Golf Tourney to Benefit NCRG Set

The gaming industry’s top executives will come together to “chip in” to support research on gambling and responsible gaming education at the 12th annual AGEM/AGA Golf Classic presented by JCM Global. Sponsored by the Association of Gaming Equipment Manufacturers and the American Gaming Association, the AGEM/AGA Golf Classic is a fund-raiser for the National Center for Responsible Gaming, the only national nonprofit organization dedicated to funding research on gambling disorders and increasing awareness about responsible gaming.

The tournament takes place May 10 on the stunning fairways and impeccable greens of the award-winning Cascata in Boulder City, Nevada. Since its inception, the event has raised nearly $800,000 for the NCRG, including $80,000 last year.

Player reservations and sponsorship options are now available. Sponsorships range from $75 to $50,000; raffle prize donations are also being accepted. For registration or sponsorship information, contact JCM Global at 702-651-3472 or visit www.golf.jcmglobal.com.

“With the support of the gaming industry, the NCRG continues to fund critical research breakthroughs in the field of gambling disorders and advance awareness about the importance of responsible gaming,” said Glenn Christenson, chairman of the NCRG. “Events such as the AGEM/AGA Golf Classic presented by JCM Global enable us to continue delivering on our mission of research and education while providing industry professionals with a unique and enjoyable opportunity to support this important cause.”

“The gaming industry looks forward to this event every year and the Association of Gaming Equipment Manufacturers is proud to once again serve as a title sponsor,” said AGEM Executive Director Marcus Prater. “There’s nothing like a round of golf at Cascata, and the fact that it provides such a strong financial boost in support of responsible gaming makes the day even more satisfying.”
