Thanks to the generosity of local community members Jack and Susan Shaw, hundreds of golf balls will be dropped out of their helicopter on Saturday, August 27th 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, Iyopawa Island Golf Course, or by calling the Shelterhouse at 278-7432. Participants need not be present to win.
The Clubhouse Bar and Grill (formerly Martell’s) Restaurant, located in the club house at the Golf Club of Coldwater, will also offer a cookout dinner, with a portion of the proceeds benefiting the Shelterhouse.
