Brunswick and BVL


The Bowlers to Veterans Link is an organization dedicated to supporting America’s men and women in uniform. Founded in 1942, The BVL has provided veterans at VA medical centers entertainment while recuperating from injury. Brunswick has an active role in supporting the BVL through event sponsorships and donations. The BVL now has almost $45 Million in funds toward helping our military family.

The PBA 50 Johnny Petraglia BVL Open was held in Farmingdale, NY this may and raised $50,000 for the organization. The BVL will have a presentation at this year’s Bowl Expo event in Las Vegas. Not only were the best pro senior bowlers in attendance, 550 local bowlers participated in the Pro Am event as well. This helped the event become a raving success for the BVL and for veterans who receive their services.
