Boyd Gaming awards "Wreaths of Hope" Winners

21 December 2022

(PRESS RELEASE) -- For the eighth consecutive year, Boyd Gaming celebrated 35 southern Nevada charities that participated in the Company’s holiday competition, “Wreaths of Hope.” Participating non-profit organizations decorated wreaths at Aliante Casino & Hotel & Spa, The Orleans Hotel and Casino, Gold Coast Hotel and Casino, Suncoast Hotel & Casino, Sam’s Town Las Vegas, Cannery Casino & Hotel, and Main Street Station Casino Brewery and Hotel while competing for top prizes of a nearly $65,000 prize pool. Customer votes determined the winners, with more than 38,000 total votes cast.

From 21 November through 16 December, the public was invited to vote for their favorite charity’s wreath at each participating property or online via Boyd Gaming’s social media platforms. The seven Las Vegas destinations each awarded a $8,500 prize pool, with a first-place prize of $3,000 and a minimum cash prize of $1,000 for all participants.

The fan-favorite competition garnered more than 26,000 in-person votes, in addition to the 12,000 online votes cast through the Wreaths of Hope social media contest. An additional prize pool of $5,000 was awarded to the top three performing charities in the social media competition, with a $2,500 first-place prize, $1,500 second-place prize, and $1,000 third-place prize.
