Time to Get Your Balls! You could win $2000!

golfball_200Good Sam’s 6th Annual Golf Ball Drop Fundraiser is almost here! Get your “balls” today for your chance to win $2000. The “Ball Drop” is a part of the Mississippi Championship Hot Air Balloon Fest in Canton, MS.

What’s a Golf Ball Drop and how does it work? First, you have to buy a ball for $10 (all will be numbered up to 1000). Then at the festival a hot air balloon will take the balls up in air and drop all of the balls onto the balloon glow field. The closest ball to the target or hole will win $2,000! Simple as that.

You do not have to be present to win! And your purchase is tax deductible!
