HARRISBURG – Rep. Aaron Kaufer (R-Luzerne) announced this week that he will host a Small Games of Chance Seminar on Wednesday, March 7, from 6-9 p.m., at the Wyoming Hose Company, located at 70 E. 3rd St., in Wyoming.

“If you are a member of an organization that uses a small games of chance license, or your group is interested in learning more about obtaining one, I encourage you to attend this seminar,” Kaufer said. “This is a good way to make sure your group is following current state law, as there have been several changes and updates made in recent years.”

Liquor Enforcement Officer Derrick Devaney from the Pennsylvania State Police Bureau of Liquor Control Enforcement’s Compliance, Auditing and Gambling Enforcement Unit will update attendees on the state Liquor Code and how small games of chance regulations are enforced by his bureau.

This primarily affects event organizers of charitable organizations conducting Night at the Races, basket raffles, 50-50 drawings, bingo events and more. Organizers for these types of events may include church groups, school sports clubs, parent teacher organizations, private groups and clubs that conduct any small games of chance.

For information about any state-related issue, contact Kaufer’s district office in Luzerne located at 161 Main St., by calling 570-283-1001. Information can also be found online at RepKaufer.com or Facebook.com/RepKaufer.
