LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Tickets are now on sale for a charity bourbon raffle hosted by the Louisville-based nonprofit The Wizdom Foundation, featuring several rare and allocated bourbon prizes, including the raffle’s primary grand prize: a five-bottle Buffalo Trace Antique Collection set.

Set for Wednesday, March 27, proceeds from the raffle will support The Wizdom Foundation’s mission to donate bourbon bottles to various charitable causes benefiting the Kentuckiana community. The nonprofit was founded by owners of Watch Hill Proper in 2009 so its passion for whiskey and the community run deep.

Other raffle grand prizes include a two-bottle King of Kentucky set; a two-bottle Pappy Van Winkle set; a five-bottle Weller Vertical; a three-bottle Smoke Wagon Experimental Rye Vertical; a two-bottle Van Winkle set; a 2022 Old Forester Birthday Bourbon; a 2022 (Spring) Old Fitzgerald 17-year; a William Heavenhill 9th Edition 15-year; and a 2022 Four Roses Limited Edition. The raffle will also include 15 bonus prizes, including five bottles of Weller Full Proof, five bottles of Weller 12 Year, and five bottles of Blanton’s Single Barrel.

“Proceeds from this event will go a long way in supporting our goal to make a sizable impact on the local community through our region’s love and enthusiasm for bourbon,” said Becky Howes, Executive Director of Wizdom Foundation. “Our mission is simply to help those most in need, and we’re eager to witness how the proceeds from this raffle can make a meaningful impact.”

The raffle is held in partnership with Elizabethtown-based nonprofit Give 270. After raising over $1 million in support of the Central Kentucky region through charitable gaming initiatives and signature events, the nonprofit recently launched bourbonraffles.org, a new platform designed to provide fundraising opportunities for the benefit of a broader group of nonprofit organizations and worthwhile initiatives. The Wizdom Foundation raffle, officially titled Raffle 001, is the first raffle hosted on the new platform.

“Through partnerships with organizations that share a mutual interest in allocated and collectible whiskeys, Give 270 seeks to broaden our reach beyond the central Kentucky area, thereby amplifying our impact on worthy causes,” said Kenny Rambo, co-founder of Give 270. “Collaborating with The Wizdom Foundation for this bourbon raffle seamlessly resonates with Give 270’s core mission, and we’re thrilled to launch the new bourbon raffle platform with an event that supports their cause.”

The raffle will take place live on Give 270’s Facebook page and YouTube channel on Wednesday, March 27, at 8:30 p.m. Tickets are $100 and will be available for purchase until 7 p.m. on the day of the drawing. A total of 1,000 tickets are available for the raffle. Subject to availability, there is no limit to the number of tickets purchased per person.
