We recently reported about 9-year-old Caine and his cardboard arcade, and we have an update for you. The short film that ended with a flashmob has spread Caine’s story far and wide. A scholarship fund has been established for his future education and has already exceeded $100,000 in donations. Caine has also received an offer to get a real pinball machine for his storefront. The owner of the Los Angeles pinball store, Pins and Needles, offered Caine his choice of vintage pinball machines. One of them is valued at $3,000.
He hasn’t decided which pinball machine to go with just yet.
If you aren’t close enough to visit the actual arcade (which I plan to do as soon as I can), keep an eye on the Facebook page for news and announcements.
