**UPDATE: Thank you so much for your interest in our Pappy Van Winkle Charity Raffle! All 500 chances have now been claimed. Thank you to everyone who participated. Winner will be announced January 31, 2018.
The Great Pappy Giveaway is like nothing we have ever been a part of at ABC Fine Wine & Spirits. We are thrilled to support Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida to bring this opportunity to bourbon lovers while we raise money for a critical need.
If you don’t know anything about Pappy Van Winkle, that’s okay. To put it mildly, it’s coveted by bourbon drinkers. People have gone to great lengths and paid huge amounts for a single bottle. ABC has had guests fly to Florida from New York and Las Vegas to buy just one at the store price. What’s most is important is where the money raised will go.
We are giving an entire flight (six bottles) of Pappy to Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida for them to raffle. Six bottles including the 23, 20, 15, 12, 10-year and 13-year rye could ALL be yours. Around our home office in Orlando, we jokingly refer to this as the Holy Grail of bourbon flights.
This idea came out of our search to find a way to support the ongoing needs of hurricane victims in Puerto Rico. What we discovered is a massive need to feed the large number of victims and their families who are moving to Central Florida desperately seeking relief.
Partnering with Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida was an easy decision knowing the incredible work they do every day, not to mention their exceptional 4 star charity rating. We have proudly supported their work in the past and knew they would help us take the money raised and provide it to as many people in need as possible.
You can buy a chance to win The Great Pappy Giveaway for $50 and we plan to sell a maximum of 500 tickets. Second Harvest Food Bank can provide 100,000 meals with that money.
We expect tickets will sell quickly so don’t wait. Share this link with your favorite bourbon buddy so they don’t miss their chance to win: feedhopenow.ejoinme.org/bourbonraffle. I bet they’ll share some Pappy with you if their name is picked.
Thanks for entering and thank you for supporting Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida. Best of luck and Happy New Year.
