Local Charities Invited to Participate in IP’s ‘Wreaths of Hope’ Holiday Competition

BILOXI, Miss.IP Casino Resort Spa invites local non-profit organizations to submit their entry to participate in Boyd Gaming’s holiday fundraising competition, Wreaths of Hope.

Wreaths of Hope is a charitable, wreath-decorating competition where local non-profit organizations have the chance to win cash prizes based on customer vote, as well as gain invaluable exposure in the community. This holiday season, IP will award up to $10,000 to 12 local charities to support the tremendous work they are doing to serve our communities during this challenging year.

The wreaths will be displayed throughout IP, and casino guests can vote for their favorite charity’s decorated wreath online or in-person at the property. The wreath that receives the most combined votes will win the top prize of $3,000. All other participants will also be eligible for a cash prize.

The ready-to-decorate wreaths will be supplied by IP at no charge to participating organizations. Decorated wreaths will be due back to the property for display by Friday, November 27.

Organizations interested in participating can contact Tracy Finerman at 228-436-3000 or TeresaFinerman@boydgaming.com for more information or to sign up. Applicants must represent a certified 501(c)(3) non-profit organization serving or located in the Mississippi Gulf Coast community. Proof of tax status must be provided when submitting an entry. The deadline to submit an entry to participate in Wreaths of Hope is Monday, November 16.
