If you are getting set to sell alcohol at an upcoming fundraiser, or community event, you may be in for some sticker shock.
Over the last 15 years, if you intended to sell booze at your event, it cost $75 for up to three days.
Now the Alcohol and Gaming Commission has increased the prices.
It will now be $150 a day.
If you have a three day event, what was $75 is now $450.
Sandor Johnson, who operates Potter Settlement Winery in Tweed says that will hurt smaller events, or charity functions.
He says there are so many larger issues at stake.
Johnson adds that tourism and charities will be hurt, as will the poor.
Ray Kahnert is with the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario.
He says the previous costs were quite dated.
Kahnert says he believes the cost should not affect the success of most events.
