Elks give funding info…
Each year, Tucumcari ‘s Elks Lodge 1172 BPOE steps forward to assist many efforts in Tucumcari and Quay County, said Raymond Parker, chairman of the Elks Board of Trustees.
Many are in the area of youth programs that range from sports to library resources.
The Elks programs are funded, in large part, by its bingo games. “We do have a bingo license all of our net proceeds must go to charity,” Parker said. Another major portion comes from the slot machines, which, by state law requires that a certain amount of the proceeds must also be used for charity he said. he said.
In addition to these contributions, some of the 430 members donate independently to different programs, Parker said.
