Dad Using His Pappy Van Winkle In Fight Against Cystic Fibrosis

An Indiana man is using a portion of his bourbon collection to raise money for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.

Specifically, Nathan Perdue is auctioning off some of his Pappy Van Winkle. His two-year-old son suffers from the  genetic disorder that affects mostly the lungs, but can also affect other organs like the kidneys, liver and pancreas.

More on the auction from City Beat:

Perdue approached the Kentucky Derby Museum with the idea of raffling his collection to raise awareness and to raise money for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation .Tickets for the raffle, benefitting the Foundation, are $100 each, and only 4,000 will be sold.
The winner of the raffle will receive a:

Five bottle limited-edition collection of Pappy Van Winkle bourbon, valued at $18,250 by Justins’ House of Bourbon;

VIP Kentucky Derby Museum experience for the winner and up to three guests;

and a one-night stay at Hotel Distil for the winner.
