This Alcoholic Beverage Policy shall apply to all rooms within the Foundation of Shalom Park facility.

 

General:

  • The North Carolina Alcoholic Beverage Control Commission requires that a permit be obtained if an individual, group, or agency plans to:

o      SERVE mixed drinks (spirituous liquor) for an event at the facility.

o      SELL beer (malt beverages), wine (fortified and unfortified), or mixed drinks (spirituous liquor) for an event at the facility.

  • The individual, group, or agency running the event shall be responsible for obtaining the permit, and for any fees charged for the permit.
  • This permit must be on display in a prominent place during such said event.
  • Wine used for sacramental purposes, such as for Shabbat and Kiddush, are exempt, and a permit is not required.
  • The individual, group, or agency running the event shall be responsible for ensuring that any and all areas serving and/or storing alcohol are attended by adult supervision at all times. All vendors, participants, and guests must be in compliance with NC ABC regulations and any and all State and local laws.
  • In the event that any inebriated guests are detected, Foundation Security and/or CMPD may detain them until a designated driver has been found, or taxi called, to transport them to their destination.
  • Excessive noise or other disruptive behavior is prohibited. Foundation Security and/or CMPD may remove any person(s) believed to be disrupting or obstructing the proper operation and management of the facility.

Types of Permits:

  • LIMITED SPECIAL OCCASION PERMIT
  • This type of permit authorizes the permittee to bring spirituous liquor onto the premises with the permission of the owner of the property, and to SERVE those alcoholic beverages to the permittee’s guests at a reception, wedding party, party, or other special occasion being held there.
  • The fee for this permit is $50.00.
  • SPECIAL ONE-TIME PERMIT
  • This type of permit is issued to tax-exempt non-profit or political organizations for fundraising events.
  • In one instance, this permit may be issued to a nonprofit organization to allow the RETAIL SALE of malt beverages, unfortified wine, or fortified wine, at a single fundraising event of that organization.
  • In another instance, this permit may be issued to a nonprofit organization or a political organization to SERVE wine, malt beverages, and spirituous liquor at a ticketed event held to allow the organization to raise funds.
  • The fee for this permit is $50.00.

 

  • MIXED BEVERAGES CATERING PERMIT
  • This type of permit authorizes a hotel or restaurant that has a mixed beverages permit to bring spirituous liquor onto the premises where the hotel or restaurant is catering food for an event, and to SERVE the liquor to guests at the event.

 

  • ANNUAL PERMITS
  • Agencies may have the option of obtaining annual permits for malt beverages, wine, and mixed beverages.
  • Fees for annual permits vary depending on the type or types of permit(s) obtained.

 

Recommendations and Guidelines:

  • FOR A WEDDING PARTY, B’NAI MITZVAH, OR OTHER RECEPTION
  • Check with your caterer; if they will be serving drinks, and have a Mixed Beverages Catering Permit, and have it on display at the event, it will not be necessary to obtain one of your own.
  • If you plan on serving your own drinks, you will need to obtain a Limited Special Occasion Permit.
  • In either case above, beer and wine do not require a permit.

 

  • FOR A NON-PROFIT FUNDRAISER
  • For a ticketed event, check with your caterer; if they will be serving drinks, and have a Mixed Beverages Catering Permit, and have it on display at the event, it will not be necessary to obtain one of your own. Wine and beer will not be permitted.
  • For a ticketed event, if you plan on serving your own drinks, you will need to obtain a Special One-Time Permit.
  • For a non-ticketed event with the retail sale of wine and beer, you will need a Special One-Time Permit. Mixed drinks will not be permitted.
  • GUIDELINES CHART
  • Please refer to the simplified selection chart on the following page. This chart is intended to be used as a guideline only, and is not the final authority.
