Stevie Nicks cancels A.C. gig
Stevie Nicks has canceled her Friday show at the Borgata, and a handful of other East Coast shows, due to pneumonia and the flu. LiveNation announced yesterday that the former Fleetwood Mac front-woman was advised by doctors to stay in bed and not to fly. Refunds are available starting today at the point of purchase. Her new CD, "In Your Dreams," was released Tuesday.
Phillies for a cause
Shane Victorino, Carlos Ruiz, Chase Utley and Brad Lidge were among Phillies at Morton's (1411 Walnut) Monday night for a Richie Ashburn/Harry Kalas Foundation Dinner. One amusing live-auction item that fetched $3,500 was a fan-designed photo known as the "Baby Leesus," a nativity scene featuring Cliff Lee as Baby Jesus surrounded by Phillies GM Ruben Amaro, Jr., Cole Hamels, Roy Halladay and Roy Oswalt, each of whom signed the photo. Former Phillies-turned-broadcasters Darren Daulton, now of 97.5 The Fanatic, and Ricky Bottalico, of Comcast SportsNet, were also among guests.

Speaking of Phillies . . .
The 14th annual Richie Ashburn Memorial Home Runs for Heart takes place from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday and Wednesday to benefit the American Heart Association. Ashburn died in 1997 of heart disease. The event also honors Harry Kalas, who also died of heart disease.
Fans are invited to take batting practice and catch fly balls in the outfield, for a charitable donation of course. For more information or to register, call 215-575- 5218 or visit heart.org/philadelphia.
