Do the same regulations apply to this "fund raiser" as have been applied to the Stafford FD?

I'm pretty sure the same regulations apply for all fundraisers. The questions are whether or not the paperwork has been filed to maintain compliance and who is verifying the paperwork.

Again, what is the value add for the paperwork boondoggle?

The CASA fundraiser should be much easier to get over the hurdles as there are only two locations involved - the CASA office (I'm guessing it's in the City) and Terry Hills (I believe that's in the Town).

Probably not, Brian.
First, I don't think it's listed as a "raffle".
Second, it's a psedo-gov't entity. Different rules for Them & us.
