The Catholic Charities Appeal (CCA) will once again take to the field with its eighth annual “CCA Night at the Phillies” on Friday, Sept. 10 at 7:05 p.m. at Citizens Bank Park.
The Phillies will go to bat against the Colorado Rockies, and a portion of all CCA tickets sold for that evening will go directly to the appeal.
If 500 CCA tickets are sold, Father Sean Bransfield, Vice Chancellor of the Archdiocese of Philadelphia, will throw out the first pitch, with Archbishop Nelson Pérez as a special guest.
As the Philadelphia Archdiocese’s most important annual fundraiser, the CCA benefits 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.
Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, appeal beneficiaries became lifelines for area households, providing critically needed food, housing and utility assistance, wellness calls and other social outreaches.
Seating will be located in the Outfield (sections 101-107) at $38 per ticket, Pavilion (sections 201-205) at $30 per ticket and Pavilion Deck (section 310) at $20 per ticket.

For groups of 25 or more, contact Colleen Noce in the Group Sales Office at 215-463-5000, ext. 5363. All groups of 25 or more will be welcomed on the Phillies side auxiliary message boards at the top of the 5th inning.
