Back by popular demand! The Phillies and Philadelphia Futures are building the future at the annual Get in the Game celebrity bowling tournament. Over the last 17 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 45 Sponsor-A-Scholar students
  • 6,464 hours of summer academic programming
  • 3,680 hours of SAT prep
  • 5,760 hours of after-school classes
  • 6,332 hours of extracurricular activities
  • 42,352 miles of college trips
  • 22,827 soft pretzels and 26,624 slices of pizza
This year, the event will take place on Thursday, April 26, 2018 at 6:00pm at South Bowl, located at 13 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.
