Make-A-Wish Ohio, Kentucky & Indiana, and CHAMP Camp are teaming up for The Great Bourbon Raffle, a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to own six rare bottles of bourbon from the Old Rip Van Winkle Distillery.

On March 4th, 2022, we had to make some updates to this ticketing site and issue refunds to ensure we’re following our local raffle rules and regulations.

After making the needed changes, we are back up and running and you can now re-purchase The Great Bourbon Raffle tickets on THIS PAGE!

 

Tickets are on sale for $100 each and proceeds will benefit both organizations.

Both CHAMP Camp and Make-A-Wish Ohio, Kentucky & Indiana help make the impossible possible for children with critical illnesses and/or tracheostomies. Proceeds from the raffle will allow CHAMP Camp to build a wheelchair-accessible treehouse for campers to enjoy for generations to come and help Make-A-Wish Ohio, Kentucky & Indiana grant more life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses. Many children who have been granted wishes have also experienced CHAMP Camp.

Each ticket purchased provides one chance to win the entire collection of six Pappy Van Winkle bottles. There is no limit to how many tickets may be purchased by a single individual. Must be 21+ to purchase a ticket and to win the raffle. A total of 4,000 tickets will be sold and a winner will be announced on Thursday, June 16th at 12:00 p.m. EST.
