Golf balls from heaven
September 27, 2005
This should be fun to watch, from a distance.
The fun comes Friday, Oct. 7 when The Youth Foundation kids off its “First Tee” program by dropping 1,000 golf balls from a hot air balloon onto one of the greens at the Red Sky Ranch golf course near Wolcott. Any ball that drops into the cup, could bring up to $25,000 to the winner, with the rest of the money going to The Youth Foundation.The point of the First Tee program is to teach children character and other skills through golf. According to the brochure, those skills include: honesty, integrity, sportsmanship, respect, confidence, responsibility, perseverance, courtesy and judgment.
Donors can buy as many golf balls as they want for $100 each. A grant will match that contribution until $100,000 is collected.Besides the big prize for the aerial hole in one, other prizes include a week’s stay at the Roaring Fork Club in Basalt, which includes two rounds of golf for four people.
Folks who buy 10 balls will be entered in a drawing for a one-week stay in a three-bedroom villa at Pueblo Bonito Sunset Beach in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico.For more information, call The Youth Foundation, 926-8905, or e-mail, firstname.lastname@example.org. More information is also available at http://www.theyouthfoundation.org.
