The Phillies and Philadelphia Futures are thrilled to team up again for the annual Get in the Game celebrity bowling tournament. Over the last 18 years, Get in the Game has raised over $2 million to support the college aspirations of Philadelphia's low-income, first-generation-to-college students. Since its early days as a billiards tournament in a pool hall in Manayunk to our fabulous Get in the Game Celebrity Bowling Tournament, the winning partnership of the Phillies, our sponsors, and enthusiastic guests has been a game changer for Philadelphia students.
Since 2001, Get in the Game event supporters have funded:
- College-related expenses for 48 Sponsor-A-Scholar students
- 6,868 hours of summer academic programming
- 3,910 hours of SAT prep
- 6,120 hours of after-school classes
- 6,728 hours of extracurricular activities
- 48,187 miles of college trips
- 24,254 soft pretzels and 28,288 slices of pizza
This year, the event will take place on Sunday, April 28, 2019 at 5:00pm at South Bowl, located at 19 East Oregon Avenue, Philadelphia, PA.
We are currently recruiting sponsorships, where you have the opportunity to join the Phillies organization and an array of celebrity team captains for this spirited Bowling Tournament.
