The National Foundation for Celiac Awareness (NFCA) is gearing up for the 6th Annual Celiac Awareness Night with the Philadelphia Phillies and the staff couldn’t be more excited for this year’s event. We’ll be hanging out in front of the Hall of Fame Club (near Section 211) to provide fans with information on celiac disease, gluten sensitivity and the gluten-free diet. Come by to meet the staff and enter your name in the free raffle for your chance to win Phillies memorabilia and tickets to a 2013 regular season game plus a parking pass and a coupon for great food at the stadium.
