Hundreds to drop Saturday for benefit

Will you be the winner of a $1,000 Visa gift card on Saturday, Aug. 5?

You might be if you bought golf balls from the Port Aransas Youth Development Foundation (YDF) fundraising Golf Ball Drop.

In a news release, the organization said that hundreds of golf balls will be dropped at 10 a.m. by the Port Aransas Volunteer Fire Department from the top of a fire truck ladder.

The ball that lands closest to the hole will win the Visa gift card. The golf ball drop will take place at Jerry McDonald Field, located at Alister Street and Avenue C.

The proceeds from the sale will go to providing scholarships for Port Aransas High School seniors.
