Strike Out Hunger with the Brevard Manatees!

Thank you for helping us Strike Out Hunger in South Brevard County, FL!

Join the Brevard Manatees for a Chopper Drop Fundraiser for the South Brevard Sharing Center in Melbourne and Palm Bay, Florida.


With your purchase of a $20 ticket, you have a seat at the September 5th baseball game, as well as a number in the Chopper Drop for a chance to win $5,000 or $1,000 dollars! 

When you buy a ticket online at you will receive a voucher for a free Limited Addition Manatees ball cap redeemable at Spacecoast Stadium the night of the Chopper Drop Game.

So what exactly IS a Chopper Drop? At the end of the game, a helicopter will hover over the outfield and drop approximately 1500 golf balls at a time. The golf ball closest to the target will receive $5,000, and the second closest will receive second prize of $1,000.

Don't forget that there will be fireworks after the game!

You do not have to attend the game to win, however, whoever purchases the ticket, will be the only person eligible to win. Due to the unfortunate event of a weather cancellation, we will still have the Chopper Drop Event at a location and date to be named if deemed necessary. With your $20 donation, $12 is eligible as a tax deduction.

Thank you for your support!
