Kingman Photo: 50/50 Golf Ball Drop
The Kingman Mohave Lions Club held its annual 50/50 Golf Ball Drop at Centennial Park Saturday morning.
The event raises money for Lions Club projects, including a global initiative for health and wellness that aims to give people access to basic health screenings.
A crane dropped the balls on a baseball diamond at the park and the ball that stopped closest to the center mark won. Jon Hagenson of Forklifts and Equipment, one of the event's sponsors, had the winning ball and won half of the proceeds from ticket sales.
Many local businesses and individuals helped sponsor the event. Those who donated services for free included Judge David Huerta, Michael Myers of Michael's Drone Photography, Merten's Heavy Equipment and Repair, Centennial Park and the Kingman Daily Miner.
Kingman Mayor Dick Anderson, also a Lion, was among those present Saturday to watch.
The Lions Club's next event will be a Health and Wellness Clinic held at the Mohave County Library-Kingman on 3269 Burbank St., from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. April 16. It will include various free health screenings - blood pressure, belly fat, body mass index, cholesterol testing, vision screening and more.
