Philadelphia Phillies’ ace pitcher Aaron Nola, in partnership with Team Red, White & Blue (Team RWB), has announced his second annual charity bowling tournament at Brooklyn Bowl Philadelphia. #Powerjournalist Markos Papadatos has the scoop.

This charitable event is presented by Yuengling and it will take place on May 20th, 2024. This event, which gathers Nola, his Phillies teammates, legendary athletes, corporate partners, and devoted Philly fans, will support the health and wellness of America’s veterans. The evening promises unparalleled fun, competition, and camaraderie, all to benefit Team RWB’s mission to enrich veterans’ lives.

Team Red, White & Blue (Team RWB) is the leading organization for veterans and service members seeking improved physical or mental health through a supportive community. Team RWB uniquely combines in-person and in-app experiences, offering over 17,000 annual opportunities to build a healthy lifestyle that make a real difference on veterans’ well-being.

The event will take place at the iconic Brooklyn Bowl Philadelphia, known for its eclectic mix and recognized as “One of the most incredible places on Earth” by Rolling Stone. Featuring 24 state-of-the-art lanes within its 38,000 square-foot venue, alongside cuisine from Blue Ribbon, it’s a perfect strike of entertainment and philanthropy off the baseball field. Sponsorship opportunities are available, ranging from $3,500 to $30,000, offering various levels of participation and exposure.  

“In 2023, we were able to raise over $250,000 for Team RWB, and this year, we’re aiming even higher,” Aaron Nola said in a press statement. “It’s about more than just bowling; it’s about bringing together the community, fans, and veterans to share in a moment of joy and unity. Supporting Team RWB’s work in building America’s leading health and wellness community for veterans is a cause close to my heart, and I’m excited for what we will achieve together this year,” he added.

Aaron Nola’s commitment to Team RWB and the veteran community is unmatched. In 2023, Nola made a donation to Team RWB with every personal strikeout thrown in his season, ultimately throwing over 200 strikeouts in 2023 alone.  

“As the Oldest Brewery in America, we are dedicated to supporting the U.S. military and Phillies’ Aaron Nola’s efforts to raise funds and visibility for this great organization,” Debbie Yuengling, a sixth generation family member, said.  “Team Red, White & Blue does amazing work and is devoted to the men and women that have served as our nation’s heroes.”
