The Kentucky Symphony Orchestra will its Annual Rare Bourbon Raffle on May 7 to help fund free summer concerts in Devou and Tower Parks this Summer (July – Sept).
The Party Source has donated a 5-bottle set (2021 release) of Pappy Van Winkle Bourbon, as well as 20 rare and pricey bourbons for the KSO’s annual fundraiser.
For 25 years the KSO held a gala event, which raised money to help fund the KSO’s free education outreach concerts for 260 regional schools, and the free, family-friendly park concerts which have become a summer tradition. COVID-19 shut down its 2020-2022 fundraising parties, so the KSO is counting on this raffle to fill the funding gaps.
The November 2021 release of Old Rip & Pappy Van Winkle yielded the usual number of 10, 12, and 15-year bottles, but the 20 and 23-year bottles released in November were fewer than expected, making this 5-bottle “vertical set” hard to come by in 2022.
Tickets are $100 and only one winner will be drawn on Saturday night, May 7 at 9 p.m. to win all five bottles (watch on KSO’s Facebook Live).
A second raffle will be held following the Pappy drawing with 20 Bourbons and 20 Winners.
Hard to find and rare bourbons include Smoke Wagon Rare & Limited, Michter’s Toasted Barrel Finish, Old Forester 150th Anniversary, Kentucky Owl Bourbon 2021, and 16 more delicious and scarce bourbons.
Tickets for this raffle are $25 and only one ticket will be drawn for each bourbon or lot (a few 2 and 3 bottle sets are included). The winning ticket will be read and attached to that bottle at the drawing.
The drawing will be held live and streamed on Facebook Live beginning at 9 p.m. on Saturday, May 7. Ticket sales end at 4 p.m. on May 7.
Winners need not be present to win. Winners will be notified by email and sent instructions regarding how to pick up their prize bourbon in person or via a representative with proper ID. (Northern Kentucky Symphony, Inc. Charitable Gaming License #2704)
