The fifth annual "Charity Ball Drop," which has become part of the annual Community Foundation of Johnson County (CFJC) annual golf outing, offers unique opportunities to fund worthwhile programs.
The Community Foundation's annual Tee Off for Philanthropy | Team Up for Community golf outing will be held at Brown Deer Golf Course Monday, May 18. Registration for the golf outing and lunch begins at 11 a.m. with a shotgun start at 12:30 p.m.
The ball drop will be held at 6 p.m. Golf balls will be dropped from a Coralville Fire Department ladder truck in front of the Brown Deer Clubhouse to provide raffle ticket holders chances to win if their numbered golf ball lands in or closest to the hole. The four balls will have an opportunity to win up to $5,000 in prize money: first prize, $3,500; three second prizes of $500 each will also be awarded.
The cost of a raffle ticket is $20 each, three for $50 or seven for $100. Call the Community Foundation office to register for the golf outing or purchase tickets for the Charity Ball Drop at 319.337.0483.
Proceeds from this year's Charity Ball Drop will support CFJC operations. CFJC board members sell raffle tickets in support of the Charity Ball Drop.
The CFJC annual Tee Off | Team Up golf outing is the only golf tournament in the area to feature a Charity Ball drop. Organizers note many charity ball drops have been featured on YouTube videos.
