It was a Saturday afternoon designed for family fun at Lake Clementia Park.  The Kiwanis Club fundraiser for Project Eliminate, a global campaign to eliminate maternal neonatal tetanus, featured games for the children, hot dogs, popcorn, snow cones, raffle prizes, refreshments, music by the Crystal Image Band, and flyovers by a shiny black helicopter that showered the amphitheater with golf balls.  The helicopter made two trips to drop 4,415 golf balls for a dramatic conclusion to the day’s festivities. Half a dozen scored a hole-in-one. Contest officials determined the ball belonging to Dianne Mattar went in first, winning her the $5,000 grand prize. Mattar said she had purchased 20 golf balls for the event because “It’s such a wonderful cause.”
