Benefiting Our Active and Veteran Military Men and Women and Their Families



At this spectacular event, golf balls will be raining down onto a green at Marine Memorial Golf Course. Participants purchase in advance tickets that have numbers for their golf balls. You will receive an email with your electronic ticket numbers. As the golf balls drop over the hole, the lucky golf balls in the hole or closest to the hole will win.


* Rules & Regulations

The Ball Drop is scheduled to be held on Friday, October 6th at Marine Memorial Golf Course.  In the event of inclement weather, the ball drop will be scheduled on the next possible business day mutually agreed upon by Marine Memorial Golf Course and A Million Thanks. The ball that is closest to or in the hole wins. Distance to the hole is measured by the closest point of the ball to the rim of the hole, as determined by the judge. If two or more balls are equidistant from the hole, this will be considered a tie. In the case of a tie, the two winners will split the prize for the respective prize level. If a ball falls into the hole, it will be considered the winning ball. If two or more balls fall into the hole, the ball at the bottom of the cup will be considered the winner.  Only one grand prize and one second prize will be awarded unless there is a case of a tie.

The closest ball to the hole, or in the hole first, will win a prize of $1,000.00 cash, or 70% of Golf Ball Drop ticket sales, whichever is less.  The next closest ball to the hole, or next ball in the hole will win $250.00 cash, or 20% of ticket sales, whichever is less.  In the event of any dispute in the contest, the contest judge will rule and the judge’s decision is final and incontestable. The judge will be an employee of Marine Memorial Golf Course.  Only one grand prize and one second place prize will be awarded.

A Million Thanks reserves the right to refuse to sell a “ball” to any person. The winner need not be present to win. The Grand Prize will NOT be awarded if the winner’s payment is dishonored in any way or for any reason. The winner may be responsible for taxes and a Form 1099 may be submitted to the IRS. The winner agrees to permit his/her name to be used in any advertising, promotion, publicity or press release regarding the contest. The winner must sign a liability release prior to acceptance of the grand prize. Pursuant to the liability release, the winner will agree to hold A Million Thanks and any directors or members harmless against any and all claims or liability arising directly or indirectly from the prize or contest. Purchase of a “ball” indicates acceptance of the rules & regulations of the “Ball Drop”.
