Recent crackdowns by the state on raffles have some charitable organizations worried they may be next to be busted.“We have a lot of great organizations here trying to help people,” said District Attorney General Lisa Zavogiannis. “We want to be sure they do it the right way.”Her comments come after citations have been issued across the state, including one here, against organizations caught holding fundraising raffles.
