Started in 2012, the Dom LaBargo Memorial Scholarship is named for one of New York City's best bowlers, a true gentleman on and off the lanes, Staten Island Native, Dominick LaBargo, who passed away in 2011.
Dominick, an all-star kegler who ruled the lanes in the 1960's & '70's, is a member of four Halls of Fame, the Staten Island Bowling Hall of Fame, the Staten Island USBC Hall of Fame, the New York City USBC Hall of Fame and the Staten Island Sports Hall of Fame.
The Annual Scholarship Award was started by the LaBargo family to recognize student athletes for demonstrating good sportsmanship on and off the lanes. The award is presented annually at the Staten Island Bowling Hall of Fame Awards Dinner and is funded through the Annual Dom LaBargo Memorial Bowl-a-Thon hosted by the LaBargo Family. The 2018 Bowl-a-Thon will take place on August 11, 2019 at Rab's Country Lanes
