It’s been immortalized on screen in movies like “Office Space” and has served as the subject of countless daydreams — taking out frustration on the office printer or the pesky piece of old machinery that seems to be the bane of your workday.
Leave those 9-to-5 blues behind and relieve some stress — or adrenaline — at this year’s Smash Bash. Sponsored by Alpha Laser and Imaging, the April 28 event gives participants the opportunity to smash and bash a machine with each donation.
Money raised from the day of demolition and fun will be donated to three local nonprofit organizations: The Arc of Evansville, 4C of Southern Indiana, and Youth First.
Free food and drinks will keep participants fueled up and hydrated as they take on an evening of smashing and bashing, jumping in the bounce house, or taking aim at the dunk tank.
Mayor Lloyd Winnecke will be on hand to kick off the smashing at 4 p.m. when he takes an excavator to a machine on Alpha Laser and Imaging’s campus at 5815 Metro Center Drive.
Participants will have the chance to use a mini excavator to bash a machine courtesy of Southeastern Equipment.
