Gaming Industry Raises $100,000 for National Center for Responsible Gaming
It was a round well played! Representatives from across the gaming industry “chipped in” to support research on gambling disorders and responsible gaming education at the recent 12th annual AGEM/AGA Golf Classic presented by JCM Global The event raised $100,000 for the National Center for Responsible Gaming (NCRG), the only national nonprofit organization dedicated to funding research on gambling disorders and increasing awareness about responsible gaming.

“For nearly 15 years, the NCRG has been funding independent research in the field of gambling disorders and advancing public awareness about responsible gaming. We are grateful for the industry’s lasting commitment to addressing these critical issues and thankful for the ongoing generous support of the Golf Classic’s hosts, sponsors and participants to help continue our work in this field,” said Glenn Christenson, chairman of the NCRG.

Including the funds raised this year, the event has raised nearly $850,000 for the NCRG in its 12-year history. Organizers soon will launch a new “Drive for $1 Million,” campaign with the goal of bringing the overall fundraising total for the tournament to $1 million.

“The industry has a strong reputation for rallying around the NCRG and supporting the important work that it carries out,” said Frank J. Fahrenkopf, Jr., president and CEO of the American Gaming Association (AGA). “We have a lot of exciting things planned as part of the ‘Drive for $1 Million,’ effort, and I’m confident that the industry will come through as it always has in its support of this event.”

Sponsored by the Association of Gaming Equipment Manufacturers (AGEM) and the American Gaming Association (AGA), the AGEM/AGA Golf Classic is a fundraiser for NCRG, the only national nonprofit organization dedicated to funding research on gambling disorders and increasing awareness about responsible gaming. This year’s event was held May 10 at the award-winning Cascata in Boulder City, Nev.
