50/50 Raffles: What You Need to Know

​As spring and summer activities swing into action, many youth athletic organizations are raising money to participate in out-of-state tournaments.

One way associations raise money is through a 50/50 raffle. Raffles are a great way to help offset travel costs but they must be done legally.

Associations must contact the Gambling Control Board before conducting a 50/50 raffle to understand all of the requirements set forth in Minnesota Rules and Statutes pertaining to lawful gambling. 

For more information, contact the Gambling Control Board.

Prom & Graduation Drinking

​Prom and graduation are times to make memories and celebrate with friends but if it’s not done responsibly and legally it could be the last party you ever attend.
Selling alcohol to a minor or buying it for those under 21 can lead to criminal charges or civil law suits if injury or death is suffered due to the intoxicated minor.
During April and May in the last five years (2011-2015), there have been 171 crashes involving teen drivers that have led to six deaths and 14 life-changing injuries.
AGED reminds establishments and liquor stores to card everyone, every time. Parents, know that you can be held responsible for serving alcohol to minors and that it’s important to educate your teens on the dangers of consuming alcohol and driving under the influence.
