We are delighted to announce that tickets are now on sale for “Pappy for a Purpose,” our third-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 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


Tickets are $50 each and only 1974 tickets are available for purchase. The winner will be announced during a Facebook Live event on October 15, 2024, a date that honors the anniversary of the opening of the first Ronald McDonald House in 1974. Any person 21 years of age or older residing in the United States where the raffle is not prohibited may purchase a ticket.

Tickets are available at:

  • Ronald McDonald House Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
  • In person by credit card
  • Venmo (please enter "Pappy Raffle" in the notes section — contact Maddi at 812-402-7642 x304 or maddi@rmhcohiovalley.org for ticketing options or with questions)

Drawing takes place on Tuesday, October 15, 2024 - our charity's "Day of Caring." Need not be present to win. Only 1974 tickets will be sold!
