Kentucky State Police Commissioner Brewer presented Cave City-resident John Holbrook with the keys to the GMC Sierra 1500 SLE pickup truck featured in the 2014 Trooper Island raffle on Sept. 18. Holbrook's name was drawn on the final day of the Kentucky State Fair from more than 18,000 tickets sold during the raffle. More than $131,000 was raised for the camp through ticket sales this year. The raffle is the primary fundraising event for Trooper Island, a free summer camp for underprivileged boys and girls age 10-12 operated by the Kentucky State Police on Dale Hollow Lake in Clinton County. It is financed entirely by donations, no public funds are used. Each year, the camp hosts approximately 700 children, providing good food, fresh air, recreation, guidance and structured, esteem-building activities designed to build good citizenship and positive relationships with law enforcement officers.
