Notable sports celebrities were out in force at the Hyatt in Cherry Hill
For 109 years, the Philadelphia Sports Writers Association has recognized the accomplishments and character of the athletes we cheer for when they’re wearing their uniform, and we benefit from when they contribute to the community. The event was held at the Hyatt in Cherry Hill, and many of our town’s favorite sports figures were on hand.
The Philadelphia Sports Writers Association Banquet is an annual fundraiser that brings together sports media members, teams, leagues and the Greater Philadelphia community. The banquet celebrates the best of Greater Philadelphia athletics through awards for outstanding accomplishments in various categories.
In addition to these awards, PSWA has established a scholarship fund with its proceeds that annually awards $1,000 to qualified student-athletes from Pennsylvania colleges and universities based on their academic and athletic achievements. The approximate cost for a table of ten is $750 per person.

It can only happen if parents have enough money to send their children to college and provide for their needs. It also allows children attending college to better themselves. It will help them get a degree and a job and give them something to fall back on if they have trouble finding a career.
2. Team Recognition
It allows teams to be recognized for their accomplishments on and off the field. It gives fans of that team a chance to celebrate their success with other fans and meet players they do not often get to meet in person.
