Maine law says that only nonprofit groups raising money for their causes are all
Maine law says that only nonprofit groups raising money for their causes are allowed to operate bingo games. Former state representative Annette Hoglund and members of her family own Yankee Bingo on Allen Avenue in Portland, and games at the hall frequently benefit a group called Committee to Elect. Vincent DePaolo owns VIP Bingo of Scarborough, and his nephew Stephen DePaolo runs the Munjoy S&A Club, which rents VIP Bingo to operate games. Hoglund, DePaolo and others are raking in thousands from bingo games, and donating just a fraction of the money to charitable organizations. Details, related article on Annette and Peter Hoglund and Vincent DePaolo and their problems with the law.
