Tennessee benefit auction planners, this post is just for you.
Admittedly there’s nothing in this post about smoking. But all three rolled off my tongue as I typed.
Let’s cover the other two.
The Tennessee Auctioneer Commission, a regulatory board under the Tennessee Department of Commerce and Insurance, published two articles in its Fall 2015 NewsLine newsletter. One addressed the sale of alcohol and the other looked at charitable gaming at auctions.
I found the articles easy to read and thought you would, too. Rather than paraphrase them, below is the whole enchilada(s) for you to read.
(P.S. I’d like to link to the newsletter but a search for the newsletter on the Commission’s website yielded no results. Maybe it will be posted later.)
Gambling activities (think: raffles) at charity auctions
Selling alcohol at auctions
Thanks to our forefathers (I’m writing from my perch in the USA), States get a lot of rights. One area that States enjoy imposing countless laws is on alcohol.
Regulations on liquor are prolific. Who can legally make it, sell it, consume it, transport it, make a profit from it — all laws vary by state. These laws extend to how it can be used (served or sold) at auction.
