Golf Balls From Heaven At The Classic
The Carlsbad Education Foundation’s 12th Annual Carlsbad Golf Classic got off to loud start today at noon with the helicopter ball drop at The Crossings at Carlsbad.
Dennis Fritz from Carlsbad won $5,000 when the ball with his number on it dropped into the 9th hole. Buffy Richford, a representative from V Partner, the charitable arm of ViaSat, was in the helicopter, dropping golf balls onto the green below. . . The “Chopper Dropper” was just part of the Carlsbad Golf Classic which lasts all day with a golf tournament followed by wine tasting, dinner and silent and live auctions.
