Golf Ball Drop

The Golf Ball Drop is an annual event organized by Independent Living Services, the purpose of which is to raise funds, awareness, and foster partnerships between Independent Living Services and surrounding businesses in the community. Every year, golf balls are made available to the public for purchase through donations. These balls are given a number which corresponds to the purchasers receipt number. On the day of the drop, these balls are dropped from a hot air balloon over a target hole. The owner of the ball that lands in or closest to the target hole wins a cash amount.

This event has provided ILS with over $60,000 in donations over the past five years and continues to help Independent Living Services match grants and other opportunities that make transportation, housing, employment, as well as other programs possible that are offered to our consumers.
