4303.206 F-6 permits issued to nonprofit organizations.

(A) The division of liquor control may issue an F-6 permit to a nonprofit organization that is exempt from federal income taxation under the "Internal Revenue Code of 1986," 100 Stat. 2085, 26 U.S.C.A. 501(c)(3) , as amended, to sell wine at an event organized and conducted by, and for the benefit of, the nonprofit organization.

(B) An F-6 permit may be issued to a nonprofit organization if the premises of the event for which the F-6 permit is sought is located in a precinct, or at a particular location in a precinct, in which the sale of wine is otherwise permitted by law. The premises of the event for which an F-6 permit is issued shall be clearly defined and sufficiently restricted to allow proper enforcement of the permit by state and local law enforcement officers. If an F-6 permit is issued for all or a portion of the same premises for which another class of permit is issued, that permit holder's privileges shall be suspended in that portion of the premises in which the F-6 permit is in effect.

(C) A holder of an F-6 permit may charge an admission price to attend the event for which the permit is issued, which price includes the consumption of wine or sale of wine by the individual drink.

(D) A holder of an F-6 permit may sell wine in its original sealed container by auction at the event for which the permit is issued.

(E) Nothing in this chapter or Chapter 4301. of the Revised Code or any rule adopted by the liquor control commission prevents the holder of an F-6 permit from obtaining wine by donation from a manufacturer, supplier, or wholesale distributor of wine or from any person who is not the holder of a permit issued by the division of liquor control.

(F) Notwithstanding any contrary provision of section 4301.24 of the Revised Code or of any rule adopted by the liquor control commission, employees of a manufacturer, supplier, or wholesale distributor may assist the holder of an F-6 permit in serving wine at the event for which the permit is issued.

(G) The division shall prepare and make available an F-6 permit application form and may require applicants for the permit to provide information necessary for the administration of this section.

(H) No F-6 permit shall be effective for more than seventy-two consecutive hours, and sales of wine under the permit shall be confined to the same hours permitted to the holder of a D-2 permit. The division shall not issue more than six F-6 permits per calendar year to the same nonprofit organization.

(I) The fee for an F-6 permit is fifty dollars.
