Rob Meehl Foundation -- http://robmeehl.org/
As many of you are already aware, Rob Meehl, a cherished member of the broader Upper Moreland community and our own Upper Moreland Little League (UMLL) community suddenly and tragically passed away several months ago. Rob's loss left a void in the community and in the lives of those who knew him and were fortunate enough to call him a friend. But, now, we all have a chance to help fill that void, in Rob’s honor, by doing one of the things that Rob most liked to do himself…GIVE BACK!
Please join in as we celebrate Rob’s love of friends, family, and community spirit by participating in special FUNdraising events on Saturday, October 25th & Sunday October 26th.
Saturday evening is a night of fun, food, and music. Rob was no stranger to the dance floor and what better way to celebrate his life than to have a party in his honor. There will be raffle items as well as other ways to make a monetary donation to the cause and, of course, plenty of food, drink and dancing.
· Tickets for the night of food and drink to be held on Saturday October 25th at Maggio’s Catering in Southampton PA are $30 per person.
Sunday is all about families and sports, two things that were very important to Rob. Rob was a dedicated volunteer to several of the communities’ youth sports clubs, including UMLL, where Rob served as a coach for many years as his boys, Randy and Jaryd, came up through our program. Therefore, it’s only fitting that a day of sports fun is being planned including a run/walk, baseball, basketball and soccer events for kids up to 8th Grade. Our organizers may be adults, but our volunteers for the day will be our high school aged community members. This is a perfect opportunity for everyone to come together and participate in games and fun as a community, for one cause. Please reserve your child’s spot today. You won’t want to miss it.
· Rob Meehl Sports Fest on Sunday October 26th at the Upper Moreland Middle School is from 9:00 a.m to 5:00 p.m.

Act fast as this is a first come/first serve opportunity!
The Rob Meehl Foundation will be utilizing the Upper Moreland Hoops registration page for the sale of tickets for the Foundation’s events. To register follow the “Buy Tickets” Link here. The Rob Meehl Foundation has been established to raise funds in Rob’s name to support the Meehl boy’s college fund, the Meehl family directly, and to establish a college scholarship in Rob’s name to be awarded each year to an Upper Moreland High School senior student who best emulates the qualities of Sportsmanship, Community, and Volunteerism.
Rob spent countless hours making UM a great place to live, grow, play, and pray. It is an honor and privilege to help all the members of the UM community come together to not only honor his legacy, but to teach our young people the benefits of volunteerism and that even one person can make a HUGE difference. Rob made that difference in the lives of so many; here’s hoping we can all GIVE BACK like he did on one very special weekend.
