The Catholic Charities Appeal of the Philadelphia Archdiocese is offering a fun night out for a good cause.

The Feb. 5 Philadelphia 76ers’ game against the Boston Celtics, one of pro basketball’s oldest rivalries, is also “Catholic Charities Night” at the Wells Fargo Center. Game time is 7 p.m.

Ticket prices range from $25 to $40 each, with a portion of the proceeds purchased through a dedicated link going directly to the annual appeal. Visit this link on the Sixers’ website and enter the promo code TCF.


Every year, the Philadelphia Catholic Charities Appeal feeds, clothes, shelters and educates more than 200,000 people across Southeastern Pennsylvania, regardless of their faith. Care is provided for the homeless, the elderly, disadvantaged youth and the developmentally delayed through more than 80 social service programs that build up the dignity of those served.

Catholic Charities will receive on-court recognition as part of the Sixers’ “Non-Profit of the Night Awareness Series.”

Longstanding social worker Edward Mack will receive the Heroes Among Us Award for his work with adolescent boys through Catholic Social Services.

A table on the Wells Fargo Center concourse will display information on the appeal and a half-time “high-five” tunnel will feature 20 children from Holy Innocents Out of School Time Program.

Seating will be located in the Mezzanine Center (Rows 8-15) at $25 per ticket and in the Lower Level End (Rows 11-17) at $40 per ticket. Groups of 10 or more should contact Chris McKeown at 215-339-7601 or
