It's that time of year again! Welcome back to school and belated welcome back to all of those who have already started. We are looking forward to the year and busy collecting supplies for our first bag packing. We had a great end to the last school year with several productive drives and we can't wait to get those supplies to kiddos in treatment. Please consider picking up some extra supplies when you are stocking up for your kids. We do not require tissues or wipes!!!! As a reminder we accept brand new

We had a great event this morning at Gladwyne Elementary School. Thank you to Susan Chang, Laura Chimento, The Gladwyne HSA, Principal Ellers and all the Gladwyne families that sent in art supplies and help to put them in bags. This crew packed over 100 bags with many supplies to spare! Also thank you to Tate for handing out some swag to all our hard workers.
A special thank you to the National Board of Medical Examiners, who held an art supply drive at work and then took a lunch hour to pack 79 swag bags!!! Well done, crew!
Check out their social media!
We did it! 2 days, 24 teams, 47 games, 4 tournament champions. Teams from The Lehigh Valley, Mt. Airy, Philadelphia, Wayne and Haverford. Many soft pretzels, pizzas, gatorades and Swedish Fish. A huge shout out to Gigi and Pop Pop, Aunt Raynay, Bev Russoff, Megan Carr, and many friends and volunteers. And kudos to Lower Merion Boy’s Travel Basketball for coordination of teams, schedules and refs. These teams were thrilled to play in The Kobe Bryant gymnasium. And wow, Lower Merion School District you knocked it out of the park! Or, court, in this case. We cannot thank you enough. Once we recover we can start planning for next year!!!!
Lower Merion Boys AAU Basketball and Lucy Belle's Rainbow are proud to announce the first annual Crushing Kids' Cancer Classic, April 7th and 8th 2018. 5th, 6th and 7th graders from Lower Merion will complete with local teams at Welsh Valley Middle and Lower Merion High Schools to raise funds for Lucy Belle's Rainbow and a local cancer family.
Come see some great basketball and help a good cause! Lucy was very clear - she said no running, ever but she never said anything about basketball. And her brother is pretty darn good if I don't say so myself.
More info to come!
