Join the Philadelphia Sports Writers Association on January 30 as they hand out awards to local athletes and teams during their 108th annual banquet.

Among the winners is Phillies outfielder Hunter Pence, the recipient of this years “Good Guy Award.” The Philadelphia Phillies were named “Team of the Year” for their 102-win season and playoff berth.

He also joins an outstanding lineup at this year’s awards dinner, including Flyers center Claude Giroux (Pro Athlete of the Year) and Villanova cross country star Shelia Reid (Outstanding Amateur Athlete). The Phillies will be honored as the Team of the Year, and both Phillies manager Charlie Manuel and Flyers coach Peter Laviolette will be in attendance.

Join Pence at the PSWA Awards Dinner Jan 30.

Other awards, including Living Legend, Native Son and Humanitarian of the Year, among others, will be announced in coming weeks, as will a couple of memorable surprise presentations and some “Special Achievement” awards. The most coveted award—Most Courageous—is kept secret until the night of the dinner.

Comedian Joe Conklin will also perform at the dinner, the oldest continuing sports awards banquet in the nation.

The public is welcome at the dinner. Tickets are $95 apiece, and are available by clicking here.

Doors to the banquet open at 5 p.m.. with the dinner starting promptly at 6:30 p.m.

    Bus Tickets; online bus ticket booking: However, one of the major pain points is buying bus tickets. You need to search and find a good travel agent in your area, search for good discounts, talk to or meet the person and pay lot of commission to buy the ticket for the desired date. A not so favorable second alternative is to go to bus depot, stand in long, serpentine queues at the ticket counters and buy the ticket
