2022 Softball Tournament IS ON!

Corner of Broadway &
Parkway Road

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

Mission Statement:

To celebrate Justin by providing athletic and educational opportunities for undeserved youth in the greater Lehigh Valley 

YES WE ARE ON…we will be hosting the 18th 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 – canceling 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 were able to hold the Tournament in 2020, with 18 teams, 16 men and 2 women.  It was a day to enjoy, outside, seeing friends and family again, and playing ball! 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 2021 with updates for all scholarship winners 

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, the sponsorship dollars are earmarked 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.  For more information on our scholarship winners, non profits and additional events follow the links below:

Leave Her Wild
Creating one of a kind, hand-knit beanies, headbands and more.

Hello there…it’s Barb Deane, let me introduce myself to some that may know me and others that may not. I have lived in the Lehigh Valley for over 30 years now, raised our family here and it is home. I have been involved with the Justin Sheftel Memorial Fund since the inception and have been honored to be a part of this amazing organization. I was inspired by my oldest son’s girlfriend who was a knitter, she gave me some encouraging words and some free patterns. My mom crocheted for years and so many were blessed with her afghans. I knitted a bit as a young girl but hadn’t done it for so long. I was looking for a way to get off my phone at night so I bought some needles, yarn and I started. I am a winter lover and wear beanies so thought I would give them a try and make a few for myself. Well I was hooked!! I practiced for a year giving away most of the things I made and my friends were enjoying my new outlet. Christmas of 2021 came around and people were asking for special colors and using them as Christmas gifts so really that is how my business started. It’s been growing ever since and I feel very blessed that people are enjoying what I make. I started posting photos of my finished products on Facebook and Instagram and the rest is history. I enjoy trying new yarns and new patterns and seeing what people like wearing. I value handmade products and I see now that others also value them. This is good for all of us.
