Last September, the Foundation received a very generous donation of $3,600 from The Old Barrelhouse. These funds were raised through a raffle, where whisky-enthusiasts purchased tickets for the chance to win a bottle of Jack Daniels Barrel Strength Whisky via a Facebook page called “Down Under JD Community.”
The first $1000 was raised in just 36 minutes and there were 106 different ticket holders, with a total of 722 tickets sold.
“The reason why we chose to support CLCRF is because cancer has touched both my business partner and I, losing family and friends in the past,” said David MK, co-owner of The Old Barrelhouse.
The Old Barrelhouse is an Australian owned and operated company, founded by two men with a shared passion for great whisky. The company sells a range of antique, limited edition and hard to find whiskies, and offers the largest Australian whisky portfolio on the planet.
We would like to thank The Old Barrelhouse, Down Under JD Community, and everyone who bought a raffle ticket. This incredible community support will go a long way in supporting childhood cancer research!
