I try to not beg for things, but honestly, tonight I am going to beg my fellow Pinsiders for help. We are working hard to make Rupert's Kids Arcade in Shelbyville, IN the best it can possibly be. A lot of folks on Pinside have done their part definitely! Long story short, Rupert's Kids is a charity, and the arcade has helped that charity a lot.
However, now the arcade itself needs help in the form of repaired air conditioning. We are endeavoring to raise the funds needed via a special CASINO NIGHT on Friday, March 30 at 7pm at Rupert's Kids Arcade. It's at 48 Public Square in Shelbyville, IN. We have pinball machines, arcade games, air hockey, you name it.
This will be a 21 & older event. We'll be doing 50/50 raffles, but also more importantly for you guys call out tournaments where you can wish cash for your pinball and arcade skills (i.e., "Who wants to play Aerosmith? Throw your money in, winner takes half, arcade gets half.").
Wine, beer, and food will also be included in your ticket. I believe the beer is SunKing, though I am not 100% sure.
Tickets are $50 each. I know that is a hefty chunk of change but the air conditioning repairs are anything but cheap. And I know how much everyone here loves pinball and arcades. If you would be willing to help keep one alive in the upcoming blistering summer months, I sure would appreciate your assistance. You can PM me for tickets or more information.
