Boyd Gaming donating more than $40K to local charities

20 November 2017

(PRESS RELEASE) -- Thirty-five nonprofit organizations will spread holiday cheer as they compete in Boyd Gaming's third annual tree-decorating competition, Trees of Hope. Boyd Gaming is awarding more than $40,000 in this year's competition to charities participating at seven properties in the Las Vegas Valley.

"In one of our most celebrated events of the year, Trees of Hope demonstrates our Company's culture of giving back to the communities we call home," said Marianne Johnson, Vice Chairman, Executive Vice President, and Chief Diversity Officer of Boyd Gaming. "We look forward to the opportunity to applaud many of the charities that make Las Vegas such a wonderful community."

Over the past two years, Boyd Gaming has donated more than $55,000 to Southern Nevada-based charities through Trees of Hope. Originating 10 years ago at Boyd Gaming's Delta Downs Racetrack Casino Hotel in Vinton, Louisiana, Trees of Hope is a nationwide tree-decorating competition benefitting nonprofit organizations in the communities served by Boyd Gaming.

On Monday, 27 November, participating charities will decorate their trees at Aliante, California, Cannery, Gold Coast, The Orleans, Sam's Town and Suncoast. Beginning Tuesday, 28 November through Sunday, 17 December, the public is invited to visit each property and vote for their favorite charity. Each Las Vegas Valley property will award a $5,000 prize pool to participating charities, including a first place prize of $2,000. Winners will be decided by public vote at each property. A Boyd Gaming Player's card account is required to vote on property.

For the first time, the community can also give their favorite tree a second chance to win by voting for it online on the Boyd Gaming Facebook page (@BoydGaming) beginning Tuesday, 28 November through Sunday, 17 December. The social media contest will award an additional prize pool to the top three performing charities valleywide with a $2,500 first place prize, $1,500 second place prize and $1,000 third place prize.
