SHAWVILLE June 1-3, 2018The eighth annual Do It For Daron 3-Pitch Tournament took over Elwood Dale Park in Shawville from June 1-3, bringing ball players from all over the Valley to raise money for a worthy cause.
Do It For Daron (DIFD) is a non-profit organization started by Shawville natives Luke and Stephanie Richardson to create awareness around mental illness and invite young people to openly discuss the issue.
