Any organization that wants to conduct a basket auction, 50/50, designer bag bingo, or any other kind of raffle must have a license.  The organization must first be licensed by the state of New Jersey to conduct games and then a separate license is required for each game to be held from the municipality where the games will be conducted.  For more information on obtaining a gaming license from the state, you can go to the Legalized Games of Chance Control Commission website. Once you have your gaming license, contact the Municipal Clerk to obtain a license for the individual games to be held.  Paperwork for a raffle/bingo license must be received a month before your scheduled event.  We must have three notarized and originally signed copies of the application.  Each application must be signed by two officers of the organization.  Contact the Municipal Clerk at 856-931-1546 or via email at
