Bourbon lovers have a chance to win a collection of six rare bottles from the Old Rip Van Winkle Distillery, with the proceeds benefiting a pair of organizations that “help make the impossible possible” for children with critical illnesses and/or tracheostomies. 


Proceeds from the raffle will allow CHAMP Camp to build a wheelchair-accessible treehouse for campers to enjoy, and help Make-A-Wish Ohio, Kentucky & Indiana grant more life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses. Many children who have been granted wishes have also experienced CHAMP Camp.
