Research in the area of responsible gaming has made incredible strides over the past 20 years. Now the 18th annual AGEM/AGA Golf Classic presented by JCM Global will further advance the cause by raising money to expand research conducted by the National Center for Responsible Gaming.
Over its history, the event has raised more than $1.5 million in support of the NCRG, including $140,000 at last year’s tournament. This year’s event challenges participants to “Go 18 for 18” when the Golf Classic returns to the award-winning greens of Cascata in Boulder City, Nev. on Tuesday, April 26, 2016.
“We are grateful for the support of the JCM, AGEM, AGA and the participating companies,” said Alan Feldman, NCRG chairman and executive vice president of global government and industry affairs for MGM Resorts International. “The generosity of the golf tournament sponsors and players reflect the strong commitment of the gaming industry to finding effective prevention and treatment of gambling disorder through the National Center for Responsible Gaming.”
