A local club is having a fundraiser to bring a famous basketball team to town. The club would like the bank to be a place where people in the community can purchase tickets to see the team play. Is this OK, since they are paying for and receiving something of value?
As long as this is for the purchase of tickets to the game itself and not for lottery or raffle tickets to win seats at the game, this is permissible. Even if the bank is receiving something of value, if there's no chance or skill involved for a shot at a prize--in other words, anyone can come in and pay for a ticket, which allows them to go to the game--it does not raise issues with the anti-lottery restrictions.
