Hit Polio Outta the Park! 2018
24th July 2018 was another great Rotary district 7450 night at the Phillies with over 425 Rotarians and friends attending. Over 100 of them attended the pre-game tailgate event set up in lot M with DGN Kevin Katarynik as master griller of about 250 hot dogs. Beer and water were provided by DG Paul. Ninety-seven Phillies Phan gift bags were distributed to children 18 and under at the tail gate area and at our seating sections of 242-245. You can see one Phillies Phan sporting his new Phillies baseball cap with his parents.
Between 6:30-7 p.m., and just as the rain was starting, Rotarians and friends had the opportunity to meet with Alum player and club ambassador Mickey Morandini. Mickey is an All-Star 2nd baseman who played 9 seasons with the Phillies.
For those that stayed for the game in entirety the Phillies did win! in the 16th inning, 7-4. For those interested in how we did for the End Polio Now (EPN) campaign, we raised over $10,000 with the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation match, which will immunize about 17,000 children. Thank you! for your support to EPN.
