NFL legend Terry Bradshaw's Bourbon Dinner at the Kentucky Derby Museum raised $32,246 to benefit the museum Thursday night.
“Terry Bradshaw gained another fan this week–the Kentucky Derby Museum,” said Patrick Armstrong, President & CEO of the Museum. “But not just for his superstar status. Terry showed up for us in a big way. He donated his time, shared his bourbon with our guests, and had everyone laughing and smiling the whole night. What you see on TV is what you get in person. It was a great night for Terry to promote Bradshaw Bourbon, but we're not quite sure he realizes the impact he has had on the museum, after such a tough year financially.”
Ticket sales, sponsorships and sales of Bradshaw Bourbon all helped contribute to a successful night. Additionally, two raffle winners each received a football and bottle of Bradshaw Kentucky Straight Rye, both autographed by Bradshaw. The Bradshaw Kentucky Straight Rye is not available on store shelves yet, and made its debut at the event.
Kentucky Derby Museum has been hosting its Legends Series for eight years. The bourbon series showcases a variety of bourbons and high-profile bourbon experts each year.
