Ronald McDonald House Charities of the Ohio Valley Launches “Pappy for a Purpose” Fundraiser

Evansville– Ronald McDonald House Charities of the Ohio Valley has introduced Pappy for a Purpose, a new 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 the 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 winner will be announced during a Facebook Live event at 2 p.m. (central time) on October 15, 2022, which is 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.
