Congratulations to the Winner’s of the 2013 Bocce Event


Dedicated to

Sue DeChirico We love and miss her and dedicate this event in her name as she sits with Frank watching over us.


Frank Valanzola

Pat DeChirico

In 2005 Frank Valanzola and Pat DeChirico wanted to help “Operation Shoebox, NJ”. They wanted the charity to be able to send more boxes over to the troops! So Frank and Pat created the Bocce Invitational! The two men traveled all over the state of NJ meeting with Italian/American clubs to present their idea. The clubs all loved it and the first Bocce Invitational was born! Frank being as energetic as he was developed the charity for the Bocce Ball event. He contacted as many donors and companies as possible. Pat was busy handling the back office for the charity and the event. Because of both of their efforts the first Bocce Invitational was well on its way! Frank and Pat involved the military establishment, veterans organizations, the Park Commission and private companies. The Park Commission really stepped up to the plate for the charity. They built permanent bocce ball courts at Colonial Park in Franklin, NJ. The event is still played there each year. The Bocce Invitational was extremely successful for three years, raising money for Operation Shoebox and other charities. The event had to be placed on hiatus in 2011 due to both Frank and Pat fighting medical conditions. Pat eventually recovered but Frank did not and passed away in 2011. The Bocce Invitational lost an outstanding, strong leader, great friend and compassionate human being. In 2013, the bocce ball event was resurrected by Pat & Franks wife Debbie and every year they will hold the event in his memory.. This year’s invitational will be bigger than the previous events and will be an annual event at Colonial Park in Franklin. And rest assured, Frank is directing the team and the event from Heaven!


The Bocce Invitational In Memory Of My Late Husband

Frank T. Valanzola

For those of you who have had the pleasure of knowing my late husband, Frank, you will agree that this Bocce event held a special place in his heart. I would like to thank all of the people that have made this event possible, especially Pat Dechircio, which without his help would never have been possible. I would also like to thank all of the family members and our special friends that always come thru for us. To my husband, one of the best things in my life is you. I hope that you are looking down on us and giving us your blessing. You are missed more than you could ever know.

Deborah Valanzola

Frank, May the memory of our dear brother and uncle, Frank Valanzola, live on in our hearts as a businessman, a humanitarian, and a firm believer in the retention of our Italian-American heritage. All who knew Frank were touched by his kindness, warmth, and generosity. Whether he was contributing to The Italian Tribune, scouting out a good Italian restaurant, or installing bocce courts, his ancestry was a favorite companion, a refuge from the storm, an anchor in the sand. From this villa in paradise, he had much to contribute to the New World, the United States of America. We are grateful for the short time that he was here with us. We miss you dearly, Frank, and know you are here in spirit with us always. Love Your Family, Sandra Valanzola, Thomas and Pamela Valanzola, John and Dawn Signorile, Gianna and John Jr. Signorile
