Win A New Pinball Machine @ Jax Arcade Expo!
« on: April 06, 2015, 07:31:37 AM »
I think a lot of you know by now that one of the main reasons we put on the Jacksonville Arcade Expo each year is to raise money for a worthy local charity - Dreams Come True! In 2014, we were able to donate $2500.00 in show proceeds to Dreams Come True and send Kristofer and his entire family on a Disney dream vacation. And we hope to donate even more this year!

Another fortunate side benefit from last year's show is that we met Dan Spolar (Mole) and came to learn about another great cause that is in line with our personal values - Project Pinball. While we were able to help Project Pinball last year with floor space and a meager donation, both Dug and I knew that we wanted to do more this year.

That is where Pinraffle 2015 comes in. Everyone always seemed to love this aspect of the Little Shop Of Games Open Houses - I know I personally dropped several hundred trying to win myself a NIB pinball machine! So, if you weren't able to win one at Curly's, here is another chance.

Buy tickets here: http://www.jaxarcadex.com/#!raffle/c1j9o

Tickets are only $50.00.
You do not have to be present to win.
You can participate as many times as you would like.
You do not have to wait until Jax Expo - Raffle tickets are on sale now!



OUR GOAL

Our goal is to raffle three new Stern Pinball machines. If we are able to reach our goal, we will have enough funds to purchase a new Stern Pinball machine to donate to Project Pinball for use in a North Florida area children's hospital.

Please review all of the raffle details and purchase raffle tickets on our webpage at:

Thanks in advance

It is really amazing that someone is going to take a beautiful new Stern game home for maybe only 50 bucks. I sure hope I can win one.

Cool! Bought a ticket.

I actually won a Judge Dredd at the TPF show years ago...but I was not there during the ticket being drawn and lost out on it! Easy come...easy go I guess.

Does it look like enough tickets will be sold for a drawing before the expo?

It's hard to say how the sales will go as we get closer to the show but as of right now we are not quite halfway there.  Last year we did a good portion of ticket sales in the last few days so that might happen with the raffle too, but who knows?

So how did we do at reaching the goal?
Did we raffle all three machines?

1 Machine was raffled off to a new pinball owner.  I believe the lucky winner picked The Walking Dead.  I was not able to attend the drawing as was fixing a pinball machine.

We did raffle one pinball machine and had the drawing on Sunday during Jax Expo and the winner was Chris Yates of Jacksonville, FL.  He was very excited to win and this will be his first pinball machine!

We have pictures and a video of the drawing on our facebook page and you can also watch the drawing on youtube.

A special thanks to everyone who bought a ticket, and in particular the people at the end who bought a few more to make sure we sold enough to make it happen.
