The Frontier Toyota and Henry Mayo Newhall Memorial Hospital's "Drive Safe" Golf Classic is set for Saturday at the Valencia Country Club.

Proceeds from the annual event, currently in its 35th year, will benefit emergency and trauma services at the Valencia hospital. Last year's efforts raised $280,000 for the cause.

Attendees can purchase tickets for the $50,000 grand prize Helicopter Golf Ball Drop where a total of 1,800 golf balls will be dropped from the sky towards a target hole. If one of the 10 closest balls to land near the target hole matches a pre-selected winning number, the ticket holder will win a $50,000 grand prize. A first and second prize closest to the target hole can win $2,500 and $1,000.

Golfer registration starts at 7:30 a.m. At 4 p.m., golfers and eventgoers will attend an awards dinner and auction to mark the end of the day on the greens.

Anyone interested in player and sponsorship opportunities, donating auction items, purchasing tickets for the dinner and auction program or for the golf ball drop can contact the Henry Mayo Newhall Memorial Health Foundation at (661) 253-8082. To volunteer, call Andrea Hilton at (661) 253-8086.
