The Rockford Park District had one of it's biggest fundraisers of the year Friday night and it was all in the name of golf.
The annual Golf Ball Drop took place Friday at Aldeen Golf Course. The event raises money for the Rockford Park District Foundation and youth sports in the area. The Golf Outreach Daily Values Program teaches golf and life values to children ages 5-18.
"It's more teaching life lesson skills and golf to kids who most likely don't have the opportunity to get on to a golf course or see what a golf club is," Golf Outreach Coordinator Mick Hockinson said.
The park district's goal for this fundraiser is to raise $20,000 this year.
