What’s New:

On July 25th, we were invited to Valley United Presbyterian Church in Waverly to present our PGRC and some facts on gambling to their congregation. We are excited to hear members of the community have taken interest in our giveaways.  Looking forward to sustaining partnerships down in the Southern Tier portion of our region!

The Finger Lakes and Central PGRCs are teaming up to provide Responsible Gambling Training to both Vernon and Tioga Downs Casinos in August.  We will be providing education about the warning signs of problem gambling and how to assist a patron who may be struggling to over 500 staff at both facilities.

We are thrilled to be collaborating with Consumer Credit Counseling Services to offer a financial education/problem gambling workshop designed to assist college students.  This workshop will be free and available to all colleges and universities in NYS!
