Phillies night out to howl

Phillies night out to howl


For the third year, Chase and Jennifer Utley hosted their annual casino night to benefit the PSPCA, which drew 450 attendees at the Electric Factory Thursday night.

Included was a gaggle of Phillies, including Ryan Howard, Shane Victorino, Jayson Werth, Cole Hamels, Raul Ibanez, Kyle Kendrick, Danny Baez, Juan Castro, Ben Francisco, Roy Halladay, Jimmy Rollins, and Brian Schneider.

The silent auction featured small sculpted animals that the players decorated (see below).

The big hit of the night was the live auction item: batting lessons from Utley for eight people -- which sold for $13,500 after a starting bid of $5,000.

The Phillies seem to love their pets. Try my matching quiz. Click here for the answers. (Props to "dogzrool," who got it correct right off the bat.)
