Hardin County-based nonprofit Give 270 presented a check for $11,200 to Radcliff Rotary Club for the organization’s scholarship fund for seniors graduating from North Hardin High School, Fort Knox High School, and the area homeschool community. The donation was raised through Give 270’s March 2022 Whiskey Wednesdays bourbon raffles.
“We are so grateful for our partnership with Give 270 to raise these funds to benefit area students,” said Charlie Fraley, Radcliff Rotary Club president. “The Rotary is dedicated to ‘Service Above Self’ and this funding will help us support area students through the scholarship fund.”
Scholarship recipients are selected based on academic achievement, extracurricular activities, community service and financial need. This donation allows the club to add an additional scholarship for a homeschool student in northern Hardin County. Interested students can apply for a Radcliff Rotary scholarship through their guidance counselor by April 28th.
Actively serving the community since 1975, the Radcliff Rotary Club meets each Thursday at noon at the Colvin Community Center in Radcliff. The club contacted Give 270 to explore fundraising opportunities to support their scholarship program.
The Whiskey Wednesdays Bourbon Raffles are hosted live on Give 270’s Facebook page and YouTube channel each Wednesday and gives participants a chance to win rare and valuable bottles of whiskey at an affordable price point while helping the region. Raffle tickets are $5 and are available for purchase each week at give270.org.
Give 270 is a local 501(c)(3) crowdfunding organization that raises money to benefit projects and organizations in Hardin, LaRue and Meade counties.
“Radcliff Rotary Club is a great example of civic-minded leaders coming together to make a lasting difference for their friends and neighbors,” said Give 270 co-founder Kenny Rambo. “The mission of Give 270 is to support such efforts in our community.”
Give 270 also hosts signature fundraising events like the Kentucky Craft Beer Festival scheduled for June 18 at The Haycraft and the Eric and Joe Show scheduled for November 18, 19, and 20 at the Historic State Theater.
