Community to Remember Mitchell Gross, z”l, on 10th Yahrzeit

On Thursday, June 28, the family of Mitchell Gross, z”l, will be hosting a memorial service to mark his 10th yahrtzeit. Gross’s name is associated with the highly touted Mitch Gross Basketball League (MGBL), although it may not be as well known that Mitch was an incredible father, brother and friend to all those who were fortunate enough to get to meet him.

MGBL commemorates Mitch Gross while serving as a high-caliber recreational basketball program for Bergen County boys and girls in second through eighth grades and high school boys. The league focuses on teaching basketball fundamentals to players at all levels and the value of working together as a team. The league is an enthusiastic and affordable program open to residents of Bergen County including Bergenfield, Englewood, Fair Lawn, New Milford, Teaneck, Tenafly and other surrounding Bergen County towns and also includes participants from Passaic County, Manhattan, Riverdale and Rockland County, New York. After general expenses, all profits of the league are donated to local charitable organizations in memory of Mitch.

Please join friends, family and members of the community as they gather together to celebrate Mitch’s incredible life. The event will take place at Thursday, June 28, at 7:00 p.m. at the Richard Rodda Community Center located on 250 Colonial Court (2nd floor) in Teaneck. All those who wish to attend are encouraged to bring any pictures or memorabilia that they may be willing to share.
