Boyd Gaming Corporation announced that it donated more than $200,000 to nearly 190 non-profit organizations nationwide in its 2023 “Wreaths of Hope” and “Trees of Hope” competition.
A total of 186 non-profits across 11 states participated in the annual holiday competition, with participants decorating wreaths or trees in the spirit of their organization’s mission. Cash prizes were determined by votes from Boyd Gaming customers, who were invited to vote for their favorite charities online and in-person throughout the holiday season. The 2023 national prize pool was the largest in the 16-year history of the contest.
Since Trees of Hope debuted at Delta Downs Racetrack Casino Hotel in 2007, the annual competition has expanded to 26 Boyd Gaming properties nationwide, with Boyd properties participating in Nevada, California, Kansas, Missouri, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Louisiana, and Mississippi. To date, the Company has awarded nearly $1.5 million to non-profit organizations through Wreaths of Hope and Trees of Hope.
