Plans to revive the annual Dexter Daze $10,000 raffle this year received a greenlight from the Dexter Village Council on Monday.
The council voted unanimously to approve a charitable gaming license application from the Dexter Area Historical Society & Museum (DAHSM) at its regular meeting.
The historical society submitted its request to the village and filed an application with the Michigan Gaming Control Board, the Department of Treasury, and the Internal Revenue Service for the necessary license to hold and sell tickets for the raffle.
The DAHSM is taking over the raffle from the Dexter Kiwanis Club, following the club's disolvement in 2012.
Proceeds from this year's raffle will be used to help pay down the mortgage on the Gordon Hall mansion, according to the Dexter Leader.
"We’ll do everything that the Kiwanis did except (proceeds) will be for Gordon Hall," board member Beverly Hill told the council.
