Be there on Sunday afternoon as thousands of balls are dropped from the end of the large Georgetown Fire Department ladder truck. Red White and Blue; watch as they fall onto the custom built turf field that has 5 “golf” type holes on the surface. Each hole is numbered and the hole marked number one will provide the winning number ball the $5,000 prize. Each of the other holes will end up with a winning number that could be yours.
You need not be present to win. We will notify the winners within the week. We need your phone number and email in order to contact you if you are one our winning balls. This is a joint effort of the City of Georgetown, Red Poppy Festival, Georgetown Fire Department, Georgetown ISD, the Georgetown Educational Foundation and Kiwanis.
One will win $5,000, but every ball sold is a winner in so many ways. When you acquire a ball number you are making a tax deductible donation. The funds raised in this event will be shared between the Georgetown Educational Foundation and Kiwanis. Other than startup expenses, all of the funds go to the students of the Georgetown ISD. No salaries and a maximum return of your donation going directly to benefit the children. Learn more on this site. Even if you don’t win the money or other prizes, you are a winner when you support this wonderful program. Georgetown Educational Foundation will fill teacher grant requests. Kiwanis provides books and readers to certain GISD pre-K – 2nd grade with over 4,400 books annually or multiple scholarships.
