Integrity is one of our core values. Does this mean it’s ok to follow Toastmaster guidelines while ignoring local laws? I expect few people of integrity would say yes. If you don’t like a law, fight to get it changed, don’t simply disobey.
Please note this letter sent to one of our contest chairs: “The Liquor and Gaming Authority of Manitoba (LGA) received your application(s) for a social occasion raffle for October –, 2016.
Individuals and groups who are planning a one-time social event at a public place of amusement such as a banquet hall, restaurant, bar or community centre, and want to have a raffle such as a 50/50 or players’ choice at the event, are required to apply for a social occasion raffle licence.
Private businesses are not eligible for this type of licence. As such your application will not be approved.
If you wish to hold your event at any other location mentioned above, please re-submit the application (attached) or select the link.
http://lgamanitoba.ca/liquor-gaming-applications/social-occasion-raffles/. The processing time for this type of application is five business days.” The chair and the host club found another way to collect the cash the District requested to help pay for prizes. It was legal, creative and fair. Can you do the same?
Integrity. Respect. Service. Excellence.
