Press Release
The Michael J. Novolsel Foundation, a 501 (c) 3 charity has been severely disadvantaged in its ability to raise funds by recent changes in state law regulating small games of chance such as 50/50 raffles.

All proceeds raised by the Novosel Foundation go directly- dollar for dollar -to the needs of Guard and Reservists returning to their communities from deployments in Iraq and Afghanistan. However well intentioned the legislative intent, compliance with the recently enacted changes is not merely overly burdensome, required information is not readily available or non-existant. Due to these restrictions it is impossible for this organization and others to conduct an element of generating resources to continue providing necessary assistance to their beneficiaries.

George Metz, Director of the Novosel Foundation is hoping that the Governor and members of the State House and Senate will promptly consider making changes to this statute. The Novosel Foundation, a non profit organization in which 100% of the monies raised goes directly to assisting Iraq and Afghan veterans should not be thwarted in its ability to do so. For additional information please contact George Metz at 412-266-8823.
