– Florida Tech seeks sponsors for its annual Sporting Affair, which takes place March 19-20 and includes a golf tournament, dinner and auction. This year,
the fund-raiser introduces the fun and visually dramatic, “Chopper Dropper.” This and all other Sporting Affair events support Department of Athletics
The Panther Invitational Golf Tournament is on Saturday, March 20, from 8 a.m. to noon at Suntree Country Club. The Sporting Affair Dinner and Auction are
that day, from 6:30 to 10 p.m. in Florida Tech’s Clemente Center for Sports and Recreation.
For the Chopper Dropper, a $50 donation will give a donor one golf ball, or one chance of winning. On March 19, between 5:30 and 7 p.m., the numbered balls
will rain down from a helicopter onto the Suntree Country Club golf course. The one lucky ball that lands in or closest to the cup will win 50 percent of
the Chopper Dropper proceeds for its sponsor-up to $25,000. The winner will be announced at the Sporting Affair Dinner on March 20.
