On March 24 at Suntree Country Club it will rain thousands of golf balls as Florida Tech holds its 14th Annual Chopper Dropper.
The event is a key part of the university’s biggest fundraiser for athletics scholarships, the annual Sporting Affair XXV, which also features a golf tournament, food and drink, a silent auction and more. The event is marking its 25th anniversary.
Chopper Dropper involves dropping 2,000 numbered golf balls from a helicopter onto a putting green, with the ball closest to the pin winning the holder of that number a $50,000 grand prize. There is also a $10,000 second prize and 15 $1,000 prizes, as well.
Tickets are available now for a suggested donation of $100 each. For more information and to purchase Chopper Dropper tickets, please visit www.chopperdropper.com.
