Over 1,000 golf balls dropped from helicopter in benefit for St. James High School band
MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (WMBF) - Over 1,000 golf balls were dropped from a helicopter in the Grand Strand on Saturday - all to benefit a good cause.
The event was put on by boosters of the St. James High School band. Tickets for the golf balls were sold last month, with $2,000 going to the person whose ball landed close to the flag.

As the helicopter hovered around 85 feet in the air, four full buckets of golf balls were released. After some cleanup, a winner was determined to be SJHS art teacher Janice McBride.
The remaining money raised went toward the band.
