Golf Ball Drop Recap

On Sunday, June 24, Music Director Daniel Meyer dropped 2,000 golf balls out a helicopter onto the field at UPMC Park following the Erie SeaWolves game.  Yep, you read that right!

Despite a lovely Erie afternoon rain shower, a fun time was had by all.  Proceeds from this fundraiser went to benefit our educational outreach initiatives, including youth concerts, instrumental petting zoos, piano donations and more.  

Thank you to everyone who helped make our first ever golf ball drop a reality, including the incredible staff at the Erie Philharmonic as well as our friends at the Erie SeaWolves.
