The Justin Sheftel Memorial Softball Tournament will be celebrating the fifth annual outing.  Starting with four teams, from the original Ocean City groups, growing to 16 for 2007and now 20 for 2008, and continuing with 20 (or more)  teams for 2009, it has become a popular, fun day to spend and remember Justin the student, classmate, son, cousin, and nephew.  While the venue grows and the community is involved, it happens because of the dedication to Justin’s memory and all this really stands for, is honoring and remembering their friend.
The Softball Tournament supports the Memorial Fund, in Justin’s Honor.  In 2006 we awarded two scholarships to Parkland Seniors continuing on to College, each scholarship was $2,500.  For 2007  due to the support for both the golf and softball tournaments, we awarded a $5,000 scholarship to two Parkland Seniors. We also participated in Lehigh Valley Miracle League, in Justin’s Honor.  In 2008 we continued to support the Lehigh Valley Miracle League, awarded two $7,500 scholarships to Parkland Seniors (for more information on the scholarships click on the tab). In 2009 we plan on repeating our support to both Parkland High School and the Miracle Legaue with an additional program set up to support an athlete at the JCC, again in Justin’s memory.
We will be seeking sponsorships for the tournament to help defray costs and raise more money for the Memorial Fund.  We are offering four levels of participation, see below:

The Justin Sheftel Memorial Softball Tournament will be celebrating the 13th annual outing. Starting with four teams, from the original Ocean City groups, growing to 16 for 2007, 20 for 2008, and continuing with 22 teams for 2009, it has become a popular, fun day to spend and remember Justin the student, classmate, son, cousin, and nephew.

Our Mission Statement:

Through our involvement in the Justin Sheftel Memorial Tournament we will continue to honor the life of Justin, by helping others while striving to educate the public on the dangers of under-age drinking and drunk driving. Working with the generosity of our donors, our fund will focus on contributing to the community by supporting local charities, awarding scholarships, working with inner city local baseball and sports programs through our annual Softball Tournament held in a family oriented venue. We will do this with an emphasis on educating, giving back and making a difference in our local area all while having FUN!

While the venue grows and the community involvement increases all of this has taken place because of the dedication to Justin’s memory and all the tournament really stands for, honoring and remembering their friend.

The Softball Tournament supports the Memorial Fund. We have awarded scholarships and monies to charities totaling over $350,000, a number that has exceeded our expectations.  Starting 2006 we awarded two scholarships to Parkland Seniors continuing on to College, each scholarship was $2,500. For 2007 due to the support for both the golf and softball tournaments, we awarded a $5,000 scholarship to two Parkland Seniors. We also participated in Lehigh Valley Miracle League, in Justin’s Honor. In 2008 we continued to support the Lehigh Valley Miracle League, awarded two $7,500 scholarships to Parkland Seniors (for more information on the scholarships click on the tab). Over the years we have continued our support including in the last five years, support for the Allentown School District’s program the Drive. This program provides a baseball program for the middle school aged baseball players. The program is thriving and has now included elementary grades in a feeder program.

In 2012 we started something new, we decided to ask two teams every year to select a charity of their choice a donation of $2,500 will be made in their name . We also asked the team to participate in one activity for their charity. In 2012 the Sea Jays, captained by Kyle Zinkler selected the Boys and Girls Club as their charity, and they participated in building bicycles for Christmas gifts. Andrea Nuschke’s team The Home Girls, selected the Autism Society of Lehigh Valley. They participated in a fundraising basketball function. This is our way to include the players, and captains to see the end result of our hard work. We have continued this program and included a number of local charities based on the teams choices. In 2016, we donated to BikeWorks, and Meals on Wheels. Starting in 2017-2018 we will be choosing the charities with the planning committee’s involvement.
