Gary Bohannon, incoming executive director of Helping Hand of Hope gives thanks to Boundary Oaks Distillery, Hodges Auction Co. and the anonymous buyer of the first-ever bottle of bourbon to be produced in Hardin County since the 1800s on Tuesday morning at the Elizabethtown Tourism and Convention Bureau office. Helping Hand of Hope received a check for $28,050 as proceeds from an online auction for the buying rights of Boundary Oak distillery's bourbon bottle No. 1. The bottle will be ready in 2016 and will be placed in the Hardin County History Museum.
An anonymous bidder who purchased the first-ever bottle of Boundary Oaks Distillery bourbon during an online auction last week chose Helping Hand of Hope to receive the money that purchased the bottle.
