    Keep the money- it was a gift for an unrelated event.

    It seems like you may be feeling guilty about it?  If you are, donate some of it.  But I would not return the money – family harmony is probably more important.

    Donate some of it to an animal rescue group. So that more dogs can get loving homes like yours. 🙂

    do not return but if you want to “do good” donate it to an alcoholics program

    That’s tough. I’d want to wash my hands of it, but at the same time, as a PP said, it was a gift from an unrelated event.

    The money your uncle spends on alcohol to get drunk could feed people too. I hate when people bring up how others spend their money. It’s a personal decision. I mean, who’s to say you don’t already donate to charities that help others? Ok, a little sidebar, but I had to say that.
