Diversity Night at the Reading Fightin’ Phils

The Jewish Federation of Reading/Berks in partnership with the Greater Reading Unity Coalition announce Diversity Night at the Reading Fightin’ Phils game on Sunday, September 3. The game is against the New Hampshire Fisher Cats and will take place at FirstEnergy Stadium, 1900 Centre Ave Reading. Gates open at 4 p.m. and the first pitch is slated to be thrown at 5:15 p.m.

Diversity Night at the Fightin’ Phils is a night to celebrate our incredibly diverse community here in Berks County. The event is organized by the Greater Reading Unity Coalition which includes the following organizations: Jewish Federation of Reading/Berks, The Reading Branch of the NAACP, Centro Hispano, Islamic Center of Reading, LGBT Center of Greater Reading and Bring the Change. Each organization will have table set up in the Tompkins Bank Plaza before and during the game for the community to learn about their work.
