Re: Club Fund Raising
Non-profits are generally prohibited from sponsoring game of chance (anything that resembles gambling) unless they are a managed by their members and meet strict guidelines enforced by the Attorney General's office. You can charge admission for events but you cannot tie specific prizes to entries (i.e. bingo) unless you comply with the regulations. I would suggest that you contact the Attorney General's office to determine if your specific activity would be allowable.
