FRANKFORT, Ky. (WTVQ) – Kentucky State Police is fundraising for its annual, free summer camp by raffling off a popular pickup truck.
The agency says it will sell tickets to the public for a chance to win the Jeep Gladiator Rubicon, which was recently named 2020 Pickup of the Year.
The camp, Trooper Island, is for disadvantaged boys and girls age 10-12 and is held at Dale Hollow Lake in Clinton County. KSP says the camp is financed entirely by donations, no public funds are used.
Troopers say the camp hosts approximately 700 children each year, providing good food, fresh air, recreation, guidance and structured, esteem-building activities designed to build good citizenship and positive relationships with law enforcement officers.
Raffle tickets are $10 each and will be available at any KSP post located throughout the state.
