On October 14, 2023, the Brevard Alzheimer’s Foundation will host the annual Helicopter Ball Drop, where a helicopter will release up to 2,000 golf balls over Hole #9 of the Indian River Colony Club in Viera, Florida. The golf ball that is closest to the pin will win $5,000. Other prizes include an Apple iPad and a $250 gift card. All proceeds benefit the Brevard Alzheimer’s Foundation.

Rules and Regulations:
The golf balls will be numbered individually and assigned randomly by staff. We will email all participants their assigned numbers prior to the drop. The winning golf ball numbers will be available on our Facebook page immediately following the contest, and a Brevard Alzheimer’s Foundation staff member will immediately contact the winners.

You do not need to be at the event to win and the winners will be selected on Saturday, October 14th, 2023.

Helping Alzheimer’s and Food Insecurity

Alzheimer’s

Alzheimer’s disease is the disease that you don’t think about until it affects you, or someone you know, personally. It’s the “scary” disease with no cure. The disease that no one wants to talk about. It’s just too frightening to think about. If we did, we would have to imagine someone we love who is now a stranger, even to themselves. Not only a stranger, but someone completely incapable of taking care of themselves at some point in the disease progression. Completely incapable of the everyday things we take for granted. What if you forgot how to brush your teeth? The brush is completely foreign- you, literally, have no idea what it is used for. Someone you love patiently explains it to you and teaches you to use it, but just a few short moments after, it’s forgotten until you do this same dance tomorrow.

Food Insecurity

When the major of seniors became home-bound due to the pandemic, the Brevard Alzheimer’s Foundation started multiple programs to help at-risk seniors with no or limited access to food. Within one year, the foundation delivered over 1 million meals to over 10,000 seniors. Extensive research reveals food insecurity is a complex problem. Many people do not have the resources to meet their basic needs, challenges which increase a family’s risk of food insecurity. Though food insecurity is closely related to poverty, not all people living below the poverty line experience food insecurity (especially seniors affected by the pandemic) and people living above the poverty line can experience food insecurity.

Did You Know?

Nearly 5.3 million senior citizens currently face hunger in our country. After a lifetime of hard work, many older adults find themselves facing an impossible choice — to pay for groceries or medical care.

All (100%) of the money raised from the ALZBallDrop goes to direct services for those at risk and need food delivered to their homes. No middlemen. No marketing company. No admin costs.
