Local Family Honors Father-In-Law With Unique Donation

Denny Desanto has organized a unique fundraiser for the Lycoming County United Way (LCUW) in memory of his late father in-law, Robert Shangraw.  Bob, who worked with countless non-profits over the years, was most recently honored by the Lycoming County United Way with the 2014 Douglas C. Dickey Humanitarian Award. The award, given annually to an individual whose dedication, commitment, and outstanding leadership have made a major contribution to the welfare of Lycoming County, is considered the local United Way’s most prestigious award.

In cooperation with Roberto Verigood and the Facebook Sports Illustrated club, this private event will allow collectors and the public limited signed copies of the May 8th, 1989 issue featuring local high school pitching phenom Jon Peters on the cover.  Jon has graciously agreed to sign covers and the group will donate 100% of the proceeds from the sale to the Lycoming County United Way in Bob’s memory.  Denny Desanto told LCUW President Ron Frick, “Bob always told my wife Nancy and I that it was not how much you give, but the love you put into helping others out.  We both loved Bob and miss him a lot, but this is what he would want us to do and he led by example.”

If you are interested in buying an issue please contact Denny Desanto.  You may also donate at and click the “DONATE NOW” button on the top right corner of the home page.

Thank You Denny, Nancy and Roberto for your generous support!
