The Janeway Foundation’s Helicopter Ball Drop took place today on Friday, September 15, 1:00 pm at Bally Haly Country Club in St. John’s.

The winning number is: 06169

Tickets were on sale from August 19 to September 3 at all Sobeys stores across Newfoundland, Independent Grocers in Catalina, Lewisporte and Gambo store locations Bidgood’s in Goulds.

Helicopter Ball Drop Grand Prize: Two Economy Class tickets for travel to any Air Canada scheduled destination in North America including Hawaii, Mexico, the Caribbean and select sun destinations (some conditions apply) plus $1,000.

From a maximum number of 25,000 tickets, a preliminary draw of 1,600 tickets was made. These 1,600 tickets corresponded with 1,600 numbered golf balls that were dropped from a Universal Helicopter onto the green at Bally Haly. The golf ball in or closest to the designated hole was declared the winner.

A special thank you to all those who purchased a Helicopter Ball Drop Ticket and to NTV and OZ FM for their support.
