Frankfort, KY. (Dec. 7, 2020) –The season of giving is here and the Kentucky State Police (KSP) hope citizens will consider the purchase of a Trooper Island Camp raffle ticket as a stocking stuffer for that special gift item. The raffle is for a new 2021 Chevrolet Camaro 2SS Convertible and proceeds from the sales support the agency’s Trooper Island Camp for disadvantaged children. Coming from Don Franklin Chevrolet in Burkesville, Ky., this iconic Camaro is cloaked in a black exterior and gray, leather interior. It’s equipped with 6.2 liter V8 engine and a 10-speed paddle-shift automatic transmission that can go from 0-60 in 4.3 seconds.
KSP Spokesman Sergeant Billy Gregory said he hopes the early arrival of the raffle tickets will increase sales during the holiday shopping season.
“We hope that people will like the uniqueness of a gift that not only provides the opportunity to win a car but also supports Trooper Island Camp,” says Gregory. “Even if they don’t win the car, the recipient knows that their gift helped send a child to camp, who otherwise would not have had that opportunity.”
Tickets are $10 each and are available at www.trooperisland.org or at any KSP post located throughout the state. For a limited time, people who purchase raffle tickets will receive a stocking stuffer certificate which can be placed in a stocking or a Christmas card that verifies the purchase of the gift. The certificates are available online through Dec. 18 and in-person purchase through Dec. 24.
A total of 35,000 tickets will be sold with the winning ticket to be drawn on Sunday August 29, 2021 at the Kentucky State Fair. Ticket holders do not have to be present at the drawing to win. The raffle winner is responsible for all tax and license fees. (Charitable gaming license #0000633.)
