Previewing the Wall Ball Auction

For this year’s Wall Ball, we’ve put together an exciting collection of items and experiences for our live and silent auctions. In our silent auction, we have artwork by muralists we’ve worked with including Phillip Adams, How and Nosm (pictured above), and Joe Boruchow. There are also unique opportunities like a day in D.C. courtesy of Senator Bob Casey and dinner at Marc Vetri’s Lo Spiedo. Those items and more are already online, so if you can’t make it to Wall Ball or something catches your eye that you absolutely have to have, just “buy it now” in our online shop. And it only gets better with the live auction. Make sure you’re at Wall Ball to bid on tickets to The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon & The Roots, a tour of Philadelphia with Eagles Linebacker Connor Barwin, artwork by SWOON, and much more.
