Remember those various "Phanatic Around Town" statues that were placed all throughout Philadelphia as part of a public art project, led by the Greater Philadelphia Tourism Marketing Corporation and the Phillies, that features twenty, life-sized Phillie Phanatic statues located at local attractions? Well, the Phanatic statues will soon leave their posts and an online auction for the many uniquely painted Phanatics will begin on Friday, August 27th, to benefit Phillies Charities Inc.


Former Phillies pitcher Mitch Williams, along with RadioShack, is calling on all area residents to join him in the LIVESTRONG Challenge 5K walk/run that’s taking place in Philadelphia on Saturday, August 21. As a co-captain of “Team RadioShack”, Mitch is looking to participate in the 5k with as many athletes, cancer fighters and survivors, baseball fans, and everyday folks that the Philadelphia region can get.

If you are interested in participating, you can sign up to participate along side "The Wild Thing" in support of LIVESTRONG on Radio Shack's website.


On Saturday, August 21st, the Lakewood BlueClaws will be hosting a blood drive from 7am to 2pm. To mark the event, Central Jersey Blood Center Chief Operating Officer Ryan Ragan will camp out on the roof of Lakewood's FirstEnergy Park for the 4 days leading up to the event. Ragan, who stayed on the stadium's roof for a week last year to raise awareness, will only come down for BlueClaws games.

Blood donated to the Central Jersey Blood Center will help to treat premature babies, burn and trauma victims, patients suffering from leukemia and other cancers, cardiac disease, and many other conditions that require blood products for recovery.

The BlueClaws and the Central Jersey Blood Center encourage folks to sign up early. You can do so by clicking this link.
