Thunderballs Fundraiser

The second annual Thunderballs event takes place Monday, May 18, 9:30 a.m. in downtown Cumberland.

This legendary event features 4,000 golf balls rolling down Dunsmuir Avenue in an exciting race. The first 30 balls to cross the finish line win a prize.

First prize is $1,000 cash.

Thunderballs 2015 is a fundraising event for the Cumberland Community Schools Society.

This year’s event takes place on Dunsmuir between First and Second before the Empire Days Parade and promises to be great entertainment for all ages. Tickets are $5 each and available from Polka Dot Pants, Alley Cuts, Tarbell’s Deli, Mudsharks Coffee Bar, Riding Fool Hostel, Seeds Food Market and the Waverley Hotel.

Tickets will also be available on Village Market Day in front of the Thunderballs demo and Monday morning before the big event. All proceeds from this fundraiser will go toward CCSS programs, services and contributions.
