Music and Pinball Bridge a Generational Gap for Charity

Lucas Heiser plans to clean and recondition the WurliTzer Jukebox.

When the restoration is complete Heiser said it will glow a shiney blue just as it did in the 60s.

“You can purchase it and help out the kids, and get a beautiful machine in return” Heiser said.

Anyone interested can visit Heiser Restoration or find more information on their website www.HeiserRestorations.com.

The WurliTzer is one of the last jukeboxes people can actually see the mechanism and watch the 33 and 45 records change out and play.

The record section was covered in 1963.

The jukebox was donated to Heiser Restorations by the residents at  E. Dene Moore Care Center in Rifle, Co.

All the profits raised from selling the restored jukebox will be donated to Project Pinball.

“Pinball has been a way of life for a lot of people as a relzxing thing to do, but also therapy, anger management for some people,” Heiser said.

Project Pinball donates the machines to hospitals allowing patients, families, and even staff to use pinball as a form of therapy during the tough situations.

“There’s such a generational gap and we want to just close that and bring back that communication with people,” Heiser said.
