As the Honorable Order of Kentucky Colonels continues to raise and distribute disaster relief funds, recent help came from a seemingly unlikely source. Two Indianapolis businesses – Trinity Metals and Hotel Tango Distillery – are teaming up to provide not one or two, but three barrels of Bourbon that the Colonels will sell to their contributing members. All proceeds from the sale of 648 bottles will be directed to organizations assisting victims of the December tornadoes.

“Kentucky Colonels’ generosity is always amazing and when Trinity Metals, Wade Conner and his team, approached the Honorable Order of Kentucky Colonels about this partnership with Hotel Tango, we were amazed once again,” said Colonel Sherry Crose, Executive Director of the Honorable Order. “We are honored to share these three hand-selected barrels with lucky Colonels country-wide. This is the first partnership of this kind in our history. Because the Colonels gave, we expect to raise more than $50,000 to lift up those in western Kentucky who lost so much.”

“Trinity Metals is honored to support the Honorable Order of Kentucky Colonels by sponsoring this Fundraiser with Hotel Tango for the Kentucky Tornado Relief Effort,” said Trinity Metals CEO Colonel Wade Conner. “The Commonwealth of Kentucky has always been an important part of the Trinity success story and it is only fitting that we support the tornado relief effort with our best efforts. The Board of Trustees of the Honorable Order of Kentucky Colonels has the connections and networks in place to put our charitable dollars to work far more effectively than we ever could. It is an honor for us to be able to contribute to this good work.”
