- United States of America
A Quarter Auction is a multi-vendor/home crafters marketing tool to promote direct sales businesses while also benefiting a local charity.
At the auction, recipients bid on items by putting a certain number of quarters in a bucket. The number of quarters to submit depends on the value of the item. Never more than 4 quarters
The recipient will also place a chip with an identifying number on it in a second bucket.
A participating vendor will pull a numbered chip from the second bucket. The person with the paddle that matches the chip that was pulled wins that item.
Quarter Auction would fall under the guidelines of the Small Game of Chance Act.
Currently Quarter Auction are considered illegal because of the three element which Pennsylvania considers gambling illegal. The three elements are 1) Payment of Consideration 2) Reward 3) Chance
We as constituents would like to propose that Quarter Auction be added to the five types of games of chance under the Act. The five types of games covered under the Act is: Punchboards, Pull-Tabs, Raffles, Daily Drawings and Weekly Drawings.
The difference between Quarter Auction & the above games are 100% of paddle sales, food & community items go to the Non-Profit Organization.
The Vendors would like to be able to continue to help our community members by holding the Quarter Auction events & the participants enjoy the combination of Auction/Raffle & also would like to be able to continue to help our community.
Helping our communities is our number one goal & we would be elated to continue.
