Sample Bazaar Application Instructions
STATEMENT OF ACTIVE MEMBERS
1. The three Designated Active Members listed on the bazaar application must read the information provided
on the Statement of Active Members application, print their names in the designated areas and affix their
signatures to the form.
ALLOWABLE BAZAAR PRIZES
All prizes given at a bazaar shall be *merchandise. There is an exception, however, which provides for cash
awards for only two specific types of bazaar games, which are the “fifty-fifty” coupon game and the blower ball
cash game. Any organization conducting a bazaar may operate three “fifty-fifty” coupon drawings each day of
a permitted bazaar event and must award cash prizes of fifty percent of “fifty-fifty” coupon game sales for each
coupon drawing conducted. Blower ball games were already approved for use with merchandise prize awards;
however, the law now allows for cash prizes up to $50.00 each to be awarded, as well. These are the only
exceptions that have been made with respect to the type of prizes that may be awarded at a bazaar. Therefore,
any qualifying organization that has obtained a bazaar permit may only award merchandise prizes for every
other permissible bazaar game.
*Merchandise includes gift certificates. Gift certificates must be a value redeemed at a business ie: $50.00 gift
certificate redeemable at Kohl’s. It cannot be a certificate for a specific service or item such as a haircut or ice-
cream cone.
