Thousands of golf balls will rain down on the BridgeMill Athletic Club Oct. 9 as part of a fundraiser for Reinhardt University’s athletics program.
Reinhardt University athletics will hold its inaugural golf ball drop fundraiser Oct. 9, in which people are invited to purchase golf balls, which will be released from a helicopter for a $20,000 prize. The fundraiser will benefit Reinhardt Eagle Athletics.
The golf ball drop will take place at 6:30 p.m. with a helicopter dispersing approximately 2,000 golf balls on a designated target. Prizes will be awarded for the nine balls, purchased by attendees, that land closest to the pin and the one ball that lands farthest away. The purchaser of the ball that lands closest to the pin will win $20,000.
Golf balls are available for purchase for $100 each at reinhardteagles.com and include admission for one person to “The Drop” reception, which kicks off at 6 p.m. Additional reception tickets are available for $50, and golf balls can be purchased at the event until 6:30 p.m.
A reception will begin at 7 p.m. and includes heavy hors d’oeuvres, beer, wine and seltzers, with prize winners announced throughout the evening. A dueling piano show will begin at 7:30 p.m.
