Only five hundred of the bottles will be available starting this Thursday by calling the Cardinal Athletic Fund at 852-8460, starting at 9 a.m. with your credit card in hand.
The cost — actually it’s a major investment — is $2,000, with all the proceeds going to benefit the UofL Academic Center for Excellence. UofL and Maker’s Mark are teaming up for raise $1 million. The estimated cost of the project is $14 million.
The bottles celebrate the Year of the Cardinal with an unprecedented four-part feat in college athletics: winning the Sugar Bowl, participating in the College World Series, advancing to the national championship game in women’s basketball, and winning the 2013 NCAA men’s basketball championship.
