The Valley Charitable Gaming Society belongs and supports BCACG (British Columbia Association for Charitable Gaming) and I just wanted to take a minute to remind everyone how important it is that we our ongoing fight with the Provincial Government to return and/or increase our funding levels back to where they were in 2008.

We originally had two Provincial Gaming Associations in which we held membership on your behalf.  These Associations were the “B.C. Association for Charitable Gaming” (BCACG) and the “Bingo Council of BC” (BCBC) of which I was President.

In March of 2012 the Bingo Council of BC dissolved itself due to the changes in Gaming that did away with “Bingo Affiliations” and put us all into “Direct Access” mode.  BCBC  passed a resolution to donate our residual funds of approximately $5000 to BCACG. 

BCBC also sent a letter acknowledging v BCACG as a strong and viable organization, and that “we” BCBC members support their ongoing  efforts to ensure that government honors the guarantee of gaming funding to charities and non-profits.

With that said, I am forwarding you an opportunity to join and support this organization along with maintaining your local gaming association.  The membership fee can be taken out of your gaming account.

 BCACG holds a yearly Symposium in Vancouver and each organization has an opportunity to attend.
