2019 BVL TOURNAMENT
Thank you to all who participated in the 2019 BVL Tournament, both In-League, PBA 50, and the Pro-Am! With your help, we are well over last year's raised funds!! A combination of the funds came from the Maple center's In-League Tournament and this PBA Tournament.
Thank you to Jim Magazine and the Law Offices of Lucas Magazine for their sponsorship!
Here's what it's all about! Special thanks to John Weber and the PBA for their generous donation of $2,000 to the BVL on behalf of the Legends who bowled in our Clash. Thanks again, Johnny Petraglia, Walter Ray Williams Jr, Pete Weber, Amleto Monacelli & Parker Bohn III for being so generous!
Walter Ray Williams Jr. won his 12th career PBA50 Tour title, defeating Sammy Ventura 288-205 to win the 2019 PBA50 Johnny Petraglia BVL Open.

The Johnny Petraglia BVL Open
Professional Bowling comes to Long Island each year. Hundreds of professional and local amateur bowlers bowl each year in this great event, all in support of a wonderful charity, the Bowlers to Veterans Link!!
Each year our bowlers support BVL (the Bowlers to Veterans Link). In 2017, BVL raised more than 1 million dollars which supports non-budgeted recreational and therapeutic programs of the Veterans Administration. Bowlers like you are active partners in helping to improve the lives of active-duty and veteran service men and women. Please visit www.bvl.org for more information. Thank you for your contributions and participation in the PBA 50 Johnny Petraglia BVL Open.

Learn more about BVL
The Bowlers to Veterans Link is a national nonprofit charity (501/c-3) which supports America's veteran and active duty service men and women. It is also the sport of bowling’s oldest and most successful charity – raising more than $35 million dollars for America's active duty service men, women, and Veterans.
Since 1942, BVL has worked to identify programs and services to brighten the days and boost the spirits of our recuperating service men and women. BVL provides the ‘extras’ not funded by the government which helps speed recuperation and improve morale. Some of the programs, like the annual VA/BVL Veterans Bowling Tournament, are decades-old traditions (now in its 71st year), while others, like the “Welcome Home: We Salute You” events and Project Military Music, were just recently launched. BVL prides itself on identifying the needs of our veterans and providing programs to fill those needs in a cost-efficient and effective manner.
