I have bought tickets to the other drawings, but the Walking Dead pinball machine holds no interest for me, even if it is an LE.
We had a 5 year old grandchild (our first) to die at Vanderbilt Children's Hospital in Nashville, TN a few years ago. The many months we were there during his fight educated us about a whole new world for select unfortunate peoples. It is a pleasure to say I just bought a #3 ticket.

Update: LE drawing is at 50% and drawing #3 for the Pro/VE is at 68%. Keep them coming!
So will they do the first 3 drawings the 15th ? Since they will be full? And hopefully fill more by the next date, should be an extra $1000-1500 with each drawing, should add up to a few more machines by the end.
All full drawings, with the possible exception of the LE drawing, will be done on the first drawing date. Any that fill after that date but before the second date will be drawn on the second date. All filled after the second date will be drawn on the 3rd date.
I am not sure what happens with any chances that are purchased for a drawing that has not been filled by the 3rd date.
I asked this question on the QA section on the order site, got the email saying we are not locked into the pin we ordered but could pick another pro (that is in production).
just bought a ticket for the 3rd drawing, good luck to all that have bought tickets, it is a great cause
Rumor has it that you are not locked into your choice as long as it's available when you win. I chose metallica, but Star Trek seems really cool. Will be a tough choice if I happen to win.
Interesting. I am in for Metallica in raffle 2 and I entered again in again in raffle 3 for Star trek for my wife. So now I can win 2 different pins. But maybe if I win raffle 3 and I switch it to a Metallica and tell my wife she didn't win.. ha.
That's pretty mean and shady.. I like the cut of your jib, sir.
Please post pics of the smashed Metallica when/if you win and she finds out
I'm sure our wives don't read anything we say on Pinside, thankfully.
I'm in for drawing #3! What a great way to raise money for a children's charity. I'd love to be involved with this in the Twin Cities area. I work for the Best Buy corporate office and we have a Geek Squad Precinct at Children's Hospital in St. Paul, where parents can get all kinds of free services. It's a great program. Check it out here:
here is the reply I received when I asked if I had to stick with the pin I picked on entry.
You will have plenty of time to decide which pinball machine you would like when you win. We are just asking for the information now so we can help Stern with the information of what to expect do to their supply and demand and you can change your mind between now and then.
Thank you for your support and good luck.

This 3rd 'Pro' one needs to fill up, so we can move on to #4 before 10/19.
Consider this a raffle/sweepstakes BUMP!
Again..great cause. Like I said before.....my son was at the Children's Hospital in Hartford CT after being born with Spina Bifida. They saved his life. Unfortunately during his birth my wife contracted a blood infection that ultimately took her life in 2011.
Anyways...I'm in for #3 for Star Trek and #4 for TWDLE
Let's go guys....just a few more entries left for a great cause.
Drawing #3 is at 91%, only 18 entries left.
LE drawing is at 83%, just 34 entries left. Better get in early today or it may be too late!!
Worth a shot to ask.
I was thinking this would be a great way to get non-pinball people into the hobby as they don't want to spend $5000 but for $50 it's an easy way to get in.
I am going to tell my father in law he's always up for a gamble, plus he likes pinball. I'll tell him to get IM VE
Only 10 entries left for drawing #3! I've been emailing the entry link to everyone I know that has ever come over to my house and said "Holy crap!! Pinball!?!?!" I told them this is the easiest way to donate to a great cause and have a shot at a brand new $5000+ machine.
I'm in on #3 for an IMVE.
I shared a link on facebook.
Not expecting to win, but allowing these kids and families going thru tough times to have some escape in pinball is $50 well spent IMHO.
This going to be a photo-finish between the Sweepstakes #3 with 6 left and LE Sweepstakes with 7 left.
