State Sen. Randy Vulakovich (R-Shaler) is holding an informational seminar about recent changes to the small games of chance law that affect prizes, regulations and other aspects of the popular fund-raising events.

The seminar will be held from 6 to 9 p.m. Thursday, March 14, at the A.W. Beattie Career Center at 9600 Babcock Boulevard in Allison Park.

Seating is limited, so the senator's office is asking groups to send only one or two people to the seminar and to RSVP to Sen. Vulakovich at 412-487-6600 by Monday, March 11. His 40th District includes Ross Township and West View.

A representative from the Pennsylvania State Police's Bureau of Liquor Enforcement will attend to discuss the changes to the law and how it will be enforced.
