IFPA Project Pinball Fundraiser Campaign – July 2014

untitledFollowing the success of the fundraiser campaigns for both Barry Oursler and Python Anghelo, the IFPA is proud to announce that we are teaming up with Project Pinball to help raise funds for their charity. July 2014 will be "Project Pinball" month at the IFPA.

Similar to the other fundraiser campaigns, the IFPA plans on treating each of these Project Pinball tournaments as a unique event, worth full value WPPR points, even if a particular location is already hosting another annual event in 2014. Get in touch with the IFPA at if you're interested in setting up an event and we'll work with you on getting it added to the IFPA calendar. We hope to set up events nationwide and use competitive pinball as a way to help raise funds for this great charity. The tournament must be scheduled to be played in the month of July to qualify.

Below is an announcement from Daniel Spolar of Project Pinball:

Project Pinball Charity is looking at putting on a month long fundraiser for its “placing pinball machine across the globe campaign”. This fundraiser will starting July 1st and running until July with the help from our friends at the International Flipper Pinball Association.

Before I get too far ahead, I would like to give a quick and brief description of what Project Pinball Charity Group is and what we do. Simple- Project Pinball puts pinball machines in the Children’s Hospitals at no cost to the hospitals. Plus we do all the maintenance and upkeep on a monthly basis to keep these machines up and running.
