The Morning News: News : Taxing Charity

The Morning News: News : Taxing Charity: "FAYETTEVILLE -- Springdale's bingo balls may stop bouncing soon.

A weekly bingo game run by the Veterans of Foreign Wars post in Springdale has lost about $1,500 a month since the state legalized charitable bingo in July.

State taxes are cutting away at the money once raised for local charities, said post quartermaster Randy George.

'Some people think it's not even worth having now,' he said about the long-standing bingo game that attracts about 100 people to the post each Wednesday."
