Washington, DC, (PRWEB) May 24, 2013
"Strikes for Responsible Gaming” was the theme as attendees at the LaFleur’s Lottery Symposium came together to bowl on Tuesday, April 30. Participants at the charitable event enjoyed an evening of food, fun and bowling at Lucky Strike Lanes in Washington, DC, with proceeds benefitting the National Council on Problem Gambling (NCPG). The event was hosted by TLF Publications and sponsored by Diamond Game, the Georgia, Louisiana, Maryland and Virginia Lotteries.
“La Fleur’s Magazine was delighted to partner with the National Council on Problem Gambling and promote its Strikes for Responsible Gaming event at our La Fleur’s 2013 Lottery Symposium,” said Terri Markle, co-publisher, La Fleur’s Magazine. “Lotteries work extremely hard to raise awareness about excessive gambling and where people can go for help. This event served as a fundraiser as well as a networking opportunity for lottery officials and their vendor partners. Everyone who participated had a blast! I also know that some symposium attendees will be working on improving their bowling skills before the next event in 2014!”
The wide array of attendees included lottery and gaming executives from across the country and around the world. Peter-Paul de Goeij, Director of External and Legal Affairs, Tipp24 stated: “It was a great event on the sidelines of the conference, good fun and a nice break away from the official program - a good way to meet our colleagues on a less serious note and we managed to win for a good cause as well!
Proceeds support NCPG’s programs, including the National Problem Gambling Helpline (800.522.4700) which received over 313,000 calls last year alone. The Helpline is a vital lifeline that connects problem gamblers and their families to help in their area. NCPG is the national advocate for problem gamblers and their families. NCPG is neutral on legalized gambling and works with all stakeholders to promote responsible gaming.
