Limited Tickets for Pappy Van Winkle and Weller Raffles
All proceeds benefit the Coalition for the Homeless to get Louisvillians off the streets and into housing
Louisville, KY (July 12, 2023) – In honor of the tenth annual Bourbon Mixer, the Whisky Chicks and Bourbon Brotherhood are thrilled to announce two rare bourbon raffles benefiting the Coalition for the Homeless: a full six-bottle Pappy Van Winkle flight, and the six bottle W.L. Weller collection.
One lucky winner will be the owner of all six bottles of the coveted Pappy Van Winkle Collection:

Pappy Van Winkle raffle tickets cost $100 and are expected to sell out quickly, as they are limited to only 1,000 tickets (a much lower number than other Pappy raffles!). They’re available now at https://www.bourbonmixer.com/raffle.

- W.L. Weller 12 Year Old Kentucky Straight Bourbon
- W.L. Weller “Craft Your Perfect Bourbon” Bourbon
- W.L. Weller Full Proof Kentucky Straight Bourbon
- W.L. Weller Single Barrel Kentucky Straight Bourbon

“Last year, the Coalition for the Homeless’ partners served over 11,000 people experiencing homelessness through shelter, security deposits, housing, healthcare, and eviction prevention work,” said Bruce Corwin, founder of the Bourbon Brotherhood. “We’re proud that every penny raised through these raffles will go toward this important cause.”
The raffle winners will be drawn on Saturday, August 19, at 9pm, at the tenth annual Bourbon Mixer, held at the Olmsted from 6:30-10:30pm. Winners need not be present.
