Boyd Gaming Corporation has announced that it awarded more than $145,000 to non-profit organizations across the country in the Company’s annual holiday competition, “Wreaths of Hope.”
More than 135 non-profit organizations participated in the 2020 competition, decorating wreaths that were displayed online and at Boyd Gaming properties nationwide. A total of 18 Boyd Gaming destinations participated in Wreaths of Hope in Nevada, Illinois, Kansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, and Pennsylvania. Winners were decided directly by Boyd Gaming customers, who were invited to vote for their favorite charities online and in-person at select participating properties.
Since launching Trees of Hope in 2007 in Louisiana, Boyd Gaming has awarded more than $850,000 to hundreds of non-profit organizations in the annual competition. The $145,000 national prize pool awarded in 2020 represented the largest prize pool in the history of the competition.
