ELIZABETHTOWN, Ky. — Elizabethtown-based nonprofit Give 270, having recently achieved a significant milestone of raising $1 million for various community organizations and initiatives, is set to host its newest charity whiskey raffle concept: 20/20 Unicorn. Scheduled for Wednesday, Jan. 3 at 7 p.m., each $20 ticket purchased offers participants two chances to win from a curated assortment of 20 Buffalo Trace products, including the grand prize: a bottle of Double Eagle Very Rare.
Crafted in limited quantities by Buffalo Trace Distillery, Double Eagle Very Rare is a 20-year-old bourbon, double the age of the distillery’s standard Eagle Rare 10-year. Encased in a silver box and crystal decanter adorned with two sculpted crystal glass eagles, very few bottles were produced, with an individually numbered letter of authenticity included with each.
During the raffle, prizes numbered two through 20 will be drawn initially, with all tickets returning to the tumbler for an opportunity to win the Double Eagle Very Rare.
The 20/20 Unicorn theme is anticipated to be a recurring raffle concept for Give 270. Each event will offer $20 tickets, providing the chance to win from a curated set of 20 prizes from a specific distillery, including a standout rare “unicorn” prize.
“Through these unique raffles, we want to offer bourbon lovers the chance to win some seriously rare bottles while giving back,” said Eric Clemens, Board Chair of Give 270. “We aim to not only celebrate exceptional spirits but also raise vital funds for the betterment of our local area.”
The raffle is set to take place live on Give 270’s Facebook page and YouTube channel. All proceeds will benefit Give 270’s mission to support community, economic and workforce development of the Elizabethtown-Fort Knox MSA (Hardin, LaRue and Meade counties) by raising funds for other area non-profit organizations and local initiatives.
