The inaugural Phillies Charities' Phantastic Auction ended Wednesday night and raised $129,165.95 for charity.

The auction allowed fans to bid on 47 experiences with Hall of Famers, Cy Young Award winners, Most Valuable Players and All-Stars, along with trips, memorabilia and other opportunities with the Phillies. The online event generated approximately 1,000 bids, with the highest one -- $5,500 -- going for a pitching clinic with Kyle Kendrick, followed closely by a $5,050 bid for a private hitting clinic with Chase Utley.

"Thanks to great fan support, as well as the partnership of SportsRadio 94 WIP and Talk Radio 1210 WPHT, the inaugural Phantastic Auction raised nearly $130,000 for Phillies Charities, Inc., and the Phillies Phestival, which benefits the Greater Philadelphia chapter of the ALS Association," Phillies senior vice president Dave Buck said in a statement. "This event was a great way to give back to the community -- all while offering unique experiences for our fans."

Other top bids went toward a round of golf for three with Steve Carlton, a spot in the 2014 Phantasy Camp, a baseball set autographed by members of the 500 Home Run Club, a game-used and autographed baseball thrown by Roy Halladay during his no-hitter in the 2010 National League Division Series and a trip for two to 2014 Spring Training in Clearwater, Fla.

Phillies Charities, Inc., provides gifts to charitable organizations serving a variety of needs, primarily in Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Delaware, but particularly in the Philadelphia area and the communities of the Phillies' Minor League affiliates.
