LEXINGTON, Ky. (LEX 18) — UK Athletics has partnered with Maker's Mark to complete several bottles called "the Million Dollar Bottle."

The bottle features a silver finish, a Kentucky Blue hand-dipped wax seal and the UK logo. Only 100 individual numbered bottles were made, making this a collector's item unlike any other.

Bottles are exclusively available through UK Athletics for a $10,000 donation to the K Fund, the fundraising arm of UK Athletics that supports student-athlete scholarships and experience programs.

If you are interested in purchasing one fill out the form here by 10 p.m. on Nov. 10. After the entry period closes, UK Athletics will randomly select entrants and contact winners with the opportunity to purchase a bottle.

UK Athletics has set a goal to raise $1 million for the continuing support of the academic, athletic and personal development of Wildcat student-athletes through Million Dollar Bottle proceeds.

Winners who purchase a bottle will also have the opportunity to purchase lower level Kentucky men’s basketball season tickets. With season tickets sold out, this will be the only opportunity to buy season tickets in 2019.
