(PRESS RELEASE) -- Boyd Gaming today awarded a prize pool of $45,000 to 35 southern Nevada charities that participated in the Company’s fifth annual ‘Trees of Hope’ tree-decorating competition at a celebratory check presentation ceremony held at Suncoast Showroom. Non-profit organizations that decorated trees at Aliante, Cannery, Eastside Cannery, Gold Coast, Main Street Station, Suncoast and Orleans received prizes based on nearly 180,000 customer votes cast from 26 November through 15 December.

This holiday season, Boyd Gaming awarded a first place prize of $2,000, second place prize of $1,500 and third place prize of $1,000 at each participating property based on customer votes. Honorary mentioned charities also received a $500 cash prize.

More than 14,000 additional votes were cast in a separate Trees of Hope social media contest online. The social media contest awarded a prize pool of $5,000 to the top three performing charities citywide with a $2,500 first place prize, $1,500 second place prize and $1,000 third place prize.
