Pappy Van Winkle bourbon is internationally known and notoriously difficult to find. The bottle being raffled is a limited edition Old Rip Van Winkle aged 25 years. This is one of only 710 bottles available worldwide. It is presented in a Glencairn crystal decanter and housed in a wooden box created by Heritage Handcrafted using the oak staves from the 11 barrels that held this whiskey.

Tickets are being sold through October 26 and the raffle winner will be announced on October 27 at 2:00 p.m. on LABG’s Facebook page via Facebook Live.

“We are excited for this opportunity to spotlight our Pro Bono Program and the individuals who volunteer to help Kentucky families thrive,” said Joshua Crabtree, executive director.

The raffle, a part of LABG’s 2017 Pro Bono Awards Event Series, will conclude during ABA’s Celebrate Pro Bono week. “Although there can only be one raffle winner, all contributions made through the Pappy for Pro Bono raffle help us make justice for all a reality. In my mind that makes us all winners,” Crabtree said.
