Would you like to win a portion of $70,000? For a suggested donation of $100 per ticket, you can be a part of Florida Tech’s unique Chopper Dropper event on Friday, March 11, at Suntree Country Club and have a chance to win $1,000, $10,000 or even $50,000.
In total, 17 cash prizes will be awarded at this year’s event, which is a key part of the university’s biggest fundraiser for athletics scholarships, the annual Sporting Affair XXIV, which also features a golf tournament, food and drink, a silent auction and more.
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.
Sporting Affair and Chopper Dropper benefit Florida Tech’s 22 sports programs and more than 550 student athletes by generating funding for athletic scholarships.
