Justin Sheftel Memorial Softball Tournament
The 14th annual Justin Sheftel Memorial Softball Tournament is set for June 16, 2018, at the Lehigh County Athletic Fields. Twenty-two teams will be competing and over 800 friends, family and community members will be in attendance.
St. Luke’s University Health Network and Sports Medicine will be returning as our Presenting Sponsor along with Phillies Hall of Fame pitcher Steve Carlton. We are pleased to announce that Mickey Morandini, former Phillies second baseman and current club ambassador will be joining Steve Carlton in facilitating a Sports Clinic for middle and high school-aged students sponsored by St. Luke’s University Health Network and the Justin Sheftel Memorial Fund. The tournament promises to be an event filled with fun, food, softball and activities for all ages.
Through the Tournament, the Justin Sheftel Memorial Fund has grown significantly over the years. With its growth, it has been able to increase its impact on local non-profits and to deliver a message against underage drinking and drinking while driving. The Justin Sheftel Memorial Fund has awarded twenty-four scholarships to deserving Parkland High School students and has donated $400,000 to many charities throughout the community. These charities include the Allentown Drive Program, BikeWorks, Jewish Community Center, and the 5 Star Heart Project.
