About The Foundation
In 2010, four friends came together with a common idea – to help children in the Delaware Valley follow their dreams. Kathy Romano, Gary DeVito, Megan Reshetar, and Robin Gupta formed Fresh Smiles to benefit children who cannot afford to pursue their passion. While there are many other noble charities that are helping children, Fresh Smiles is looking for children who have a special talent, skill or interest. By providing some direction and funding, Fresh Smiles gives these children the opportunity to further explore their passion and recognize that they have a positive and successful future ahead of them.
The Fresh Smiles Foundation is a non-profit organization recognized as tax-exempt under Internal Revenue code 501(c)(3).
Kathy is one of the founders of Fresh Smiles. After receiving a BA in Communication Studies from West Chester University, she worked at NBC-10 the Sixers organization and Comcast Sportsnet. In 2003 she joined the Preston and Steve Show, which currently airs on 93.3 WMMR. Kathy, who resides in Montgomery County, continues to work with many different charitable organizations.

Founder, Research & Development, Community Outreach
Robin Gupta, originally from Montreal, has always been business oriented. At the age of 18, with access to no funds, was able to negotiate a 50% stake in a failing Dominos Pizza franchise store in a suburb of Montreal in exchange of his time and labor. In 8 months Robin took this Dominos store from going out of business to one of the top 10 grossing stores in Canada. Since then, he has owned and operated a successful mortgage company, Edge Financial Services, but is best known for his Cheers style corner bar Guppy’s in Conshohocken. Driven by a strong desire to care for others and make a difference, he makes himself available to help raise funds for good causes on a weekly basis, often using Guppy’s as a venue, donating supplies and resources.
On a more personal level, Robin has been a volunteer for Big Brothers for the past 8 years. He considers his little brother Gabe the best part of his life. Robin’s strong business sense and passion to help those in need are what define his strong qualities and represent what he contributes to this foundation.
