Assistance League of the Columbia Pacific presents their 10th annual Golf Ball Drop at the Astoria Golf and Country Club, Saturday, May 13.

11 a.m. to noon is a free kids golf ball clinic and putting contest. The helicopter drop takes place at 12:15 p.m.

A barbecue begins at 11 a.m.; admission is $5 per person. Kids under 5 eat for free. A bicycle and gift raffle will be held.

Tickets must be purchased in advanced and are for sale at Holly McHone Jewelry in Astoria and from assistance league members. The ticket number will be put on a golf ball which will be dropped from the helicopter. Golf balls that land closest to the pin win a prize. Everyone is welcome to attend. Proceeds go directly to the assistance league’s signature philanthropic program, Operation School Bell, to purchase new clothes for the upcoming school year.
