With springtime approaching rapidly, many companies have already been planning events and fundraisers, but most of those events are not as successful as they have the potential to be. Many people don’t realize how easy it is to spruce up a fundraiser event with a little excitement.
Many golf tournaments also happen during spring. Golf tournaments are a great opportunity to raise money for a community. You can start or end your community golf tournament with a grand event such as a helicopter golf ball drop.
What is a Golf Ball Drop?
This kind of event is handled like a raffle. Every ball is labeled with a number corresponding with sold raffle tickets. Once you have sold the target number of raffle tickets, the balls are gathered and put on a helicopter. There will be a designated area where the helicopter can hover about 200 feet off of the ground and a place where guests can standby and watch from a safe distance. The passenger in the helicopter will then dump the golf balls onto a target. The ball that is closest to or in the target or hole wins the prize.
How is this Profitable?
Average prices for the golf ball raffle tickets range, but it is ultimately up to you. Some choose to charge a flat rate of $15 to $20 per ball, whereas others will offer package deals–the more you buy the cheaper they get. On average, a large event like a golf tournament can easily result in the sale of 1,500 golf balls. That makes for an automatic $22,500 from the fundraiser.
Not only do you have a large profit margin to work with, but you also attract more people to your golf tournament because everyone likes watching things get dropped from helicopters!
