Here's how the raffle (or "brawl") is going to work.  This is winner-take-all.  Heck yeah it is.  That's where the word "brawl" comes in.  ONE lucky winner is going to win ALL the bottles listed.

The Back Woods Brawl officially got underway at 9am on Thursday, October 1st.  The raffle will close on Friday, October 23rd at 6pm CST.  The grand prize drawing will then take place at 6:30pm on the Garden's Facebook page.

To purchase your raffle tickets, CLICK HERE!  One ticket is $100, two tickets are $200, three are $300 and so on.  According to The Garden's brand new executive director, Laurna Strehl, "This is a significant fundraiser and has the potential to be our biggest one ever."

Laurna, by the way, has been involved with the Western Kentucky Botanical Garden since 2011 and is thrilled to step into her new role. Of course, COVID-19 canceled the annual Back Woods Ball, but they got creative with the Back Woods Brawl!  According to Strehl, "For our locals- The Garden hopes to be a wonderful part of your memories. Your memories can come from a special event held here, a family or milestone photo session, or a picnic at one our picnic tables. The Garden will certainly make Owensboro proud as visitors are able to enjoy and make memories at The Garden. Your contributions are a big part of our Future and are greatly appreciated."

So, with that said, it's time to get YOUR raffle tickets.  Let the "brawl" for bourbon begin!
