Family Promise of Flagler County will hold a helicopter golf-ball drop fundraiser 4-6 p.m. Aug. 19, at the Hammock Beach Resort Ocean Course. All proceeds will benefit local homeless children and their families.
The event works like this: At around 5:30 p.m., a helicopter will fly over the driving range at The Hammock Beach Ocean Course, and the balls sold will be released on to the green area.
The owner of the ball that lands in or closest to the designated hole wins $10,000. The winner does not need to be present. The winning number will be published on the group's website that evening.
Participants can purchase an individual ticket for a $25 donation. Each ticket represents a golf ball. Balls are available for purchase at http://www.familypromiseflagler.org or at the Day Center, at 1500 S. Daytona Ave., Flagler Beach.
Family Promise of Flagler County is a 501(c)3 nonprofit, interfaith hospitality network providing temporary shelter, meals, hospitality, and case management for families experiencing homelessness. This is accomplished through the participation of local congregations, dedicated staff, and hundreds of volunteers. Sixteen local congregations are opening their doors to families who are in homelessness situations.

Yellow light times in Palm Coast remain steady despite rule changes
The Florida Department of Transportation changed its rules about yellow light timing two years ago, a move that went largely unnoticed until recently, when the state attracted national criticism for the change. Despite this, yellow light times in Palm Coast have changed little since 2008.
