IFPA and POP Team Up For Charity Tournaments!
We are pleased to announce that September will be POP month at the International Flipper Pinball Association (IFPA)! Tournament directors around the country will be holding events to benefit POP and its mission to improve the lives of children by sharing the history and excitement of the game of pinball. The funds raised in September will go towards our high priority projects including purchasing a van to transport games for charity events, ongoing outreach projects, and day to day operations at POP HQ where pinball is offered for free to kids everyday.
All IFPA rules regarding ranking and points will remain the same for these tournaments as any other tournament. The 30 day rule is in effect for this campaign.
“For the last three years, the IFPA has helped us raised funds for outreach programs, games, and our Portland HQ.” said Nicole Anne Reik, POP’s Executive Director. “The opportunity to once again partner with the IFPA for a month enables us to continue to generate funding that makes a significant impact.”
If you would like to run a tournament in your area, you can submit the details to the IFPA HERE: https://www.ifpapinball.com/calendar/submit.php. If you have never run a tournament before, or are interested in assistance promoting your event, we are happy to help in whatever ways possible. We understand that these events can be somewhat intimidating, but we have run a very large number of tournaments and we’ll do everything we can to make yours a success. We are also happy to answer any questions about our organization, our mission, and how we are going to use the money we raise. Feel free to contact Greg Dunlap at firstname.lastname@example.org or @heyrocker here with any questions you have.
