FRANKFORT, Ky. (WTVQ) – A Louisville man won a new car in the KSP Trooper Island Raffle.
It’s an annual raffle to raise money for the agency’s free summer camp for underprivileged boys and girls age 10-to-12. Trooper Island is located on Dale Hollow Lake in Clinton County.
It is financed entirely by private donations. No public money is used to fund the operation. Each year the camp hosts approximately 700 children, providing nutritious food, fresh air, recreation, guidance and structure.
Esteem-building activities at the camp are designed to develop good citizenship and positive relationships with law enforcement officers.
The KSP Trooper Island Raffle winner this year was Kimmy Smith. He received the keys Thursday to his new 2018 Dodge Charger R/T 392 Scat Pack from Kentucky State Police Commissioner Rick Sanders and Sergeant Josh Lawson.
The presentation was made at the KSP Academy in Frankfort. Also on hand for the ceremony was Bob Allen, president of Bob Allen Motor Mall and Jim Hughey, manager of the Bob Allen Frankfort location, which supplied the vehicle for the annual raffle.
