Thanks to the generosity of Jack and Susan Shaw, hundreds of golf balls will be dropped out of their helicopter on Saturday, August 28th to mark the Sue Nagle Help from Above Golf Ball Drop to benefit the Branch County Coalition Against Domestic Violence.
The ball that drops the closest to the pin or goes in the hole will win $1,000, 2nd closest will win $500 and furthest from the hole wins $250. Golf balls will be sold for $10 a piece at The Golf Club of Coldwater, Wilber’s Furniture, Sauk Trail Trading Post, Prairie River Golf Club in Bronson, Iyopawa Island Golf Course, or by calling the Shelter House at 278-7432. Participants need not be present to win.
Following the drop Martell’s Restaurant, located in the club house at the Golf Club of Coldwater, will offer a cookout dinner, with a portion of the proceeds benefiting the Shelter House. Thank you to Jack and Susan Shaw, the Golf Club of Coldwater and ticket sponsors Monarch Community Bank and Graphics 3. If you’re interested in being a $50 Titanium Sponsor, please call John Rohloff at 278-6615.
All of the monies raised from the event will help provide services to those that use the Naomi Davis Home, Altrusa Teen S.H.A.R.E, and Laura’s Place. The Shelter House has a wide range of services for the community to take advantage of including 24 hour crisis line for domestic violence, sexual assault and stalking survivors, Legal Advocacy Program for domestic violence survivors involved with the criminal or child protective services system, and the Circle of Care program for families with school age children who are homeless.
Donations from area individuals and organization make it possible for the Shelter House to offer safe refuge, encouragement, support services, food and clothing to victims fleeing domestic violence.
The Shelterhouse headquarters is located at 220 N. Michigan Ave. in the Naomi Davis Home. For more information about the Sue Nagle Help from Above Golf Ball Drop, call 517. 278.7432.
