Unfortunately your Financial Officer is correct. In Massachusetts as an American Legion Hall, as a non-profit, would need a special "one day license" even just to to give out gift baskets with alcohol. The law does not distinguish between giving out and selling. The local licensing authority, from the Town, would need to grant the alcoholic beverages license to you for the fundraising event. Even if the by-laws don’t mention the license, all Congressional Chartered veterans Organizations must comply with local and state law regarding codes and laws. Even if you buy the bottles form the Legion itself you would still need the license to give out the liquor on premises.
