OPEN PRACTICE Nearly 26,000 fans came out to open practice on August 8, with tickets benefiting Eagles Autism Foundation. For the second year, players wore specially designed Eagles Autism Foundation practice jerseys, available for auction following the practice. Fans could purchase special game-worn jerseys, autographed memorabilia and more at the Yard Sale, staffed by players’ significant others and captained by Kylie Kelce. Additional funds were raised through 50/50 raffle and Round Up at the Register.
HUDDLE UP FOR AUTISM DRIVE THROUGH EVENT Huddle Up for Autism was reimagined in 2021 to bring families together in a safe, socially-distanced manner. Specifically designed for families with a child on the autism spectrum, the sensory-friendly event was a one-of-a-kind drive-thru experience, benefitting the Center for Autism Research at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. With families enjoying the activities from the comfort of their own vehicles, the day featured a visually interactive route that started in the Lincoln Financial Field parking lot and commenced on the field with a family photo. Guests were treated to special appearances by the Elmwood Park Zoo, Adventure Aquarium, SWOOP, Eagles Cheerleaders, the Mural Arts Program, and more.
