State law requires anyone who sells, furnishes, or gives away any alcoholic beverages be licensed by the state, and receive local government approval before a license is issued.
Organizations wishing to sell alcoholic beverages at a fundraiser or other function must obtain a Special License to do so.
A Special License is issued only to non-profit religious, fraternal, civic, or patriotic organizations. Organizations must submit proof of their non-profit status to the Liquor Control Commission, and may be issued a one-day Special License for the event. No organizations, including its auxiliaries, may receive more than five Special Licenses during one calendar year.
