Golf and more raises money for high school chorus

CARLSBAD — A brand new car and $5,000 are just two of the prizes at the Carlsbad High School Choral Booster’s second Golf Classic at The Crossings.There will be something for everyone at the CHS Choral Booster’s tournament Sept. 27. Golfers and non-golfers alike will have a chance to win $5,000 in the inaugural Helicopter Ball Drop sponsored by FlyBoy Brewing. The helicopter will drop 500 balls onto the beautiful championship course at The Crossings. The first ball in the hole wins the cash and the ball farthest from the hole wins brunch for two. It’s a win-win-win because all the money raised will help send Carlsbad High School’s Choral members to perform in Disney’s Candlelight Procession this December.

Toyota of Carlsbad has also donated a brand new Prius for the hole-in-one contest winner. This non-profit event includes putting, hole-in-one, closest-to-the-pin, and longest drive contests. Golfers and non-golfers can purchase golf balls for $20 for the helicopter ball drop. Everyone is welcome to attend the banquet dinner and hear the award-winning CHS choirs perform live. It’s a fun-filled fundraiser that directly benefits the students in the Carlsbad High School Choral Program and helps bridge the gap left by state funding cuts.

The CHS Choral Program is one of the few remaining programs in all of San Diego County and strives to promote awareness, appreciation, and expression of the arts in our community. The Choral Booster’s Golf Classic is way for local business and the community to help keep this award-winning program going strong.
