaining dog days of summer.

This promotion can help the Phillies’ perpetually-disappointed fan base cheer for something great, especially if those Phillies fans are also Penn State supporters. Fans can support THON with the Phillies by using the password “THON” after selecting tickets for the game (tickets can be found here). You may select from any of the three seating options for the promotion and tickets will cost anywhere from $20 to $38. Net proceeds from the tickets sold through the offer will benefit Penn State THON.

In addition to the game, Penn State fans will get a treat as head football coach and baseball superstar James Franklin will be at Citizens Bank Park to throw out the first pitch. Since the Phillies are adding another dreadful season to their resumé, the tickets are inexpensive for a baseball game and there is no fear of a sellout — plus the game will be supporting THON and its cause, so it will be a night that can make any fan proud, no matter the result.
