Seabury Hall Project Graduation 2022 Golf Ball Drop

1 To Enter: For a minimum donation of $25* for 1 white ball, 5 white ball package for $100, or 1 limited “golden” ball for $100, a person, age 18 or older, will be entered in the Seabury Hall Project Graduation 2022 Golf Ball Drop to take place Sunday, April 3, 2022 from 11am – 12:30pm. Parking is available at Mākena Maluaka South Public Beach Access. Participants may enter more than once. Participants will be assigned a single or multiple numbered golf balls for each corresponding donation made. A Corporate Package of 100 white golf balls is also offered for $2,250.

2 The Drop: All purchased numbered golf balls will be placed randomly into a container and dropped from a helicopter from a height of approximately 150 feet onto the assigned target. The participant whose ball (either white or gold) land closest to the pin will be declared the winner of a designated prize and the participant whose ball (white or gold) is the furthest from the pin will also win a designated prize as outlined below.

3 Rules: The participant whose ball lands closest to the pin will be the winner of a designated prize as determined by the independent judges. The winner is determined by the measurement of the golf balls from the pin, and if the judges determine that there is a tie among the balls, then the winner of a coin toss will determine the winner. The location closest to the pin of at least four balls will be taken in case there is any question of eligibility, or a winner does not claim the prize.

4 Prizes: The gold ball closest to the pin will win a 2-night stay at the Four Seasons Hotel in Las Vegas, NV. The white ball closest to the pin will win a 2-night stay at the Four Seasons Resort in Maui, HI. The gold ball furthest from the pin will win a dinner for 2 at Mama’s Fish House in Maui, HI. The white ball furthest from the pin will win a dinner for 4 at Humble Market Kitchen at the Wailea Beach Resort. Consolation prizes will be awarded for balls next nearest the pin (2nd closest, 3rd closest, etc.). The number of prizes awarded will be based on the amount of prize donations received for the event.

5 Announcement of Prize Winner: The winner need not be present to win. The winner will be announced at the close of the Seabury Hall Project Graduation 2022 Golf Ball Drop event. If not present, the winners will be contacted immediately following the Seabury Hall Project Graduation 2022 Golf Ball Drop by using the contact information given upon purchase of their ball or balls. If the winners cannot be located or fail to claim the prize within a week (7 days) after notification, the prize will be forfeited and awarded to the next winner in line as specified in the rules above.

6 Alternative Process: If some unforeseen event prevents the Seabury Hall Project Graduation Golf Ball Drop from happening as outlined above, then the winners will be determined by the following alternative process: Within a week of the scheduled event, all purchased golf balls will be placed into a container and an independent judge selected by the organizers will draw the winners. First and second ball #s drawn will be treated as gold ball winners and the third and fourth balls drawn will be considered white ball winners. Subsequent balls drawn will be awarded the remaining prizes in succession.
