The 23rd annual AGEM & AGA Golf Classic Presented by JCM Global has been scheduled for May 11, 2022, at Cascata Golf Club in Boulder City, Nevada. The fundraising event benefits the International Center for Responsible Gaming (ICRG) and its mission to advance research, education, and awareness for responsible gaming.
Registration for the Golf Classic is now open, and sponsorships and player positions are available on a first-come/first-sold basis, according to a press release. For more information on these opportunities, interested parties can visit the event’s site for details. According to organizers, the event is “shaping up to be an un-fore-gettable day.”
The ICRG was founded in 1996 as a charitable organization and, since then, has supported research projects cited nearly 30,000 times in scientific literature. Its President, Art Paikowsky, describes the golf classic as “a mainstay for the ICRG.”

According to Paikowsky, the event enables the center “to support ground-breaking research” that results in effective treatment and prevention, while also providing the industry with the tools necessary for conducting responsible gambling strategies.
