Potawatomi Bingo Casino will receive the Corporate Social Responsibility Award from the National Council on Problem Gambling (NCPG) on Friday, June 11.
Awards are given annually to individuals and organizations in a number of categories to recognize their work in addressing the issue of problem gambling.
“Advocating responsible gambling is our Casino’s number one social priority,” said Mike Goodrich, general manager of Potawatomi Bingo Casino. “We’re extremely proud to be honored for our efforts, but we will not rest on our laurels. Gambling should always be looked at as recreational. When it becomes a problem for our guests, we need to help connect them to the resources they can turn to for help.”
Potawatomi Bingo Casino has placed an increased emphasis on addressing the issue of problem gambling and has taken a variety of proactive approaches to combat the cause including contributing $140,000 to the Wisconsin Council on Problem Gambling since 2008.
