No tokens needed for this night of pinball, photography, nostalgia, and lots of fun. On Thursday, March 29, from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m., The Arc of Palm Beach County is taking over the Silverball Museum in Delray Beach, located at 19 NE 3rd Avenue. Fans of the vintage arcade game are invited to take part in the youthful excitement of this event.
The museum was created by Rob Ilvento whose daughter was diagnosed with autism. Years ago, Rob discovered that playing pinball brought his daughter so much joy. So he founded the first Silverball Museum in New Jersey, and opened a second location in Delray Beach a few years later. The venue serves not only as a place for the young at heart to enjoy their favorite childhood games, but also as a space that can be used for charitable events like this one.
For $15, guests will be able to play as much pinball as they want, while also learning more about The Arc. For 60 years, the nonprofit has helped children and adults with developmental disabilities live fulfilling lives.
“We are so appreciative to benefit from this fun night out at the Silverball Museum. It isn’t every day that you meet someone with this much passion for pinball, and the dedication to bringing a smile to their daughter’s face. It is a true testament of commitment to bringing joy to all, especially people with disabilities. We all look forward to a great night of sharing the life-changing services that we offer, while having a blast playing classic pinball, arcade games and, one of my favorites, Skee-Ball. We hope everyone comes out for the fun and games,” said Kimberly McCarten, CEO and president of The Arc of Palm Beach County.
Guests will also have the opportunity to view a photo exhibition titled “Pinball Wizardry.” Photographer Craig Gordon created a vibrant collection of abstract photographs after visiting the Delray Beach hot spot. Gordon will donate 10% of purchases from the “Pinball Wizardry” series, and the Silverball Museum will donate a portion of the proceeds to The Arc.
