19th Annual AGEM/AGA Golf Classic Presented by JCM Global Breaks Fundraising Records
The gaming industry broke all previous fundraising records at the 19th annual AGEM/AGA Golf Classic Presented by JCM Global, bringing in an astounding $155,000. Proceeds directly benefit research conducted by the National Center for Responsible Gaming. To date, the Golf Classic has raised more than $1.7 million to advance the NCRG’s important research. 

“We are thrilled that the golf classic broke all records this year. The money will help NCRG find effective treatment for gambling disorder,” said NCRG executive director Russell Sanna.

“We are honored and grateful to have the opportunity to produce the AGEM/AGA Golf Classic. The NCRG, its staff, and its mission play a vital role in the gaming industry, and we are humbled to play a small role in helping them achieve success. We are thankful to the many players and sponsors from across the industry who joined us in raising the bar and breaking all previous fundraising records for this event,” said JCM Vice President Tom Nieman.
