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.

The first mixer will be held on March 24 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.

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.

Each month, every penny collected will benefit a charity, and this month the proceeds will go to Bowlers to Veterans Link organization.

Beginning its 75th year of service, the Bowlers to Veterans Link (BVL) has held a premiere position in support of recreation therapy for our nation’s veterans.  With humble beginnings in World War II, and a long and storied history since, BVL has maintained its leadership role in providing recreational programs and services for those who have served our country. The BVL was formed and funded by league bowlers since then and is one of the most respected veterans charities in the nation. You can learn more about the BVL and support them at

“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.”

All ages and skill levels are encouraged to attend and help raise money and awareness for a number of causes. In order to attend and get in on the fun, you must RSVP
