$5,000 Golf Ball Drop Fundraiser during the 12k’s for the Holidays Event!
Good Samaritan’s Golf Ball Drop Fundraiser was rained out on Saturday, July 1st, and we are happy that we were able to pair it with our 12k’s for the Holidays event on Saturday, November 18th. So, you still have a chance to WIN $5,000!
Wondering what in the world is a Golf Ball Drop? Well . . . first, you have to buy a ball (all will be numbered up to 1000). Then during Good Samaritan’s 12k’s for the Holidays charity run on Saturday, November 18th, we will take the balls up in air and drop all of the balls onto the festival field. The ball closest to the target or hole will win the $5,000 prize! Simple as that.
Online purchasing is now closed, but you can still get balls up until the drop happens at the event! Best of Luck!
