LAS VEGAS (July 25, 2022) – The AGEM & AGA Golf Classic Presented by JCM Global came roaring back in 2022, raising $180,000 for the International Center for Responsible Gaming (ICRG). To date, the event has raised nearly $2.5 million to support the ICRG and its research into problem gambling.
“I would like to acknowledge the amazing partnership that we have with JCM Global and the other title sponsors AGA and AGEM,” said ICRG President Art Paikowsky. “We saw an amazing 73% revenue growth over the prior year thanks to all of the sponsors and the 144 golfers at this sold-out event. These funds will go a long way in supporting our mission of funding scientifically based research to better inform the industry, regulators, legislators, and the media.”
The event drew a broad range of support from across the regulated gaming industry spectrum, with operators, suppliers, and independent test labs from across the country coming together to support the event and the ICRG’s mission.
Title and presenting sponsors were the Association of Gaming Equipment Manufacturers (AGEM), the American Gaming Association (AGA) and JCM Global (JCM). Other key sponsors were Aristocrat Gaming, Caesars Entertainment, Catapult Global, Everi, Fantalooks, GGB Magazine, ICE London 2023, Konami, Light & Wonder, and Patriot Gaming.
“We are grateful to the companies throughout the industry who support the annual Golf Classic charity event. At JCM, we are honored to produce the tournament, and we can do that because of the generous support from our players and sponsors,” said Dave Kubajak, JCM’s SVP of Sales, Marketing & Operations.
