Police having softball tourney fundraiser for PAL

Alton Park will once again be the site of the Detective James Stanko Memorial PAL Softball Tournament, scheduled May 20. The rain date is May 21.

Named after the late Stanko, the tournament reflects his legacy in helping the Allentown Police Department build strong community ties, especially with the city’s youth.

Officer T.C. Cunningham is in charge of organizing this year’s tournament.

According to Cunningham, 12 softball teams will face off starting 10 a.m. and go throughout the day.

Among the teams playing will be representatives from the Allentown Police Department, St. Luke’s, Cetronia, Lehigh County and EMS personnel.

Basket raffles, Bethlehem Mounted Police and food trucks will be on site.

The money raised will go toward the PAL building on the grounds of the police academy.

For further information, or to make a donation, contact Cunningham at Thomas.cunningham@allentownpa.gov or 610-656-7444.
