Tug McGraw Foundation Awareness Night, which kicks off Brain Tumor Awareness Month, will feature a “Screwball VIP pre-game party� taking place at the Phillies Party Tent along with special guests to be announced. The event will include a silent auction of Phillies and Tim McGraw memorabilia, as well as a raffle for tickets to Tim McGraw’s summer concert in Philadelphia.

A select number of tickets are available for the “Screwball VIP pre-game party.â€� Orders for these will be filled on a first come, first served basis. Regular game tickets are also available. To order tickets visit: www.phillies.com/tugmcgraw.

“The Tug McGraw Foundation is making great strides in generating attention and research to improve quality of life for those who are affected by brain tumors and other neurological conditions,� said Tim McGraw, Tug’s son and TMF Honorary Chairman. “I’m grateful to the Phillies for making this event happen and for their ongoing support for Tug and others.�
