The Encinitas Coastal Rotary Club held its annual Golf Ball Drop May 7 to raise funds and support the Navy SEAL Foundation and other local charities.

The event was held at the Encinitas Ranch Golf Course.

A fun gathering (with drinks, appetizers and dessert) was held at the clubhouse overlooking the hole where a helicopter dropped the purchased golf balls.

The three participants who purchased numbered/color coded golf balls that were closest to the flag (or in the hole) won cash prizes.
