The annual Rotary Bourbon Ball is the Owensboro Rotary Club's  largest fundraising event. Taking place in February, the event includes a Bourbon tasting, silent auction, Bourbon-themed dinner and dancing. Proceeds from the Bourbon Ball come back to our community in so many ways and help Rotary touch the world.  In addition to funding our community service grants, a portion of the proceeds each year is designated to support other organizations in their efforts to make a difference. Organizations benefiting from the Bourbon Ball  in the past include the American Red Cross, Empowerment Academy and Honor Flight Bluegrass Chapter.
