Ticket sales benefit The Dragonfly Foundation and Mason-Deerfield Rotary Club
CINCINNATI—The Dragonfly Foundation is one of two organizations benefitting from the raffle of five coveted bottles of Pappy Van Winkle and four two-bottle W.L. Weller Bourbon sets. The opportunity to win one of five prizes in the raffle is hosted by Cork ‘n Bottle of Crescent Springs, KY.
Raffle tickets sales continue now through Monday, May 13 at 5pm. Winners will be announced at 7:30 p.m. Each ticket costs $100 and the raffle is limited to 800 tickets.
The grand prize winner will receive five bottles of Pappy Van Winkle Bourbon, one each of a 23-year, 20-year, 15-year, 12-year and 10-year-aged bourbon. Four runners up will each receive a two-bottle set of W.L. Weller Bourbon including one bottle of Special Reserve and one bottle of Antique 107.
“The Dragonfly Foundation is grateful to benefit from Cork ‘n Bottles’ Pappy Van Winkle Bourbon raffle,” said Ria Davidson, co-founder of The Dragonfly Foundation. “The fundraiser helps us better provide emotional, relational and practical support to pediatric cancer patients and families.”
Pappy Van Winkle Bourbon is notoriously hard to find. Each year, people line up outside liquor stores in the hopes of purchasing even one coveted bottle. This raffle presents an unprecedented opportunity for bourbon lovers to receive five bottles of one of the industry’s most sought-after bourbons.
Proceeds from the raffle will be split between The Dragonfly Foundation and the Mason-Deerfield Rotary Club, which is raising money to build Common Ground Park, an all-inclusive playground for people of all abilities.
“We couldn’t complete our mission to offer families a holistic, uncompromising, fighting chance at well-being without the support of our community, including business partners like Cork ‘n Bottle,” said Davidson.
The Dragonfly Foundation is committed to supporting pediatric cancer patients and their families to help them lead fulfilling and complete lives during and after treatment. The nonprofit offers multiple programs and events to create a community that provides understanding, support, resources and opportunities for its families. In addition, The Dragonfly Foundation recently purchased a new headquarters near Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center and is in the process of renovating the historic mansion to create new offices and family-friendly spaces.

About The Dragonfly Foundation
The Dragonfly Foundation, founded in 2010, helps pediatric cancer patients and their families find strength, courage and joy. The foundation does this by providing emotional, relational, and practical support and caring, nurturing and transformative experiences.
The fight for excellence in pediatric cancer treatment is important, but no less important is the commitment we must make to support the families that strive for fulfilling and complete lives during and after treatment. Though treatment may end, and illness may be cured or managed, the long-term effects of factors like internal group tension, familial isolation, post-traumatic stress, the anxiety of recurrence, and the emotional, physical and financial toll on the family unit often linger for years to come. While the importance of quality healthcare is a commonly shared value, we must remember to offer families a holistic, uncompromising, fighting chance at well-being, which is Dragonfly’s urgent, passionate mission.
