May 12, 2023 | News & Events

Some of the most hunted after bourbons in the world will help raise money for Junior Achievement of Kentuckiana through Delta Dental of Kentucky’s Pappy for a Purpose Raffle. The winner of this raffle will win one of each of the entire lineup of the famous Pappy Van Winkle bourbons, a total of six exclusive bottles.

For nearly 75 years Junior Achievement of Kentuckiana has served students with financial literacy, work-readiness, and entrepreneurship programming to inspire and prepare our young people for success in a global economy. Funds raised through the Pappy for a Purpose Raffle will help Junior Achievement of Kentuckiana continue to empower the next generation. The need now is even greater as the organization reverts back to fully in-person programming in 26 Kentucky and Indiana counties.

“We appreciate everyone that participates in the Pappy raffle and helps us reach our goal of serving over 47,000 students this school year. We are also especially grateful to Delta Dental for their continued support over the years,” said Junior Achievement of Kentuckiana President Jennifer Helgeson. “Not only will the winner go home with six rare bottles of Pappy, but they’ll be supporting our work and helping us make a difference in preparing our youth for success.”

Tickets are available for $100 each at http://bidpal.net/pappyforapurposeja. The raffle sales period begins May 10 at 9 a.m. ET and runs through Thursday, June 1 at 11:59 p.m. A total of 2,000 tickets will be sold and there is no limit to the number of tickets one individual may purchase.
