|TVG Issues Reminder on AWARE Program Responsible Wagering Community Grants|
|1/28/2007 - LOS ANGELES, CA, March 12, 2008 -- As a part of TVG’s proactive commitment to responsible wagering, TVG is reminding eligible nonprofit organizations that AWARE Program Responsible Wagering Community Grants are available. The financial grants, which are made quarterly to organizations in states where TVG offers its services, will be administered by the Winners Federation, a national organization of racing industry members committed to combating addictions in the racing workplace.
The Responsible Wagering Community Grants, which will be limited to activities related to pari-mutuel wagering, will recognize responsible-wagering efforts provided by nonprofit organizations in four areas: awareness, prevention, training and treatment. TVG’s wagering services are offered in California, Florida, Idaho, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, Massachusetts, North Dakota, Ohio, Oregon, Virginia, Washington and Wyoming. TVG also offers wagering services in New York as a contractor for Yonkers Raceway. The first AWARE grants were made in 2005.
To obtain an application for an AWARE Program Responsible Wagering Community Grant, nonprofit charitable organizations should visit the Winners Federation website, www.winnersfederation.org, or write to:
