Johnny Petraglia, a 58-year PBA member and 14-time champion, has been selected as the 2023 PBA Tony Reyes Community Service Award recipient.
Following his U.S. Army service during the Vietnam War, Petraglia has spent countless hours working with military veterans and helping to raise millions of dollars through his work with Bowlers to Veterans Link, a 501(c)(3) charity dedicated to funding recreation therapy programs for veterans.
During his full-time playing career, Petraglia visited VA hospitals throughout the PBA and PBA50 Tours. In November 2023, Petraglia celebrated his 50th year working with BVL.
The Tony Reyes Community Service Award recognizes a current PBA member who exemplifies extraordinary community service, charitable or educational contributions over the course of a PBA season. Reyes, who died in 2012, was an eight-time PBA Regional champion, collegiate All-American and the 18th player in PBA history to bowl a 300 game on national television.
