Raffles Conducted By State Employees For Charitable Or Benevolent Entity

1.         RCW 9.46.0209 authorizes state employees to conduct charitable raffles, but such raffles may benefit a person or family in need through a qualified charitable or benevolent entity.  However, state employees may not conduct a raffle for the purpose of raising funds that will be transmitted directly to an individual person or family in need.  2.         A charitable raffle conducted by a group of state employees may benefit a family, family member, or friend of a state employee conducting the raffle, only if that recipient has been designated as a person or family in need by a qualified charitable or benevolent entity.
