Our event, “Drop for Duchenne and Fall Festival” will be held at the Quakertown Airport, Quakertown, PA October 3, 2009 (9am to 5pm), Raindate October 10th, and supported by Fowler Aviation, Inc. at 2425 Milford Square Pike, Quakertown, PA 18951. (Rain date: October 10, 2009)

2,000 numbered golf balls will be sold for $20.00 each. At the end of the event, a balloonist will drop them all at once from his tethered balloon positioned over a hole in one. The ball that lands in or closest to the hole wins first prize of $6,000.00. Should there be more than one ball that lands in the hole or is closest to the hole the prize will be shared. Second prize will be $1,000.00, third $500.00 and fourth, fifth, sixth, seventh and eighth prizes will win $100.00 each.

You need not attend to win and the event will be broadcast by PPMD over Skype so everyone can watch.

Tickets will be emailed directly to you from dropforduchennetickets@yahoo.com with "Drop for Duchenne Tickets" in the subject line.

We would really appreciate your support of this event to help raise money for PPMD so please help us sell tickets if you can.

It's a 1 out of 2,000 chance of winning $6,000.00!!!!!!!

For those close enough to attend there will be crafters, plane rides, food, music, tricky trays, silent auctions, games and contests for the kids.

If you know of any crafters interested in attending, set up is free, we are asking for a donation of an item to include in the raffles.

Hi Everyone,

We're down to less than 2 weeks til the big event. There are still lots of golf balls for sale. Our goal is 2000 and we have collected money so far for 518. That gives you great odds at winning the prize money. For $20.00 you have a chance to either win $6000.00, $1000.00, $500.00 or 5 chances to win $100.00. You do not need to be present to win. PPMD will contact you and send you your winning check. All proceeds benefit PPMD, either way it is a win/win situation. Please help us hit our goal and sell all 2000 balls. Instructions to purchase the balls are on the events page. You can purchase with a debit or credit card online. If you are local please come out and spend the day with us. We have over 55 Crafters/Vendors who will be set up all day. (One is a Stairlift Vendor who has donated a stairlift to be raffled off.) We have more than 80 Raffle Items, Music, Kids Games and Crafts, Airplane and Tetherered Hot Air Balloon Rides, and food. Help us support PPMD!!

We still need the PPMD members support to help make this fundraiser a success and who knows you just might be the one who wins the $6,000 first prize for a $20.00 golf ball.

All 2,000 balls will be dropped from a tethered balloon over a hole in one and the first one that lands in or closest to the hole will win first prize and so on and so on. Please email this to all of your friends and family and ask them to participate buy going to www.parentprojectmd.org/dropforduchenne and purchasing a ticket that corresponds to a numbered golf ball.
