“Strikes for Responsible Gaming” is the theme as attendees at the LaFleur’s Lottery Symposium come together to bowl on Tuesday, June 3. Participants at the charitable event will enjoy an evening of food, fun and bowling at Lucky Strike Lanes in Washington, DC, with proceeds benefiting the National Council on Problem Gambling (NCPG). The event is hosted by TLF Publications and sponsored by Tipp24 SE, Connecticut Lottery, Scientific Games, Virginia Lottery, Linq3 and GTECH.
“La Fleur’s Magazine was delighted to partner with the National Council on Problem Gambling and promote its 2nd Annual Strikes for Responsible Gaming event at our La Fleur’s 2014 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 participates will have a blast! I also know that some symposium attendees will be working on improving their bowling skills before the next event in 2015!”
The wide array of attendees is expected to include lottery and gaming executives from across the country and around the world.
Proceeds support NCPG’s programs, including the National Problem Gambling Helpline (800.522.4700) which received nearly 300,000 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.
