The NCHS Scholarship Foundation (NCSF) welcomes Walter Stewart’s as a title sponsor for the third annual NC Color Drop to be held on March 25th, 2023, at 10:00am. That Saturday morning, a sleek Bell407 helicopter, courtesy of HeliNY, will once again fly over the skies of New Canaan and hover over Waveny Park, safely releasing 2000 colored golf balls over a designated target. Each golf ball will have an assigned number. The lucky winners, whose ball lands closest to the target, will win one of the following special prizes: a Momentum Transend Electric Bike, a Pet Portrait by artist Emma Sims, a season pass to the Steve Benko Pool at Waveny Park, or an 84 Sports gift basket. The winning balls will be announced immediately. 100% of the proceeds will be donated to the NCSF for need-based scholarships given to NCHS graduates.
Throughout the years, Walter Stewart’s Market has generously partnered with the NCSF and recognizes the long-standing community effort to provide need-based financial aid for NCHS graduates pursuing higher education at the undergraduate level.
Spectators will be allowed to view the NC Color Drop from a safe distance in Waveny. Golf balls are available for purchase at www.nchs-sf.org/colordrop.
