- About the Show
Project Pinball Charity is a registered 501(c)(3)charity that places pinball machines in the Children’s Hospitals and Ronald McDonald Homes across the US.
The Project Pinball Charity Group, Inc. is dedicated to providing recreational relief to our small patients and their families, as well as, the physicians and nurses who care for them at our local Children’s Hospitals and Ronald McDonald Houses. A pinball machine is a powerful instrument that offers therapeutic benefits which fit perfectly with the dynamics of a hospital or Ronald McDonald House. It helps keep patients active and mobile while also providing amusement. We provide all the equipment, parts, supplies, and the regular maintenance at no cost to the Children’s Hospital or Ronald McDonald House. We are finding out with every dedication and every testimony how powerful one pinball machine in the right setting can be! This Spiderman Pinball machine, by Stern Pinball, was a memorial gift donated to the hospital in the memory of Jimmy Schneeberger February 17, 1989 – April 13, 2000. It just wasn’t right to see this memorial gift in such disrepair so we decided to change that. We have made a commitment to restore the machine and keep it on a regular maintenance schedule. This pinball machine gives the young patients the motivation to get back on their feet and it also provides the family members of the patients and the support staff a little recreational lift from time to time. Our goal at Project Pinball Charity Group, Inc. is to place a pinball machine in every Children’s Hospital and Ronald McDonald House across the United States. Project Pinball educates individuals on the fundamentals of the pinball machine and its uses as a beneficial tool to be used for their patients, parents, doctors, nurses, and other physician’s needs. We place every pinball machine on location, the complete set-up, provide simple operational guidelines, supply contact information if in case of a malfunction or stuck ball, and introduce dedicated volunteers after background checks and paperwork is cleared.
