Bill (H 287) requires organizations, churches and clubs to retain any unclaimed raffle prize worth more than $600 for one year and provide public notice of the winning ticket for a year.

“In the interest of consumer protection, any individual who generously contributes for the greater good of a charitable or nonprofit organization via a raffle or drawing, should be allowed the opportunity to claim that prize for up to one year of the drawing date.” said Rep. Paul McMurtry (D-Dedham), the sponsor of the measure.
