Catholic Education Foundation raises
$105,000 in first bourbon raffle

The Catholic Education Foundation announced that its inaugural online bourbon raffle raised $105,000, which will be used to provide tuition assistance for at least 50 needy families this school year.

The drawing was live-streamed July 15 and five individuals won bottles of bourbon, according to a press release from the foundation.

Foundation president Richard Lechleiter said in the release that this was a “fantastic outcome for our Catholic school families who are now reaching out to us for help this fall. This event alone will create a Catholic education experience for 50 families who can’t afford it.”

Lechleiter said the foundation plans to hold the raffle again next year.
