“Get in the Game: New York State Charitable Gaming Act of 2018”

Presenter Robert J. McLaughlin

Presenter: Robert J. McLaughlin, Partner, Hodgson Russ LLP

In late 2017, Governor Andrew Cuomo signed the “Charitable Gaming Act”, a new state law that allows charities to sell and advertise their raffles online and on mobile apps. The Act went into effect during the summer of 2018 and also allows nonprofit organizations to accept cash, checks and debit and credit cards as payment for raffle sales. However, there are limitations on sales and “fine print” to be aware of: the location of a fundraising event, the gaming rules of local municipalities and the home zip codes of the ticket purchasers may affect your overall game plan. Robert McLaughlin will present and discuss the details of the Hodgson Russ Client Alert on the Charitable Gaming Act.

The December luncheon event is also our Annual All-Chapter Meeting: hear updates and 2018 highlights from Chapter leadership; Chapter Members may cast their ballots for the 2019 Chapter Board of Directors.

Early Bird Rates when you register by 11/28/18: $28 for AFP Members; $40 without Membership
After 11/28: $35 for AFP Members; $45 without Membership
