Video: Melanie, a helicopter, and a bucket of golf balls


LANSING, Ill. (June 17, 2022) – The Lansing Area Chamber of Commerce organizes a golf outing every year to raise funds for the Chamber and its charitable initiatives. This year, the fundraising was elevated — literally.

The Lansing Journal was invited to join Chamber member Connie Simon from HVAC Masters in a helicopter that was flown to Glenwoodie Golf Club to add extra flair to this year’s 50/50 raffle. Watch below to see full coverage of the high-level fundraising:
