3,000 golf balls were dropped Monday evening at the Gettysvue Country Club as part of an annual benefit for Alzheimer's Tennessee.
The public was invited to buy the balls in advance for $10 each.
A helicopter dropped them over a target, and the ball that landed closest to it scored its owner $2,500.
"We want to support the Alzheimer's community. Obviously there are a lot of folks out there that need services and education, so it's a great way for us to have some fun, increase awareness, and actually provide programs and services for folks in our area that are living with Alzheimer's," said Janice Wade-Whitehead, executive director of Alzheimer's Tennessee.
Alzheimer's Tennessee raises between $7,000 and $10,000 each year from the golf ball drop. All of it stays here in Tennessee.
