(Reading, PA) – The Reading Phillies are pleased to announce that the 2012 Philadelphia Phillies Winter Banquet will make its annual stop in Reading, PA on Tuesday, January 24 at The Crowne Plaza Reading Hotel.

The event will begin at 5:30 p.m. with cocktail hour, and will feature prizes, auction items, highlight videos, dinner and more. As in past years, the event will also serve as the annual King of Baseballtown fundraiser. An announcement regarding the crowning of the 10th King of Baseballtown will be made in the near future.

Tickets for the banquet are $65 each or $600 for a 10-person table, and can currently be purchased in-person at the R-Phils Ticket Office, or by phone at 610-370-BALL. Proceeds benefit the Reading Phillies Baseballtown Charities, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to helping more children, who otherwise wouldn't have the opportunity, play baseball. Complete registration and financial information of Baseballtown Charities can be obtained from the Pennsylvania Department of State at 1-800-732-0999. The Reading Phillies trademarked the name Baseballtown in 2002 and began programs in its name with goals to honor Reading's rich baseball history and secure its baseball future by giving more kids the opportunity to play and learn from the game's life lessons.

Last year’s event featured National Baseball and Reading Baseball Hall-of-Famer Ryne Sandberg, Phillies manager Charlie Manuel, Phillies play-by-play broadcaster Tom McCarthy, R-Phils slugger Matt Rizzotti, and Phillies assistant general managers Scott Proefrock and Benny Looper (player personnel). This year’s list of Phillies players and personnel will be announced at a later date.
