About a month ago, one of the school’s families that owns a popular restaurant and bar held a special fundraising event whereby 20% of the proceeds from every meal served were donated to the school. The school sent out email advertisements to its families, and kids put up posters around town. The event was a huge success, netting $3,000 to the school. Today, the school received a complaint from the Department of Agriculture asking for details about the event, citing a potential violation of the Solicitation of Funds statute.
