Jimmy Rollins Family Foundation’s ‘Taste of the World: Bollywood Bash 2014′

The Phillies donned Indian garb to support charities that make healthy food available to children and families in need. Oh, and guess what? Jen Utley’s pregnant!

Last night at the Union League the Jimmy Rollins Family Foundation held its fourth annual bash which always has an exciting city theme to it. In the past they created Havana Nights, Harlem Nights and A Night in Paris. Last night it was Taste of the World: Bollywood Bash 2014.

The Rollins event is always fun and lively; his teammates are good sports and always dress for the theme, and last night they didn’t disappoint, as you’ll see in the photos. As with all the Rollins events I’ve attended, it was a laid back fun evening for the players, supporters and fans.


The evening started with cocktail party held in the Lincoln Hall. There were food stations by various local restaurants including Sbraga, Dandelion and Davio’s, music was by CTO’s Tribeca band who had the dance floor packed all evening, and when they weren’t playing, CTO’s DJ Ravi Jackson was mixing up Michael Jackson and current favorites. Down the hall there was an entire room devoted to sweet desserts, including a gorgeous four-tied Bollywood inspired cake created by Cakes & Candies by MaryEllen. Proceeds from the event will benefit local charities dedicated to making healthy food available to children and families most in need including at risk youth in the Philadelphia area.

    Maybe they could play better in looser fitting Bollywood garb…it won’t restrain their swing. Plus, as they chase fly balls their Bollywood uniforms would blow in the wind. A thing of beauty!
