Sometimes successfully, but often times not successfully.

Ball Droppers is the Nation’s first, and only, helicopter golf ball dropping organization. They coordinate and administer fundraising events for non-profits and groups raising money by dropping golf balls from helicopters!
How it works– People ‘buy’ golf balls and like a raffle ticket, then are given a unique number to identify which golf balls are theirs. Then, Ball Droppers helps provide the helicopter to drop 1000’s of numbered golf balls onto a target, with the closest balls to the target being identified as the winners!
The testimonials don’t lie!.. it’s a ton of fun and it generates a ton of excitement (and you raise more money at your fundraising event!)
