The Rotary Club of Ankeny and Rotary Club of Ankeny Evening are partnering again this year with the Ankeny Service Center to sponsor a "Golf Ball Drop" during Summerfest.  Our goal this year is to sell 1,000 tickets for $10 each.  Each ticket is numbered and a ball with a corresponding number will be placed in a bucket and dropped from about 30 feet in the air onto a grassy area with one golf hole.   The first ball in the hole wins $1,000, second $375, third $250, and fourth $125.   The net proceeds from this year's Golf Ball Drop will be split 70% to the Ankeny Service Center and 30% to the Ankeny Rotary Clubs.  New this year will be the ability to pay for tickets via Venmo! 
Thank you to Ankeny Sanitation for providing the prize money, Des Moines Printing for printing the tickets and Tim's Amoco Service and Cold Stone Creamery for providing the coupons on the back of each ticket.   The coupons are for a "Free Car Wash With A Fuel Purchase" and "Buy One Ice Cream And Get One For 50% Off".  
The goal is to sell all 1000 that Tom has distributed.   Ticket stubs and money need to be turned in to Tom or dropped off at First National Bank, 1205 N. Ankeny Boulevard by July 12th.  Contact Tom at with questions.
