We've already raised $10,000 from these raffles. We're using all of the money to open the FIRST Pinball Education Center in Frederick, Maryland. So far we have raised a little over $30,000 total of our $100,000 goal.

Once open our financial plan is sustainable and allows us to impact so many families with a public space. Your help is very much appreciated.

Roger Sharpe's agreed to help us achieve our goal. We're offering this gift for donations, and Roger's agreed to sign each of them, making it a real collectors item. These donations are tax-deductible.

I've made a forum post featuring the 40th Anniversary Painting

On the front page of Pinside, you can also read an article Cristin Gasson wrote to Roger Sharpe. Check it out!

Joe, curious what sustainable and timeline is. Interested in how we can further this opportunity in this part of MD. Right now you have to go to Baltimore, NOVA, DC, or PA to see a bunch of pins on location. Have any other children's charities interested in supporting... maybe in the interim on location where a pin could be placed and earn $$ for donations, local businesses, etc? Any details you can share? I thought you were close to signing a lease back in April 2015 in Frederick.

#111 3 years ago

In April, I had a space that fell through for a "pop-up" arcade for the month to engage for Autism Awareness Month. I'm talking to the local powers on a regular basis. We're working on the Roger Sharpe painting right now and with that success we will have completed our Phase 1 fundraising. This will give me the comfort level to talk with immediacy to acquiring a lease and opening. Tentative dates to open will be March - June 2016.

You're reminding me that I need to connect with the FSK Mall to get a kiosk in December. I'm not too interested in placing a single machine anywhere as its more trouble than its worth. I'd be happy to meet up this week, PM me.

Please keep asking questions I'm open to any ideas.

1 week later
#112 3 years ago

Bump. Lets end the November raffle in early November.

#113 3 years ago

Joe, sorry, last week was a busy one. I'll reach out to you. Would love to brainstorm.

Agree with pinmaniac... let's get this month done! And since it's the holidays... maybe a 2nd one!!!

#114 3 years ago

I honestly don't remember if I purchased a ticket or not for this round. Guess I'll have to wait and see if I get an email or not.

Anyone else receive their email? It would be nice to
know if my entry was even accepted.

#136 3 years ago

You all should have received emails. If you haven't please write raffle@pinball-edu.org and I will make sure you know if you are in or not.

#137 3 years ago

Wow, one person bought over $1000 worth.

#138 3 years ago
#139 3 years ago

Yeah that Webber dude really is buying up shitloads of raffles this and the last time. Well at least he got a color dmd last time?

#140 3 years ago

Is that pinmaniac? He was selling a color dmd that he won shortly after the last drawing. More power to him for having that kind of dough to play with.

#141 3 years ago

Dunno, but could seem like it. Selling a prize? hmmm.

#142 3 years ago
Quoted from Edenecho:

Selling a prize? hmmm.

What is wrong with that?

#143 3 years ago

Have any of the earlier winners ordered/received their games yet? Also, it seems these raffles are blowing away the other ones that have been on pinside and a lot of that has to do with the live drawings where everyone's entries are accounted for. I'm all for supporting causes but I have to question the legitimacy of some of the other raffles linked on pinside. Is there evidence that all of the entries are accounted for when I'm gifting money through PayPal?

Anyways, I have no affiliation with The Pinball EDU charity but I definitely like the raffle and cause. I'd even be fine if they raised the raffle cost to $50 like others to make chances better and appreciate how they are able to try and throw in extra prizes when available. I don't like to gamble as much these days but at least I can justify it in the form of donations towards these raffle entries. Good luck to everyone in the drawing!

#144 3 years ago
Quoted from Capinball:

I was their first winner but elected to trade my GOT Pro and pay the difference for an GOTLE, so I am still waiting for that as they haven't been produced yet. Had immediate communication from Joe after he drawing and nothing to worry about, all legit and super excited. I'll definitely post pictures once received.

#145 3 years ago

Did anyone else not win?

#146 3 years ago

Me

#147 3 years ago
Quoted from Capinball:

Did anyone else not win?

lol

#148 3 years ago

So who did win?
