The second mixer will be held 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 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, long time offensive tackle Demar Dotson and tight end Alan Cross will be attending the event and will be available to speak to and take photos and get autographs.

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.

The staff will be on hand to bowl as well, and talk Bucs football with our readers and guests. Come meet long-time Bucs beat writers Scott Reynolds and Mark Cook, and new Bucs beat writer Trevor Sikkema.

 At 8 p.m. there will be a 10 minute Q&A with the players and at 8:15 the drawing for the raffle prizes will take place.

“We are very excited to work with 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 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 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.”
