“The loss of lives, housing, infrastructure, and even basic necessities most of us take for granted is devastating,” said Buffalo Trace Distillery CEO Mark Brown in a prepared statement. “We hope our bourbon community, who we know can be very generous, really shows its support and we’re able to raise an unheralded amount of funds for Eastern Kentucky disaster relief.” More details about how to bid on all the items can be found here.
