Ping-Pong for Prizes and Charity!

Posted by Clare Gordon on Fri, Jun 14, 2013 at 1:59 PM

Partnering with a ping-pong event group called Pips & Bounce, adidas is throwing a party for Children's Healing Art Project (CHAP) tomorrow, June 15, and it's appropriately game-centric. $10 admission ($8 for students) gets you into this feel-good shindig, 100% of the proceeds from which go directly to a foundation whose efforts center around "critically ill, chronically ill and disabled children (and their loved ones) with programs that strengthen encourage and inspire." This great cause is promoted with all the perks of a good benefit, like goodie bags for early-birds, prizes, snacks from kOi Fusion, free beer from 4-6, a live DJ, and most importantly, ping-pong. Also, Olympic ping-pong players—PLAYING PING-PONG.

The fundraiser goes from 3-9 pm at the adidas Village (5055 N Greeley). Be there or be having way less fun tomorrow afternoon, especially if it's sunny. And did I mention all attendees get a pass to the adidas Village store good for 50% off? Stock up on cheap(er) sneakers while you're at it.
