    I want to let everyone know there will be a silent auction at Pinball Expo to raise money for Project Pinball which will be used to benefit Advocate Children's Hospital in Park Ridge, IL down the road. As of now items from over 50 vendors, collectors, artists, etc. (many listed below) will be available. The auction will begin Thursday and end Saturday at 4PM. Todd Tuckey will there with Frank and the Twins providing commentary, assistance, and announce winners. If anyone would like to donate, please just PM me. I will work to keep the thread updated and hope to see you there!

    And it is over for Expo 2019. I can't thank everyone enough for their donations, support, kind words, and love for Project Pinball. I was simply a volunteer looking to do what I could for a great charity. In attending a dedication earlier in the week, I was able to witness the immediate impact the placement of a machine had on the children. Thanks to everyone, the silent auction raised over $11K for Project Pinball.
