Merry Meals Gary RailCats Fundraiser Helps the Region

June 17, 2011 by · 3 Comments 

Merry MealsToday is the day that marks the half way mark to the Merry Meals distribution of 500 meals to deserving families in Northwest Indiana for the Christmas holidays.

What started off as a personal mission for Mandy Moore from Chesterton Indiana several years ago has now swollen to a grass roots effort involving the whole community. I’m proud to say that I am on the Board of Directors and have helped the cause when we intially hand delivered the meals.

As a coordinated effort with the Gary SouthShore RailCats and their celebration of their 10th Anniversary, Merry Meals partnered to have a family fun night at the ball park tonight. Merry Meals commited to sell 500 tickets in honor of the 500 families that will receive a dinner during the Christmas holiday.

It should be noted that not all who bought a ticket will be in attendance. For instance, several businesses bought tickets to actually give back to youth organizations while others simply donated money to Merry Meals.

Gary RailCats Tenth AnniversaryCome join us tonight and watch the Gary SouthShore RailCats versus the St Paul Saints. If you have children, make sure to show up early and be one of the 1st 500 in attendance so that your child can receive a Mystery Autographed Hoosier Bat. You will also want to stay for the post-game fireworks.

Even if you didn’t buy a ticket from a representative of Merry Meals, come out and support the Gary SouthShore RailCats who also have a vested interest in a better community.

    Agreed Cathy! What events can we watch for next with Merry Meals James?

  3. Jim – Stay tuned as we will have several more fundraising events in the coming months. Furthermore, we will be collecting all the non-perishable food items that will be needed to feed the 500 families. If you have any creative ideas how to expand our outreach please share.
