Carson Wentz’s AO1 Charity Softball Game is making a Positive Difference in our Community and Beyond!

Over 25,000 fans packed into Citizen’s Bank Park for the Inaugural Carson Wentz’s  AO1 Foundation Charity Softball Game, which raised more than $850,000! 

“As I reflect on the foundation’s first year, I’m amazed by the support from people all over the world,” said Carson Wentz, starting quarterback for the Philadelphia Eagles and foundation founder. “I wasn’t sure what to expect when we began this journey and I had the idea of the charity softball game, but it has been nothing short of incredible to see how God has used us to spread his love!”

The funds raised on Friday night will help advance the foundation’s mission to uplift individuals and communities around the world, by demonstrating God’s love for His people.

Fans were treated to a home run derby before the game. Tight end Zach Ertz, left guard Stefen Wisniewski, and kicker Jake Elliott were the three finalists.

Wisniewski took home the derby title and trophy with three unbelievable long shots into the left-field bleachers in the final round!


Following the derby, team captains Carson Wentz  & Jordan Hicks took turns picking the teams, saving Nick Foles, the Super Bowl MVP for last. The crowd kept chanting “MVP…MVP…MVP” every time Foles went to the plate.

Wentz: Ertz (1), Corey Clement (3), Jason Kelce (5), Fletcher Cox (7), Bryce Treggs (9), Jalen Mills (11), Wisniewski (13), Rodgers (15), Mike Wallace (17), Nate Sudfeld (19), Dallas Goedert (21)

Hicks: Elliott (2), Rodney McLeod (4), Mack Hollins (6), Derek Barnett (8), Brandon Brooks (10), Rasul Douglas (12), Wendell Smallwood (14), Ronald Darby (16), Halapoulivaati Vaitai (18), Nelson Agholor (20), Nick Foles (22)

Team Wentz came back from behind and scored Big in a 23-12 win over Team Hicks.



Wentz announced the arrival of the “Thy Kingdom Crumb” Food Truck that his AO1 Foundation and Connect Church in Cherry Hill, N.J., have partnered to give out free food to people in need.

“This is a project that we are excited to release and unveil,” Wentz said during a press conference before his charity softball game on Friday. “It’s something that we are really hoping to just change lives in this community and get people plugged into their faith and hopefully come to know Jesus Christ through it as well.” Wentz continued saying “It’s such a cool idea to be able to give out free food and go into these communities and surprise people, show them God’s love in a tangible way like that.”

Carson also stated that he is looking for support from local grocery stores, food distributors and restaurants. Carson’s goal here is to have the truck go into communities once a week. If you’d like more information about “Thy Kingdom Crumb?” Click Here.

Now if that wasn’t enough, Carson Wentz also gave a check of $520,000 to help fund a sports complex in Haiti. The AO1 Foundation is only 1 year old and is already making a Positive Difference locally and globally! See for yourself right HERE.

“I’m grateful for my teammates, volunteers and guests at tonight’s game for the encouragement and support they’ve given me and the foundation,” said Wentz. “By coming together, we all have the opportunity to leave a positive, lasting mark on people and communities in Philadelphia and around the world.”

Congratulations to Focus on the Family celebrating their 40th Anniversary!

Congratulations to the ministry Focus on the Family, which celebrated it’s 40th anniversary this past weekend with a celebratory gathering at it’s headquarters in Colorado Springs, CO.

The ministry, founded in 1977 by Dr. James Dobson, has long been one of the nation’s leading voices for biblical family values. It’s radio program, which goes by the same name and can be heard Monday through Friday on WBYN-FM, is heard on over 3,000 radio facilities in North America and in 27 languages in over 160 countries. The program was inducted into the National Radio Hall of Fame in 2008, and was honored as the 2012 Program of the Year by the National Religious Broadcasters.

Of Focus on the Family’s most influential stances may be it’s strong, biblical anti-abortion position. The ministry has financed ultrasound machine installations in hundreds of pregnancy clinics around the country in an effort to dissuade pregnant women from having an abortion. A 2010 initiative by the ministry has saved the lives of an estimated more than 382,000 preborn babies since it’s inception, by awarding 720 grants.

Of special note during Friday’s 40th anniversary celebration was the presence of a special guest: Vice President Mike Pence.

Pence, a born-again evangelical Christian and strong proponent of traditional marriage and religious freedom, became the first vice president or president to address a gathering at the ministry. He spoke at length about defending the unborn, while telling the crowd that President Donald Trump kept his promise on matters ranging from the Supreme Court nomination of Justice Neil Gorsuch to the president’s plans to cut off Planned Parenthood from funding, an organization which is the largest single provider of abortion in the United States.

Pence’s presence apparently came as a pleasant surprise to at least some at Focus on the Family. When asked about the vice president’s accepting the invitation, Paul Batura, the ministry’s vice president of communications, said, “We, frankly, weren’t expecting him to say yes.”

The event did not come without it’s opposition from Satan, however, the adversary of God and His people. The homosexual advocacy group GLAAD protested outside the ministry headquarters during the event, and even took to Facebook, accusing Focus on the Family of fostering “an environment of hostility towards the Colorado Springs LGBTQ community for decades, not to mention its promotion of strict ‘traditional’ gender roles, creationism in public schools, school prayer, and abstinence-only sex education.”

Could it ever be more truly said that we are living in the times spoken of by the prophet Isaiah, who said, “Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter!” (Isaiah 5:20, ESV)
