Top Flight Helicopters is donating their services for the charity ball drop on Saturday.

Helicopter ball drop this Saturday in Summerland

The fundraiser is for Agur Lake camp

The Argur Lake Camp helicopter ball drop takes place this Saturday, Nov. 7 at Dale Meadows Sports Complex in Summerland at 1 p.m.

Helicopter services are being donated by Topflight.

Organizers ask that people not gather in large groups to watch the balls drop out of the helicopter. Because it’s up in the sky, there are plenty of vantage points to see the event happen.

Each ball purchased has a chance to win big cash prizes.

The winners of three cash prizes, of $2,000, $1,000 and $500, will be determined by which balls land closest to the target.

The funds will benefit Agur Lake Camp, British Columbia’s only barrier-free wilderness camp. The camp, west of Summerland, has wheelchair accessible cabins, docks, trails, picnic pavilion and fire pit area.

Tickets are $10 and can still be purchased by Summerland Timber Mart, the Agur Lake Camp office or online at agurlakecamp.ca.
