VAN WERT — “It’s a Ball” drop at the YMCA of Van Wert County. On Dec. 23, the YMCA of Van Wert County will be carrying-out a unique fundraiser — a ball drop — to raise funds for youth sports. Hundreds of numbered balls will be dropped from a lift, donated by Ace Hardware, towards a small target on the ground. Tickets have been sold with corresponding numbers and the person who purchased the number which lands on or closest to the target will win half of the ticket proceeds.
Tickets are available until noon Dec. 23. The ball drop will occur at 7 p.m. Tickets are $5 each or $20 for five tickets. Each ticket gives the purchaser an opportunity to win half of the sale proceeds, with the other half going towards the youth sports program at the Y. Ticket purchasers do not need to be present to win.
We are really excited to be holding this event. The proceeds generated go back into YMCA youth sports and gives us the opportunity to provide activities to kids that may not be able to afford it.
Stop by the YMCA at 7 p.m. Dec. 23, to take part in this fun, worthwhile event. Information about this and other programs available at the Van Wert YMCA can be found by calling 419-238-0443 or visiting www.vwymca.org. The YMCA of Van Wert County is partially- funded by the Van Wert County Foundation and United Way.
