2015 Golf Balls Against Childhood Cancer
Chair Dennis Lane reported that we had 160 balls sponsored for the 2008 program. One hundred sixty (160) balls were sponsored at $10 each bringing in $1,600 which was distributed as follows: $500 to the winner, $500 to the Optimist International Childhood Cancer Campaign, and $500 to the Maryland South Delaware District Childhood Cancer Foundation. Reimbursements for program expenses accounted for the remaining$100 .
June is Optimist International Childhood Cancer Awareness Month
"GOLF BALL DROP" FUND RAISER
A bucket of numbered golf balls is dropped from a bucket raised by a crane over a hole. The ball in the hole or closest to the hole is the winner. Ties split the prize.
