In addition to its unit charity tournaments, a unit may conduct charity game(s) at each of its sectional tournaments.
APPLICATION: The unit must list the charity game online sanction application. The game is subject to the same scheduling restrictions as any other one-session championship event.
BENEFICIARY: The unit may conduct the game on behalf of the ACBL Charity Foundation, the Canadian Charitable Fund, the ACBL Educational Foundation, or an IRS-approved or Revenue Canada-approved local charitable organization.
AWARDS: When the ACBL Charity Foundation, the Canadian Charitable Fund, the ACBL Educational Foundation, or an IRS-approved or Revenue Canada-approved local charitable organization is the beneficiary, the game carries full regional rating.
MINIMUM DONATIONS: When the ACBL Charity Foundation or the Canadian Charitable Fund is the beneficiary, there is a minimum per table donation equal to 100% of the sectional per table sanction fee. When the beneficiary is a local charity, the per table fee goes to ACBL and the remainder goes to the local charity. Any differences between these minimum donations and the actual fees charged may be retained by the sponsors for expenses.
STAFFING: Staffing for this game is the responsibility of the Director-in-Charge of the sectional.
PROCEEDS: The unit must send the entire ACBL Charity Foundation or Canadian Charitable Fund donation to ACBL along with the tournament report form. If the unit conducted the event for a local beneficiary, it must include on the report the name of the beneficiary and the amount donated.
