You don’t have to be a golfer to get a “Hole-In-One”

All you have to do is buy a Ticket

The Janeway Children’s Hospital Foundation is delighted to announce the 12th Annual “Helicopter Ball Drop” ticket sales campaign.

From Saturday, July 18 to Sunday, August 2 – $2 Helicopter Ball Drop tickets will be available for purchase at all Sobeys, Dominion and SaveEasy store locations throughout the province and at Bidgood’s in Goulds.

Helicopter Ball Drop Grand Prize: Two Economy Class tickets for travel to any Air Canada scheduled destination (some conditions apply) plus $1,000.

From a maximum number of 54,000 tickets, a preliminary draw of 1,600 tickets will be made. These 1,600 tickets will correspond with 1,600 numbered golf balls that will be dropped from a Universal Helicopter onto the green at Bally Haly. The golf ball in or closest to the designated hole will be declared the winner.

Thank you to the management and staff of Sobeys, Dominion, SaveEasy and to Air Canada Foundation, Universal Helicopters Newfoundland and Labrador, Bally Haly Golf & Country Club and Bidgood’s for their generous support of this event. A special thank you to all those who purchase a Helicopter Ball Drop Ticket.

All net proceeds will assist the Janeway Foundation to invest in the best modern equipment; staff educational opportunities; pediatric research and specialized health programs for the Janeway Children’s Health and Rehabilitation Centre – For All Our Kids.

The Helicopter Ball Drop will take place on Thursday, September 10, 1:00 pm at Bally Haly.
