2014 Chopper Drop
You could win a new 2014 Ford Mustang and support a great cause by participating in York City Little League's 2014 Chopper Drop!
The Chopper Drop is a fundraiser aimed at helping supporting York City's youth. Each dollar raised will be matched by a generous local donor. It's important to note that the League (a registered 501(c)(3) is extremely efficient in its use of funding and has no paid administrative staff. We are simply a collection of community volunteers who strives to provide positive, character-building activities through Little League.
How it works: Balls will be dropped from a helicopter hovering over Santander Stadium on Aug. 31 (Sept. 14 is the rain date). One of these balls will be pre-selected before the drop. If the pre-selected ball is closest to the target, you'll win either $50K or the new Mustang! It's your choice.
Guaranteed prizes include $1,000 cash, $500 cash and a year's free electricity for a residence. Just by participating, you'll receive a custom Chopper Drop baseball in its own display case, two tickets to the game so you can watch the drop and a Certificate of Authenticity recognizing your support of the League.
Additional Rules: All prize winners (grand prize and otherwise) are liable for any tax consequences resulting from acceptance of an award. To claim the grand prize, the winner may be required to fill out an affidavit and conform to other requirements of the company that is insuring the grand prize.
Please make sure to patronize the key sponsors of this event. It's only through their generosity that organizations such as York City Little League can thrive.
Become a Sponsor
Sponsorships of York City Little League are vital to the league’s financial health and its ability to continue operation. The York City Little League depends on fundraising to help pay for the significant costs involved with annual operations.
If you are interesting in sponsoring the league, there are some guidelines that must be followed.
Sponsorship of a team must be, for the sponsor, out of a sense of responsibility to help the community. While sponsorships offer some benefits, the underlying purpose is to help the children of York City Little League.
As anyone who has played in the league knows, Little League offers an excellent opportunity for children to learn the values of teamwork, sportsmanship and fair play. It also provides a positive, structured environment so the children can grow up to become good citizens.
Sponsorship does not:
- Permit the sponsor to have any rights or responsibilities in the operation of the league or in the selection of manager, coaches or others. The sponsor and the local Little League are independent contractors with respect to one another, and neither has any authority to represent or bind the other in any manner or to any extent whatsoever, except as specified below.
- Give the sponsor the right to use the word “official” in connection with its sponsorship. Any reference to the sponsorship must make it clear that the sponsorship is with a team or teams in the Local Little League only, and NOT for Little League Baseball, Little League Baseball and Softball, and/or Little League International.
The sponsor has the right to use the following term in advertisements, posters, brochures, newsletters, etc.: “Sponsor of a team in the (York City Little League).”
