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, The Orleans, Gold Coast, Suncoast, Sam’s Town, Cannery and Main Street Station and competed for the top prizes of a nearly $65,000 prize pool. Customer votes determined the winners, with more than 38,000 total votes cast.
From November 21 through December 16, 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.
