Raise More Dough With a Golf Ball Drop

Tournament season is here! Are you looking for a unique way to sell more sponsorships, increase attendance and raise more money at your event? If you’ve already added a putting contest or shochopper drop ot-out, this could be the year to take flight by holding a giant-prize golf ball drop.

A golf ball drop is a really fun way to attract attention, increase community involvement and raise more funds! And it’s easier than you may think.

It all starts with selling numbered golf balls. Donors purchase balls in hopes of winning your grand prize – up to one million dollars, paid for by Hole In One International’s sister company, Odds On Promotions.

A few days prior to your event, Odds On Promotions will preselect a few winning ball numbers. On the day of your event, you’ll drop all of the balls you’ve sold onto a designated target from a helicopter, hot air balloon, crane or bucket truck. If one of the balls landing inside the target area matches one of Odds On’s preselected numbered balls, the owner of that ball will head home a winner, and Odds On will pick up the tab!

Golf Promotions Make Great Fundraisers – Take It From This Nonprofit

golf promotionsLooking for a great fundraising idea that will draw a crowd?  How about insuring a few golf promotions?  That’s what this nonprofit medical center in the state of Kansas did, by insuring a few unqiue golf shootout contests, with the assistance of not only Hole In One International, but our sister company, Odds On Promotions.

Here are how the golf promotions worked: Come the day of the golf tournament, 75 of the players, invited via exclusive invitation, participated in a golf shootout contest, where if any of them made a hole in one from the specified 155-yard par 3 hole, they would win $50,000… compliments of Hole In One International.

While unfortunately, no one ended up making the prize shot, there was still good news to be had.  That’s because 20 of the those players were invited to come back and participate in a second golf shootout contest — this time, from the par 3 18th hole on the course, which measured 165 yards.  The players were qualified in various ways.  The 16 golfers who were closest to the pin from the prior shootout contest were invited back, 2 players qualified via auction, 1 via putting contest, and 1 via a chipping contest.

If one of the twenty golfers managed to ace the 18th hole, they would have landed $1,000,000 for themselves and $1,000,000 for the medical center, which mainly focuses on cancer research and treatment.  That’s a cumulative $2,000,000 prize… paid for by Odds On Promotions!

While no golfers managed to make a hole-in-one, money was still raised for the medical center and fun was had by all.  Make your next golf tournament or golf outing a huge success by advertising the chance to win big, compliments of Hole In One and Odds On Promotions!  Want every single player in your tournament to be given a chance to ace a hole and win the big bucks?  Then check out our hole in one insurance!  Give us a call today at 800-827-2249 for a free, no-obligation quote on any golf promotions of your choice… or email us for more information or with any questions you may have!  We’d love to help make your next big fundraising event a success.

Golf Contests: Creative Ways To Qualify Players & Fundraise

Insuring a golf contest at your upcoming golf outing that requires you to narrow down your players in some fashion?  Whether it’s a Million Dollar Shootout, chipping contest or other insured contest, here are a few ideas from Hole In One International on how to pre-qualify your player(s) to determine who gets to participate in your golf contests, as well as how to increase fundraising dollars, come the day of your golf tournament!

1.) The Raffle
A raffle is the most common way to pre-select participants for your golf contests.  Players simply pay a fee, determined by the golf tournament committee ahead of time, to have their name entered into a drawing should they want the opportunity to participate in a golf contest.  Place the name of everyone who pays up into a hat, box, bucket, barrel, you name it!  Then, simply draw a name at random to see who the lucky qualifier/golf contest participant will be!  Want to collect valuable marketing information?  When creating your raffle tickets, have a space for each player’s information — email, phone number, address, etc.

2.) Purchasing Mulligans
A mulligan is an automatic “do-over” on a shot, meaning the player can play it again if it was a particularly bad shot.  Charge your players $x per mulligan during your golf outing — just make sure they’re aware that they cannot use any on the designated target hole, if a hole-in-one contest is being insured.  Whoever ends up purchasing the most mulligans will come back at the end of the outing for a chance to participate in your golf contests!  It’s that simple!

3.) Auction
Holding an auction as part of your golf outing?  Whether it’s a live charity auction or silent auction, people are always trying to gain the upper-hand… especially when it’s revolving around the game of golf!  There’s a good chance that the bids during an auction will go very high, generating some great fundraising bucks!  Have the highest bidder come back at the end of the auction to participate in your golf contest for the chance to win big!

Are the gears turning yet?  Can you think of any other great ways to qualify players and fundraise when it comes to insuring golf contests?  Feel free to share them with us!  Or, if you have any questions, feel free to contact us at 800-827-2249 or email us!

Poker Run Promotion at Your Golf Tournament Can Help You Fundraise!

poker run - fundraiserIncreasing your fundraising dollars can be a tough task!  Which is why we want to share with you how insuring a poker run promotion through our sister company, Odds On Promotions, can help you achieve better results.

A poker run promotion can be held either during your golf tournament, or  as a stand-alone event! Here’s how it works: First, pre-register your contestants and select five various sponsor locations to visit.  Contestants will then draw a playing card at random when they come across each of their five stops.  After having visited all of the designated locations, they’ll arrive at the final stop and enter the five cards they’ve collected into Odds On’s Lucky Hand Poker Machine.

If a contestant’s hand matches the preselected winning hand, Odds On will pay for the prize!  And that’s not all — Odds On’s Lucky Hand Poker Machine also has the capability of ranking all the hands – highest to lowest, enabling you to hand out self-sponsored prizes.

Odds On Promotions helps make insuring a poker run promotion a piece of cake!  All you’ll need to do is determine how much you’d like your insured grand prize to be valued at (poker runs can be insured up to $50,000!) and how many hands you expect to sell.  You’ll also want to determine what self-sponsored prizes you’ll want to be giving away as auxiliary prizes, which isn’t mandatory, but strongly encouraged.  No one likes to leave empty-handed, after all!

Once you have a plan in place, give Odds On Promotions a call today at 888-827-2249 or email them for a quote!  Also be sure to watch the video below.  Odds On can help you make the most out of your poker run promotion, as well as ensure that your organization manages to raise the funds it deserves!  Don’t hesitate – contact Odds On today!  All quotes are free and of no obligation to you!
