Pinballs for Pink

The Vail Pinball Association places classic games from a private collection of American pinball machines to raise money at local businesses to benefit local non-profit charity. Each pinball machine is set for one play per quarter. VPA has collected over $10,000 in quarters and distributed 100 percent of the money to Eagle Valley nonprofits during the past few years. Now with an increase of interest and success the VPA has doubled the games on location for public play. Starting right now you can put your head down and smack some balls at Route 6 Cafe in Eagle-Vail and Altitude Billiards & Sports Club aka "The Dude" in Evergreen Vail. A special thank you to the GREAT patrons at Kirby Cosmos, Magustos, and Crazy Mtn Brewery. Your 'chump change' collectively make a HUGE difference to people in need. VPA has given money to local non-profits KLNX-LP 107.9 FM Radio Free Minturn, Vail Mtn. Rescue Group, Public Access TV5, Pink Vail and Eagle County Humane Society.
