The 2017 Phestival was held at Citizens Bank Park on Thursday, May 11, 2017. The Phestival is a fun-filled autograph and auction party for all ages which is held annually with the goal to strike out ALS, the devastating neuromuscular condition for which there is no known cause or cure.
A total of $656,500 was raised at this year's Phillies Phestival. Thousands of fans attended the charity event at Citizens Bank Park, with monies raised to provide much-needed research, patient care and services for ALS patients in the Greater Philadelphia area. Since the Phillies adopted ALS as their primary charity in 1984, nearly $17.7 million has been raised for the fight against the disease.
