The Kentucky State BBQ Festival has announced it’s Second Bourbon Barrel Art Project to benefit Heart of Kentucky United Way.

Local businesses and individuals are sponsoring Bourbon Barrels generously supplied by Four Roses, makers of fine bourbon whiskeys. The barrels will be decorated by local artists selected by the sponsors.

On Friday, September 6, kicking off the 3rd Ever Kentucky State BBQ Festival weekend, the barrels will be auctioned off with all proceeds going to Heart of Kentucky United Way.

The 2012 Bourbon Barrel Art Auction raised over $16,000 for Heart of Kentucky United Way.

Barrels will be available for viewing immediately preceeding the auction, beginning at 7:00PM at the Warehouse on Perryville Street in Danville and the auction will commence at 8:00PM.

Anyone interested in sponsoring a barrel should contact the Bourbon Barrel Auction Coordinator, Susan Hensley at at (859) 583-2953.

The cost to sponsor a barrel is $250. A $50 gift card will be given to the artist to help defray costs. Barrel sponsors will receive 4 complimentary tickets to the Auction Event. $1,000 and up sponsors of the BBQ Festival will receive two complimentary tickets to the Auction Event.

Tickets will be $10 to the public ($15 at door). Tickets will be available at the Danville/Boyle County Convention and Visitors Bureau office which is located in Grayson’s Tavern at Constitution Square or call Susan Hensley at 859-583-2953. There will be a cash bar.
