The Janeway Foundation’s Helicopter Ball Drop took place today on Wednesday, September 26, 1:00 pm at Bally Haly Country Club in St. John’s.

The winning number is:  25424

Tickets were on sale from July 31-August 15 at all Sobeys and participating Foodland and Co-op store locations throughout the province.

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 38,400 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 the Bally Haly Golf Club.  The golf ball in or closest to the designated hole was declared the winner.

Thank you to the management and staff of  Sobeys, participating Foodland and Co-op store locations throughout the province, Air Canada Foundation, Universal Helicopters Newfoundland and Labrador, and Bally Haly Golf Club for their generous support of this event.  A special thank you to all the customers who purchased a Helicopter Ball Drop Ticket.
