Raffle tickets are being sold, with ticket numbers corresponding to a numbered golf ball. On Nov. 7 at 1 p.m. the golf balls will be dropped from a helicopter onto a target at the Dale Meadows Sports Complex in Summerland.

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.

Raffle tickets for the draw can be purchased at Summerland Timber Mart, the Agur Lake Camp office or online at agurlakecamp.ca.
