I have an interesting situation here I would like to get some feed back on.
I am the President of a homebrew club. We are not a 501c group. But we do several festivals in which the proceeds go to charity. A couple of weeks ago, some of us served our home brew at event where the proceeds go to charity. I got the following email from the organizer:
"...In addition to a thank you we would like to send a donation to your group to show our appreciation for your participation in our event. We did well and look forward to making a generous donation to our charity partner. What address should we send something to?"
I am nervous about accepting it because, for me, it gets too close to the line of selling beer. Besides, we do these events to support the charity, not to get a donation. I want them to send "our potion" to the charity also.
Have any of you heard of this going on? If a club were to accept this, are they breaking the law?
Thank you very much for your time in this matter.
