2021 Softball Tournament IS ON!

Corner of Broadway &
Parkway Road

8:30 AM – 7:00 PM
Rain Date: June 20th

YES WE ARE ON…we will be hosting the 17th annual softball tournament! 

2020 is  a year we will not readily forget. For everyone it presented challenges, required changes in how we navigate our environment, and some of us suffered personal losses. 

We were forced  to make a decision we hoped we would never have to make – cancelling the Justin Sheftel Tournament three times, we did stay hopeful as long as we could.  Finally in September we  determined that we could not safely and responsibly hold the event.  Our Foundation’s values are focused on friendship, teamwork, service and family and our decision to cancel was driven by those values and unanimously supported by our Board. 

We are busy planning for the 2021 Tournament, as we strive to fulfill our mission to support athletic programs and provide scholarships for underserved youth in our Lehigh Valley community.

The proceeds from the Tournament are used to cover any and all operational expenses we incur during the year and on the day of the Tournament. However, ALL sponsorship dollars are used for the scholarship awards to Parkland and Allentown School District students and for contributions to local organizations that focus on providing athletic programs to our underserved youth in the greater Lehigh Valley. 

Due to the overwhelming support in 2020 we were able to support the scholarships and continue our level of donations to the non profits. For more information on our non – profits and the scholarship winners for 2020 with updates for all scholarship winners – see the links below.

Last  year we hosted our second Golf Outing, with the weather being iffy and forecast not in our favor.  We were lucky with a few drops of rain and wonderful turnout for the day.  A fun and great day of golf was enjoyed. Due to the positive feedback we are planning our third (we can now annual) Golf Tourney; looking forward to a fun day with friends and family. All proceeds go to the Justin Sheftel Memorial Fund.

We  should have a date and venue with more details soon.
