Drop the Ball Raffle information

The purchase price is one ball for $20 or three for $50. Each golf ball will be numbered to coincide with the number allocated for each ticket sold. All prizes will be awarded to those lucky individuals whose golf ball lands in the hole or the ball that is closest to the pin identified by the nine coloured flags placed within the drop zone area. Each coloured flag represents a specific item.  Please review the prize list below.

NOTE: If more than one golf ball enters the hole of any of the coloured flags, those balls will be placed in a drum, where the winner will be determined by the first ball out. Those remaining in the drum will receive a complimentary prize. If in the event no balls enter the hole, the winner will be determined by a measurement to determine which ball is closest.

Funds raised from the raffle will be donated to Georgian Bay General Hospital (Charity #: 11896 5789 RR0001).   Tickets are available in the Foundation Office at Georgian Bay General Hospital (705-526-4483).
