Nearly 600 golf balls were dropped from a helicopter to raise funds for the Fremont Health Foundation’s COVID-19 efforts Friday afternoon.

The Fremont Health Foundation’s first annual Golf Ball Drop was livestreamed on Facebook Live from the green space outside Methodist Fremont Health.

As part of the event, around 575 golf balls bought at $10 each were dropped by a Midwest MedAir helicopter, with nine of the balls landing in “holes” winning prizes.

“You’re going to help us meet the needs of all of our individuals who are part of our staff to buy supplies and medical equipment,” Fremont Health Foundation Director Shawn Shanahan said.
