At last year's tournament, about 85 operators and vendors played at blackjack, poker, and roulette tables, and participated in a silent auction to raise $17,000 minus event costs for the association's lobbying efforts in Sacramento.

The event also provides an opportunity to meet and mingle with the Torrance-based LCT Magazine editorial team of Martin Romjue, Lexi Tucker, and Jim Luff.
