Take a Break Campaign

We are asking that our TAKE A BREAK campaign be observed again, asking those who struggle with gambling addiction to take a step back, check in to make sure if they are gambling they are able to do it responsibly.  If they are unable to stick to their money and time limits, that they seek help.  If you know someone who struggles, this is the time to start a conversation.  There is help, there is hope.
