FREE Workshop Explains Rules of Small Games of Chance Fundraising

Posted on June 26, 2018

Johnstown, PA (June 26, 2018) – Fundraising is important to many nonprofit and charitable organizations, including volunteer fire departments and churches, schools and youth sports teams and parent boosters, as well as recreational and social clubs. But what types of activities are allowed? A Small Games of Chance permit comes with rules and requirements about how to collect and use the money that you raise.

Nearly 90 representatives from more than 40 organizations signed up to attend aย FREE Small Games of Chance Workshop on Wednesday, June 27ย from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Flair of Country Event Facility at the Johnstown-Cambria County Airport (doors open at 5:30 p.m. for registration/refreshments). Organizations will hear from Liquor Control Enforcement Officer Christopher J. Burns from the Pennsylvania State Police Bureau of Liquor Control Enforcement. The workshop, which is funded by the Cambria County Drug & Alcohol Program and coordinated by The Learning Lamp, will cover legal and illegal gambling, types of permitted Small Games of Chance, use of proceeds for holders of Club or Club Liquor Licenses, bingo laws and Special Occasion Permits.
