4/14/2017 12:49:00 PM Fund Raising Golf Ball Drop at American Legion
On April 8 the American Legion Post 113 held its 15th Annual Ball Drop Golf Tournament. Two hundred and twelve golfers participated in the four person scramble and there were just over 3,200 golf balls purchased for the ball drop. Eight balls went into cup. Jerry O’Connell from Gulf Port Mississippi had the first ball that went in. For that he won $2,000 while the other seven balls that followed his received $200. The American Legion Post 113 expects to net around $12,000 from the tournament, benefiting the American Legion Post 113’s Welfare Fund and Lemon Bay High School.
