Helicopter Golf Ball Drop Highlights Apple Festival

Sponsored by:

Sonora, CA — In the final Apple Festival event of the day Casey Taylor walked away with a check for $500 Saturday afternoon at the Mother Lode Fairgrounds.

Casey captured the “closest to the pin” helicopter golf ball drop as the final event of the day long second annual Apple Festival produced by Sandi Romena for the benefit of the National Alliance On Mental Illness for Tuolumne County.

The Treblemakers opened the festival with singing during the ten o´clock hour. That was followed by an apple pie demonstration by Sarah Pieffer of Sierra Glen, a performance by Thick Soup at 1:30, an apple identification contest, a poetry reading by Aleta Varela and finally the helicopter drop courtesy of Silver State Helicopters of Sacramento.
