Artists will paint on almost anything for charity: skateboards, vinyl toys, cat statues, guitars -- you name it. Now an ever-growing slice of locals are contributing hand-painted bowling pins for the Wish for Wheels Bowling Pin Art Charity Show, a one-night affair on Saturday, January 14, from 8 to 11:30 p.m. at Marion Street Tattoo/Gallery. A full 100 percent of the proceeds -- each pin sells for $100 -- will benefit WFW, a nonprofit organization that provides bikes and helmets to kindergartners.

To add to the fun, Chad Price of Drag the River will provide live music, and bowling-alley snacks and PBR will be served. Gallery manager Emily Francis says the pins are still rolling in, so there'll be plenty to choose from (if you can't attend, you can still make a donation via PayPal online. Here's a sampler of what to expect if you go:

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
