How To Do a Helicopter Golf Ball Drop

Add "WOW" to Your Charity Golf Event

A Golf Ball Drop is a tried-and-true method of fundraising, but why not UP the ante? The latest fad is the Helicopter Ball Drop, which adds even more spectacle, participation, and revenue.

Here are a few tips about how to do a helicopter ball drop for your next charity event.

1. Choose a reliable helicopter service. Find one online that has good customer reviews or look for a referral from other organizations. If you have good connections, maybe you can get the local news helicopter to donate their services.

2. Consult with your local parks department or golf course. Make sure you can get permission to land and that there is enough clearance in and around the area so it can be done safely.

3. Spread the word. A Helicopter Golf Ball Drop can draw big crowds so it's likely you can also get bigger sponsors and larger prize donations. You may be able to sell signage space on the helicopter itself.

4. Motivate your crew. Whether it's a football team or your church group, a Helicopter Golf Ball Drop is only exciting if there are LOTS of balls. Give rewards to the team member that sells the most balls.

5. Give yourself plenty of time. Because it's such a grand event and requires a lot of participation, be sure to set the date for the drop early and start selling tickets well in advance.

6. Keep track of numbered balls as well as customer information. This is crucial as the drop won't be successful if an unsold number wins a prize or the name can't be read off the ticket. Be sure to REMOVE all balls that haven't been sold.
