And just in time too, because BEN-FM's going to be giving away trips to Disney World in just a few weeks!

Last, we've talked about the Red Cross' annual Red Ball on BEN Around Philly before, but we've never heard the details from one of Philly's most famous football stars. Listen as Vince Papale himself chats with Matt and Kristen about this great event for a cause. The Red Cross Red Ball is this Saturday, April 1st (no foolin!) at Lincoln Financial Field. Find all of the details and buy tickets HERE. And don't forget to wear RED!
