LEWISTON — Central Maine Medical Center will launch its third annual Arbor House Helicopter Ball Drop at 4:30 p.m. Monday, June 10, at Martindale Country Club in Auburn.

The fundraiser, hosted by the CMMC Associates Volunteer Program, supports the CMMC Arbor House, a hospitality house located near CMMC.

Raffle tickets corresponding to numbered golf balls are available for purchase. The balls will be dropped from a helicopter. The individual holding the ticket for the ball that lands closest to the target will win a cash prize. A ticket-holder does not have to be present at the drop to win.

Activities such as a Vice Versa Putting Game, photo booth and TD Bank’s Plinko will take place during the social hour. Ticket stubs will admit guests to the reception where light hors d’oeuvres will be available.

The CMMC Arbor House was created for patients traveling long distances for care and for families who must travel such distances to visit with loved ones who are hospitalized. The 15-bedroom building has a common room, a fully equipped kitchen, dining room, library, laundry facilities, a patio and garden.

For patients and families from out of town, dealing with issues like housing, meals and transportation can become an expensive and trying burden. The CMMC Arbor House offers at no-cost a place for people to stay while coping with the challenges.

The ball drop raffle tickets are available for $100 for one chance in 50 to win $2,000; $50 for one chance in 100 to win $1,500; $20 for one chance in 400 to win $1,000; or $10 for one chance in 700 to win $500. Up to 1,250 golf balls will be dropped

Sponsorships featuring the sponsor’s name prominently displayed on signage at the event are available for those wishing to support the fundraising effort.
