Nonprofit Give 270 is partnering with the Trent DiGiuro Foundation to host its latest online charity raffle, featuring eight highly sought-after bourbon prizes, including a complete six-bottle set of Van Winkle bourbon.
The Bourbon Strong raffle will be live on Give 270’s Facebook page and YouTube channel on Wednesday, May 31, at 8 p.m. Throughout May, tickets will be available for purchase to support the Trent DiGiuro Foundation, a nonprofit organization based in Oldham County. The foundation’s namesake was a University of Kentucky walk-on offensive lineman and South Oldham High School graduate who tragically died three days before his 21st birthday on July 17, 1994. Proceeds from the ticket sales will be used to raise funds for various scholarship initiatives in honor and memory of DiGiuro.
The foundation annually awards scholarships to graduating student-athletes at Oldham County High School, South Oldham High School and North Oldham High School, along with a scholarship for a UK walk-on football player. To learn more about the foundation, visit trentdigiurofoundation.org.
