The Houston County Commission appointed members to an advisory board Monday.

They'll work with Country Crossing to make sure local charities are getting their share of funds from electronic bingo.

The commission appointed three members to the Houston County Foundation's advisory board.

The foundation will work along with the group that runs Country Crossing's electronic bingo operation, The Houston Economic Development Association.

They will recommend what charities get money and how much.

HEDA will pay 100% of it's net revenues to the Houston County foundation for distribution to local charities.

“If you will, it gets more hands in the process, more eyes in the process, to be sure the projects that are being funded are the right projects,” said Houston County Commission Chairman Mark Culver.

Officials eventually hope to distribute $2 million dollars a year to charities from Country Crossings' electronic bingo operation.
