A Bourbon Auction Raised $340,000 For Cancer

Up for bid were holy unicorns riding in Santa’s Sleigh: Bald Monk, an extremely rare underground blend that collectors go crazy for; 1987 release of Booker’s; 1979 Ezra Brooks 15-year-old; and a bowling pin filled with Jim Beam.

Each ticket included a bottle of Willett Family Estate bourbon from a barrel specially selected for the event by The Bourbon Crusaders and Willett Master Distiller, Drew Kulsveen.

The Bourbon Crusaders’ American Cancer Society benefit, “Willett To Be Cured,” raised $340,000 to fight cancer after the famed Willett bourbon family patriarch, Even Kulsveen, was diagnosed with stage four Lymphoma.

The proceeds are supporting local Kentucky families fighting cancer and funding research to find a cure.

Chow Yun-fat Plans to Give His Entire Fortune to Charity

Chinese ‘Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon’ star is going to give his entire fortune to charity.

He apparently, lives on about $102 (US dollars) /  $800 (Hong Kong dollars) a month.

He stays frugal by taking public transportation and doing charity work instead of spending it on himself. He shops at discount clothing stores. He also had a Nokia phone for 17 years, and only upgraded to a smart phone recently, when his Nokia one stopped working.

He is giving his entire net worth, $5.6 billion Hong Kong Dollars (that’s $714 million USD) to charity.

What a great soul, and I hope that his money is properly used by the charity of his choice.
