The invite only event, which will be held next week, will feature cocktails and hors d’oeuvres, press and media exposure, and tons of casino themed fun.
Chase and Jenn would also like to thank the sponsors of the event for their support of a great cause. The sponsors of Utley’s All-Star Animals are:

I am an Utley fan and have a passion for animals. Both Chase and Jenn should be commended on everything they do for their love for animals. I work with Special Education Students throughout NJ and have worked for Veterninarians. I am a vegetarian and would love to help with your organization. I work for Burlington County Special Services School District which is located right next to The Burlington Animal Shelter. Too many Staffishire Terriers are brought in and neglected. I wish there was more we could do for this breed of animal in both NJ and PA.

Big fan of both you and the team. You have been killin it in games. Had a quick question about your wifes campaign, was wondering if you will be selling apparel for the All-Star Animals? It would be a great way to raise money and i love the logo its so damn cool looking. Hats, t-shirts, sweat bands etc. The spca is a great program, my family rescued my dog Bailey, a man brought him in and just left him for the people to find he was not feed properly and was left outside for a few days before the man took him to the spca. He is doing fine know he is a 2 year old boxer.
Thank you, and cant wait to hear back about the Apparel.

I have been a big fan of yours ever since you started with the Phillies. I really admire the way you play the game. For my 50th birthday in Feb. I told my husband that all I wanted was to go to Clearwater. We went in March and were able to see two games – what a great experience! The only bad thing was I didn’t get a chance to meet you. I was able to get Jamie Moyer to sign my Phillies jersey but then I was kicked out of the signing area just before you came out. I looked back and you were right at the spot I had just been in! I was really disappointed. I’ll try again at the next game I go to.
I really admire the work you and your wife do with the SPCA. I have had 2 cats and a dog that were rescues. I think it’s so important to give a needy animal a good home. Keep up the good work!

Hi Chase and Jenn,
It was great meeting you both at your amazing event on Thursday! From the bottom of my heart I want to thank you for using your celebrity for such a good cause. Chase, the showing of your teammates was a testament to not only what good people you all are, but also to the fact that there are empathetic folks at all levels of society who truly care what happens to a defenseless, loving creature. It was a night my husband, Buck, and I will never forget.
I left my information with the Cashman girls per the request of Jenn so that you may call on us for assistance in any way in the future. We stand ready to do our best to eradicate the atrocities that occur in out city every day. We know a lot of folks who care and who want to help the PSPCA and your Utley’s All Star Animals organization.
Thank you both again for all you do. Even with all the photos, autographing and tireless interviews you both remained true to the cause of the evening and your generous, caring hearts shone thru!
Lisa Smartt & Buck Buchanan

Dear Chase and Jenn,
I just wanted to thank you for allowing us to take part in hosting your casino fundraiser for the PSPCA last evening at the F.U.E.L. House. It is wonderful what you and Jenn are doing for such a worthy cause, and it was nice to see that so many people came out to support you and the PSPCA. Jenn, even though I did not get a chance to personally meet Chase, it was great meeting and working with you. Thank you again and it was our pleasure. We look forward to next year. Keep up the great work both on and off the field!

Leo & Jeannette and Dan…...Since this is an “invitation only” event, it doesn’t sound like individual tickets are available.
I’m also wondering how those of you offering your services could contact Chase and Jen more directly. Not sure how much time they have to check this site.
I have a connection with the Phillies. I’ll see if I can get more info for you.
Dan | on 29/5/08
This is such a great idea and great event. My wife and I are heavily involved in Chester & Montgomery County with many different projects. Are tickets available or possible to obtain? Anyone know, please write back

Love to see athletes and wives taking up animal causes…you guys help shape the views of millions of fans much more than you might think! So much abuse out there, they need us humans to fight it. And by the way…as a Phillies fan since the 50’s…WOW...are you great! Again thanks to you and Jenn!

Please keep me in mind when having your next Casino Night. I have been a professional dealer for 25 years. I am an animal lover as well as lifelong Phillies fan. Chase would have no trouble recruiting dealers for his charity night as he is certainly a fan favorite here at the shore.
Anything I can do ?? All you have to do is ask.
Noah Schorr | on 28/5/08
Chase and Jenn, I think it is great for you guys to do things to promote the fight against animal cruelty and I hope everything is successful on casino night. Thanks.

How much are tickets? We owned miniature dachshunds for 30 years (2 sets of 2)
and are supporters of AWA among other animal charities.
We’d be thrilled to be part of this evening. Please let us know how
Thank you …and God bless…..
