Ladysmith Days fundraiser gets rolling

Ladysmith is ready to get rolling to help fund the beloved Ladysmith Days.Fundraiser Darlene Kelt said the Ladysmith Has Balls event will be tumbling down High Street on June 25 at 12 p.m.The scores of tennis-ball-sized balls will be loaded into a dumpster and dumped down High Street. Then, it’s every bouncing sphere for itself.The balls will be corralled on the street and eventually funneled into a small tunnel at the end. “We capture the first six,” said Kelt, in case a ball in the Top 3 was not purchased. The Top 3 winners get prizes of $500, $300, and $200.Tickets can be purchased for $2 around town at various businesses including the Ladysmith Credit Union and the chamber of commerce.Money raised will go towards the Ladysmith Days celebration in mid-August, which may not be getting as much money from gaming grants as they usually receive.
