CHC Night at the Phillies starts a new Tradition

The first CHC Night at the Phillies on August 23 was a resounding success, with more than 1,100 students, alumni and friends cheering as Sister Carol threw out the first pitch.

The pre-game tailgate provided a place for all to mingle; special golden T-shirts highlighted the Griffins in several sections of right field; and — regardless of the rain that fell during the early part of the game, and the length of the event (the game went into 12 innings!) AND the fact that the Phillies lost to the Cardinals, 5 – 4 — everyone had a great time.

CHC was a designated recipient in the night's raffle, winning $4,800, which was donated to the Griffin Fund. Phillies Night 2014 was the largest alumni event, ever, and the first of what will be an annual tradition.
