Pinball Hall of Fame Las Vegas needs HELP!

The Las Vegas Pinball Collectors Club is building a NEW home for over 700 classic pinball and arcade machines on the Las Vegas Strip. This project was started before Covid-19 with a financial plan to have everything paid for with existing cash, money from the sale of our old building, and new debt.

The new building is now 96 percent finished, and we find that because an almost total collapse of the tourist traffic in Las Vegas, we are going to fall short of having the money to finish. We have to be out of our old location by May 6th. If we can not raise more funds soon, construction will stop and the whole project will end with no home for all the machines. Our lenders will loan us no more than the 1.7 million we have already borrowed. We can't cut staff costs, as we are all volunteer. We have sold off dozens of donated machines and have limited new machine purchases to a minimum, just enough to keep our local customers coming back.

The loss in revenue due to closure for 12 weeks, having half our games turned off for social distancing, and a total lack of tourists is now over $500,000. There is a REAL chance we might not be able to finish without help. We started this project on a shoestring and have been VERY frugal all along. We are very lucky that the Covid has not infected any of us, but it has WRECKED our finances. Please help with a donation.
