The Scott County Community Foundation is hosting a Halloween Ball Drop fundraiser. This is a great way to support our community in a fun way.

Golf balls can be purchased for $40 per ball or three balls for $100. There is no limit to the amount of balls purchased, so you can increase your chances of winning through buying more balls! All balls will be dropped from a 60-foot bucket truck, courtesy of the City of Scottsburg Electric Department. The ball that makes it in the hole or closest to the pin will allow the winner to get half of the ball sales! The big event will be held Thursday, Oct. 31 at noon at Westwood Golf Course. You do not need to be present to win.

The other half of the ball sales will be matched through a grant opportunity from Lilly Endowment and will benefit the Community Enrichment Fund, an unrestricted fund that provides grants to nonprofits, schools and government agencies each year. The Community Foundation has awarded over $1.6 million in grants during the Community Grants Program over the last 20 years.

To purchase balls, please call 812-752-2057 or stop in the Community Foundation office at 60 N. Main St., Scottsburg. All balls must be paid for by Oct. 30. The Community Foundation has obtained a charity gaming license, Number 014770, to have this raffle.
