Charitable Gaming/Small towns

Please reconsider the 40% donation.  As a member of 2 local organizations in my area of Moneta I can assure you this will hurt numerous charities that we contribute to.  Some areas of the State are not as wealthy as others.  In small towns with smaller memberships this will drastically effect the work we do.  Please consider the people who are helped through our organizations, the sick, underprivileged, children, veterans, elderly, research programs, the hungry, the cold and many more causes.  We do make a difference so I ask you to consider lowering the mandatory donation to only 15% - 20% so we may continue to exist and help our charities and communities.
