The ALS Associationâ€™s annual Golf Ball Drop and Fund Raising Raffle will be held in conjunction with the ALS Catfish Classic Golf Tournament at the TPC at Wakefield Plantation in Raleigh this October.
We need your help to raise $15,000 through the hot air balloon Golf Ball Drop and Fund Raising Raffle to be held immediately following the golf tournament on October 13th. Up to 1,500 individually numbered golf balls will be dropped from a hot air balloon hovering about 70 feet in the air over a designated cup. These golf balls are being sold up until the tournament for $10 each to raise funds for the cause, and the golf balls landing closest to the pin will be eligible for prizes, including $1,000. (Click here for a complete listing of Prizes.)
Please enter the raffle by purchasing golf balls for your chance to win. YOU DONâ€™T HAVE TO BE PRESENT TO WIN. Click here for your chance to win. Complete and mail the form along with a check payable to The ALS Association to:
The ALS Association-Jim “Catfish” Hunter Chapter
120-101 Penmarc Drive
Raleigh, NC 27603
Please forward this information to your friends, family and coworkers. Weâ€™re also looking for silent auction items (gift certificates, in-kind donations), people who want to play in the tournament, and tee and green sponsors ($250 for signage on one hole).
Remember, ALS has no known cause or cure. Statistically speaking, nearly 5,600 people each year in the U.S. alone are diagnosed with ALS, which is five times higher than Huntingtonâ€™s disease and about equal to Multiple Sclerosis. The Association offers assistance through patient programs, financial grants for respite care, transportation and assistive technology, as well as access to a durable medical equipment loan closet and patient support groups.
