|The American Gaming Association (AGA) and JCM Global have announced that they will celebrate their decade-long partnership for responsible gaming at the tenth annual Golf Classic in Cascata in Boulder City, Nevada, on April 28.|
The event is a fundraiser for the National Center for Responsible Gaming (NCRG) and has raised more than $500,000 since its inception, including $75,000 last year.
The Golf Classic draws a virtual who's who of the gaming industry including top executives from a broad spectrum of the industry's leading land gambling companies, operators, manufacturers and testing laboratories. Participants this year will begin their day with an exhibition by master coach Butch Harmon before moving on to the rolling fairways.
'We have made tremendous strides in our research at the NCRG and we continue to shed light on problem gambling,' said Phil Satre, Chairman for NCRG.
“We are very grateful to our partners at JCM and the AGA to bring the industry together to raise money and raise the level of awareness on problem gambling.'
'Ever since we conceived this event ten years ago, we have advocated the important work of the NCRG and we are very happy to continue our relationship with the AGA in benefiting the NCRG,' said Aki Isoi, President for JCM Global.
'We are also very grateful to the industry for their continual support of this event.'
'Responsible gaming is something that the gaming industry focuses on 365 days a year and the industry's support of this event and the NCRG is proof of its commitment to fighting problem gambling,' said Frank Fahrekopf, President and Chief Executive Officer for the AGA.
'We are grateful for our decade-long partnership with JCM Global and look forward to many more years of this top-notch event.'
