Charity poker fundraising event - can I promote it with Adwords?

# 1
Ad Grants Featured Contributor

Hello.

 

A US non-profit has a Google Grant. They want to use it to promote their annual charity fundraising Texas Hold'em event. 

 

Sponsors would be given a number of chips, depending on how much they donated. There would be cash prizes.

 

As I understand it, that use of Adwords is normally disallowed in the US. But would there be any exemption for a registered non-profit?
