Kentucky State Police holding pickup truck raffle to benefit Trooper Island
(KBSI) – The Kentucky State Police is offering the public the opportunity to own a brand-new vehicle in 2023.
The agency’s non-profit, Trooper Island Camp, is raffling off a 2023 GMC Sierra 1500 Denali 4WD. Proceeds from the sales support the camp for underprivileged children.
Trooper Island is a free summer camp for underprivileged boys and girls aged 10 through 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.
The advanced Denali comes from Bailey-Gibson Buick GMC in Glasgow, Ky. It has a white frost exterior and perforated forge leather interior. It is equipped with a 5.3L, EcoTec3 V-8 engine, and an integrated trailer brake controller and trailering package. It is equipped with a remote engine start and an electric sliding sunroof. Inside the truck are heated front and back seats, a heated steering wheel, hitch guidance with hitch view and image adjustment, and an OnStar Communication System and Sirius XM satellite radio. The truck has a power sliding rear window with a defogger, power retracting assist steps with perimeter lighting, and a 2-speed autotrac transfer case.
