The Ellinwood Hospital Foundation is looking for golfers and people who like to win money for an upcoming fundraiser – the 2nd Annual Golf Tournament and Golf Ball Drop. The event was postponed last September, but is now rescheduled for Saturday, April 21 at Grove Park Golf Club, in Ellinwood.
The golf tournament is a four-man scramble, and the cash prize for the first place team is $300, second place $200, and third place $100. Golf, breakfast, lunch, drinks, goodie bag, and a raffle ticket are included in the registration fee of $75. Additional raffle tickets can be purchased, along with golf ball drop tickets.
The golf ball drop is a unique fundraiser: donors can purchase a golf ball for $10 (or 6 for $50); the golf balls are dropped out of the city bucket truck, approximately 40 ft. in the air, where they fall on the practice green. The first golf ball in the hole, or closest, wins $500 in cash; second $250, and third $100. The Foundation is only selling 500 chances.
Golfers must be registered by April 20. The public is welcome to purchase golf ball tickets and encouraged to attend the Golf Ball Drop at 1pm April 21. Registrations and tickets can be purchased online, at ellinwooddistricthospital.org, or by going to the front office at Ellinwood Hospital and Clinic. Anyone with questions can call (620) 564-2548 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
