More than $90,000 raised for people in need!
Philadelphia Phillies fans had a chance to compete against Big League Impact vice president Kyle Gibson, co-host Zach Eflin and their Phillies teammates during this year’s Swinging for Impact Topgolf Challenge. This unique event allowed fans to interact with the players in an intimate setting and raised more than $90,000 for two awesome organizations hand-picked by Gibson and Eflin:
- Help One Now, which will use the funds raised to sponsor children at the organization’s Ferrier Secondary School for one school year. The school is part of Help One Now’s trafficking prevention initiatives within Haiti. Gibson is also supporting Help One Now via his charity fantasy football league. Combined, the funds raised by our recent Philly events will sponsor 126 students.
- Kisses for Kyle, which will be able to provide yearlong support for 24 families facing a pediatric cancer diagnosis. Their support includes offering financial assistance to families in need so they can focus on their child’s care. Kisses for Kyle also provides gifts and other items to help comfort families during a challenging time.
Participating Phillies players included Corey Knebel, Rhys Hoskins, Matt Vierling, Kyle Schwarber, Brad Hand, Darick Hall, Nick Castellanos, Bryce Harper, Aaron Nola, JT Realmuto, Noah Syndergaard, Bradley Zimmer, Sam Coonrod, Bryson Stott, Garrett Stubbs, Alec Bohm, Brandon Marsh and Nick Maton, as well as manager Rob Thomson and coaches Kevin Long, Brian Kaplan and Paco Figueroa.
Special thanks to emcee Scott Palmer and to our generous sponsors for their support of this event — E3 Wealth, Stan Crisci and the Phillies organization.
