New Rule for Charities and Suppliers

From speaking with a couple of suppliers, the MGCB has implemented a new rule putting a cap on the amount of expenses a charity can pay while running a Millionaire Party.

According to the suppliers, they were told that the charities can only pay out for all expenses is $650 but not to exceed 45% of the rake.  The suppliers are last to get paid.  If a location charges the $250 maximum for rent, the supplier can charge up to $400.

But lets say it is a really slow night and the charity only make $600.  The rent is $250 and the supplier can only bill $20???  I am not sure how long the suppliers can last with the setup.  Nor am I really sure how the MGCB can just make up rules like this.

Expect a new lawsuit coming soon regarding this rule and the emergency order handed down by Governor Snyder.
