Charity Bingo

In 2003, the citizens of Greene County, Alabama approved amendment 743 to the State of Alabama constitution.

The constitutional amendment provides for local jurisdiction of electronic bingo within Greene County, Alabama.

The subject amendment authorized the chief law enforcement officer to develop and provide jurisdiction of all approved charity electronic bingo within the county.

Sheriff Joe Benison has been successfully administrating the codified constitutional amendment 743 within Greene County and authorized the issuance of a charity bingo license to YPAO.

The center point of YPAO’s development is River’s Edge Entertainment Destination, which is located on sixteen acres along Highway 11 in Knoxville, Alabama.

YPAO, in existence for more than 30 years, principally provides after school tutorial and educational enhancement programs to the youth of Greene County. In addition the YPAO seeks to encourage and foster overall academic achievement and personal development of Greene County’s youth from K-12. Finally, the YPAO seeks to provide opportunities allowing Greene County youth to excel in education, community development and community services.
