All Proceeds From Ticket Sales Benefit Abused and Neglected Children in Central Kentucky through CASA Of The Bluegrass


DANVILLE, Ky. (October 21, 2019) – Kentucky thrill-seekers mark your calendars for the inaugural “Taste of the Trace,” event Friday, Nov. 8 at Buffalo Trace Distillery. Benefiting CASA of the Bluegrass, the premiere bash will feature a little bit of everything to kick off your weekend with a bullseye -- including food by Bourbon N’ Toulouse and That Place Catering; libations by Buffalo Trace, West Sixth Brewery and Rising Sons Winery; live music by Little Larry’s Chicago; and an interactive axe-throwing pop-up by Battle Axes. Buffalo Trace will also be offering VIP tour experiences of their distillery throughout the night. 

Tickets for “Taste Of The Trace” are ON SALE NOW and can be purchased online at or by visiting this link.  All proceeds benefit abused and neglected children of Central Kentucky through CASA of the Bluegrass, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit serving Boyle, Anderson, Mercer and Franklin counties. CASA recruits and trains volunteers to serve as court-appointed special advocates for children involved in court proceedings due to conflict at home. These skilled volunteers provide judges with independent information to help court systems work to improve each child’s future. 

“CASA Serves not only as an extra set of eyes and ears for the court, but also as an invaluable resource for families in crisis.  Always, CASA’s involvement with children gives them a strong voice when a strong voice is needed most.”-  Judge Squire Williams, Franklin County Family Court

In 2018, 26,237 children cycled through the Kentucky family court systems. 3,514 of those children had the help of a CASA volunteer. There are currently 1,112 trained CASA volunteers actively working throughout the state. Statistics show children assigned a CASA volunteer are half as likely to re-enter foster care, twice as likely to find a safe, permanent home and twice as likely to graduate high school. They also score higher than children without the help of a CASA volunteer on protective components like: feeling accepted, controlling deviant behavior, maintaining a positive attitude about the future, valuing achievement, being a team player and resolving conflict.  To explore how you can become a CASA volunteer, and make a difference in a child’s life, visit  

“Taste of the Trace” will take place from 7 p.m. to Midnight at the Elmer T. Lee Clubhouse at Buffalo Trace Distillery, 113 Great Buffalo Trace, Frankfort KY.  For more information, check out the event’s page on Facebookor visit
