Saturday, Oct. 7, 2017 is the 2nd Annual Salida Ballcano!
Salida Ballcano is an annual event where the Salida Council for the Arts partners with a local school to conduct a fabulously fun fundraiser. Proceeds (after expenses) are shared equally between the two organizations!
This year's fundraiser is for the Salida Montessori Charter School and the Salida Council the Arts.
Pancake breakfast will be served on the SteamPlant Plaza from 7:30-9:30AM,
BEFORE the “Ball drop”. The breakfast ($8/Adults & $4/Youth) will go to benefit wildfire victims.
Ball drop will take place down “S” Mountain at 10:00AM.
PURCHASING IS CLOSED...THANK YOU FOR BUYING BALLS FOR BALLCANO! GOOD LUCK!
You do not actually receive a ball (as they will be used again in future years) but are rather paying for an opportunity to win a cash prize if their numbered ball is one of the balls that goes the furthest.
There are 3 different sized balls and they will be numbered randomly so that everyone has a “fair” chance.
Following are the cash prizes that will be awarded to the 9 balls that travel the furthest down “S” mountain. The course that the balls will flow will be on the East side of “S” Mountain. There is a possibility the course will change but it will be obvious the morning of the ball eruption on Oct. 7.
$500 prize (furthest ball to roll down the mountain)
$250 prize (2nd furthest ball to roll down the mountain)
$100 prize (3rd furthest ball to roll down the mountain)
$25 prizes (4th-9th furthest balls to roll down the mountain)
Proceeds (after event costs) will be divided evenly between Salida Council for the Arts and Salida Montessori Charter School.
Winners will be notified by phone and email.
