We are delighted to announce that tickets are now on sale for “Pappy for a Purpose,” our second-annual fundraiser to support the charity’s programs and mission. Pappy for a Purpose is a raffle for a chance to win a full flight of Pappy Van Winkle Family Reserve Bourbon collection valued at over $18,000, though most consider the flight “priceless” because it has become extremely rare and highly collectable. The flight includes one bottle of each:

  • Old Rip Van Winkle 10 Year
  • Van Winkle Special Reserve 12 Year
  • Van Winkle Family Reserve Rye 13 year
  • Pappy Van Winkle Family Reserve 15 Year
  • Pappy Van Winkle Family Reserve 20 Year
  • Pappy Van Winkle Family Reserve 23 Year


There's more!

  • 2nd Prize: Weller 4-Bottle Collection
  • 3rd Prize: Blanton’s 3-Bottle Collection
  • 4th Prize: Heaven Hill 5-Bottle Collection

Tickets are $100 each and only 2,023 tickets are available for purchase. The winner will be announced during a Facebook Live event at 2 p.m. (central time) on October 15, 2023, which is the anniversary of the opening of the first Ronald McDonald House in 1974.
