PewterReport.com is pleased to announce a new partnership with Pinchasers, one of Tampa’s most well-known and loved bowling alleys.
And with the partnership comes an opportunity to make a difference in the community with five charity bowling mixers that will help raise money for a number of great organizations.
This month’s mixer will be held pm Tuesday, June 20 from 7:00 – 9:00 p.m. at the Pinchasers location on Armenia Avenue in Tampa. The cost is a $15 charitable donation per person (children under 10, cost is $10) and that allows Tampa Bay fans unlimited bowling for two hours, while enjoying FREE pizza and soft drinks courtesy of Pinchasers, plus a rewards card good for 5 more FREE bowling games – a $35 value.
This month Bucs great Mike Alstott will be attending the event and will be available to speak to and take photos and get autographs. Please note, there is a limit of one autograph per paid person attending the event. The money raised will go to the Mike Alstott Family Foundation.
“In the 2007 off-season, Alstott and his wife Nicole formed the Mike Alstott Family Foundation. The foundation’s mission is to uplift the minds, hearts and spirits of families and children on their way to realizing their full potential through various events, assistance programs and celebrations. The foundation works with various agencies and organizations in addition to helping individuals overcome life-altering obstacles.
Since forming the foundation, the Alstott Family has been involved in numerous community events including: Hosting multiple annual events at All-Children’s Hospital in St. Petersburg; Hosting a Sports Buddies Day for those involved in the Big Brothers / Big Sisters organization; Participating in many “Charlie-Palooza” Tournaments to benefit the Angelus House, a home for disabled children; Holding back-to-school shopping events for children of the Sallie House and Children’s Village; Preparing and serving Thanksgiving dinner to those staying at the Ronald McDonald House; Delivering Thanksgiving meals to local firefighters; Hosting a summer bowling party for athletes from Special Olympics; Funding local non-profit organizations’ projects through the Summer Grant Program; and hosting a holiday fishing party for children in the foster care system.”
In addition there will be raffles for a number of prizes, including autographed Bucs merchandise, gift cards, and even a bowling ball donated by Pinchasers.
At 8:10 p.m. there will be a 10 minute Q&A with Alstott and at 8:30 the drawing for the raffle prizes will take place.
“We are very excited to work with PewterReport.com and Buccaneers players, past and present, to offer a different fan experience and do some good in the community at the same time,” Anthony Perrone, the CEO of Pin Chasers and life-long Bucs fan, said. “Everyone loves to bowl, and what better way to get to know players, then when having some fun? Pin Chasers is very excited to work with PewterReport.com to offer fans in Tampa Bay a unique opportunity to have and fun and relax on the lanes with players and other fans while supporting worthwhile charities on a monthly basis.”
Cook discussed the partnership and the events designed to get PewterReport.com readers the opportunity to meet the PR staff, other readers and have the fans’ questions answered by Bucs experts at the events.
“Anthony and Pinchasers have been established in the local community for years and have a passion for making a difference in the area,” Cook said. “When we approached Pinchasers about hosting a PR Get-together, Anthony suggested why not have the event, but make it one where we can both give back? He didn’t have to suggest it twice.
“We are looking forward to having these five events over the spring and summer and have had a few Tampa Bay players reach out and want to get involved as well. There will be Tampa Bay players attending beginning in April, so fans will be able to come bowl with some of their favorite players as well.”
All ages and skill levels are encouraged to attend and help raise money and awareness for a number of causes. Start time will be at 7 p.m. but guests are encouraged to arrive early to register and get ready to begin bowling. Space is limited to 100 bowlers so please RSVP with you and the number of those attending.
Pin Chasers is a locally owned and operated bowling center since 1958. They welcomed the Buccaneers in 1976 and have been very happy to be neighbors in the community since.
