Nobody had signed up for the elementary school casino fundraiser committee!!!!! Deadline tomorrow at 2:30 pm.
This town is really going downhill. Not one person showed up to the preliminary rehearsal meetings for the elementary school casino fundraiser committee. Since the rest of you do not seem to have any pride in our town or sense of urgency, let me remind you what is at stake: If we don’t form this committee by 2:30 PM tomorrow, we’ll be behind in our 4 year plan to set up the fundraiser to raise the funds to build a casino adjoining the elementary school. This casino will not only teach the next generation essential math and money handling skills - a sizable portion of the proceeds from the casino will go towards expanding the arts program at the elementary school. How else would we train enough child performers for the casino’s anticipated weekly “Mini Liza Maneli” pageant and review? Do you truly want to allow the oncoming of the next generation without at least attempting to impart these important life skills onto the youngest among us? I mean look at the St. Amos preschool graduating class of 2018 - yuck! Would you want those children taking care of you in your old age? I know I don’t. Something has to give. Please sign up tomorrow by 2:30 to be entered into the highly selective applicant pool for committee members. We will also need volunteers for free transportation to and from all committee meetings and sites for the foreseeable future. This will include trips to local casinos as often as necessary to full flesh out this idea. Ride must provide seating for 16 in one vehicle - no exceptions. If you think you meet these requirements we can discuss once we have established a committee and committee board. Don’t waste the potential committee’s time with offers that don’t fulfill these requirements. It’s for a school! Won’t anyone think of the children? -Geraldine P.S. If you are the parent of a child from St. Amos Preschool’s graduating class of 2018, don’t even bother applying to this committee. YOU are part of the problem. Next!
I'm posting this here instead of in /alberta mostly because this reddit seems more active - I am writing an opinion paper and I just want to make sure I'm not barking up the wrong tree. Some of the things I would like to know are below, but tell me as much as you like about anything related:
What groups are eligible to have casino fundraisers?
Is it considered public money?
What are the restrictions on what the money can be used for? (I know there's probably a huge manual for this with lots of gory details, but I just want to know the broad general principles behind it)
What measures are there to make sure that people use the money for its intended purposes?
I'm trying to keep this a regularly occurring thing and will edit/update it as needed but, be warned, it is a lot of work to generate this. So if I don't get it out some weeks just know that I didn't find the time for it.

Requesting suggestions for locations for a memorial golf-outing fundraiser
I will start this off by saying that I am completely golf-ignorant so please forgive any misuse of terms in my post. On Feb. 4th my father died very suddenly at 54 years old. He was an extremely likeable guy and was very well-respected by his family and his "work family". I, and many others, miss him dearly every day. In his career he has had an enormously positive impact on his industry (construction general managing) and has managed such high profile construction projects as the Bronx Terminal Market (Bronx, NY), Plaza Hotel (Manhattan, NY), and the Fulton Street Transit Center (aka Fulton Center - Manhattan, NY). He was managing the to-be skyscraper at 99 Hudson Street (Jersey City, NJ) when he passed. To memorialize him his coworkers and I decided that it would be a great idea to host a golf outing in his name with proceeds going towards philanthropic causes - I really like the idea of creating a memorial scholarship, but that's not the point of this post. The donors and participants of this outing will likely be somewhat-wealthy, generous contractors and clients that my dad has worked with over the past 30 years who are willing and eager to make substantial contributions for the cause (~$1000-2000 per person for a round of golf plus raffles, casino fundraisers, etc.) Given the contributions that we expect to be receiving, I am hoping to find a golf course on Long Island, NY that would novel and exclusive enough for someone to justify spending such much money to play a round of golf. Of course, there will be lots of food, drinks, and other events happening simultaneously. The current course list that I've looked into is: -Bethpage State Park: they have the famous "Bethpage Black" but I'm not sure that we'll be able to reserve it - hopefully we can get the Red. -Willow Creek CC -Friar's Head (they said no) I will be contacting: -Long Island National -Cherry Creek CC -Great Rock If you have any suggestions on courses in the Long Island/NYC area then please suggest them to me! Also, if anyone has ever been a part of events of this type then I'd also love to hear suggestions on how the quality of the event can be improved! Thanks! Bonus text: because I miss him and am so proud of him for what he accomplished in his lifetime, here is a short industry article that was written about him. http://rew-online.com/2017/02/08/plaza-constructions-leonard-campanello-dead-at-age-54/
