The Archdiocese of Philadelphia’s Catholic Charities Appeal (CCA) will once again partner with the Philadelphia Phillies to host a night of family fun at Citizens Bank Park on Friday, June 21 at 7:05 p.m. as the Phillies take on their Eastern Division rivals the Miami Marlins.
A portion of the proceeds from each ticket purchased through a dedicated link will go directly to CCA.
If 500 of those tickets to the game are sold, Keira Quinn, a student from the Catholic Social Services Out-of-School Time Program at St. Gabriel’s in Philadelphia, will throw out the first pitch of the game. In addition, a CCA beneficiary organization will sing the National Anthem.
June 21 is also Chase Utley Retirement Night, featuring a special pregame ceremony in which the Phillies star will officially retire as a Phillie, capping his 16-season big-league career. All fans will receive a Chase Utley bobblehead figurine.
The appeal is the archdiocese’s most important fundraiser each year, benefiting hundreds of thousands of people through scores of organizations and ministries in the Philadelphia region.
Programs that receive funding from CCA include housing for the homeless, community food cupboards, afterschool academic enrichment and recreational opportunities for youth, and family support services.

Help keep Catholic media free, support CatholicPhilly.com
You may have noticed “pay walls” greeting you when you visit the websites of newspapers and magazines, both large and small. These mechanisms allow you to read a few articles for free before you’ve got to pay an annual fee if you want to see more.
You won’t find a pay wall on CatholicPhilly.com because we’re more than a news organization. We’re informing, inspiring and forming readers in the Catholic faith every day through the news, features and commentaries that we post on this site and share across social media.
It costs money to provide high-quality coverage of the local Catholic communities we primarily serve, while also distributing national and world news of interest to Catholics, plus the orthodox teachings of the Catholic faith.
Help us in this mission by making a single gift of $40, $50, $100, or more. Your gift will strengthen the fabric of our entire Catholic community.
