Boyd Gaming Spreads Holiday Cheer with ‘Wreaths of Hope’

Boyd Gaming destinations nationwide are making the season of giving brighter with the Company’s annual holiday competition, “Wreaths of Hope.” More than 140 charities nationwide will compete in the 2020 holiday tradition, as Boyd Gaming properties across the country award a combined prize pool of nearly $150,000.

To allow for social distancing by participants, Boyd Gaming is temporarily changing this annual, companywide event from “Trees of Hope” to “Wreaths of Hope,” inspired by the wreath-decorating competition held at Evangeline Downs Racetrack Casino Hotel for the first time last year.

This year, nonprofit organizations throughout the United States will be decorating wreaths in the spirit of their organization to be displayed at Boyd Gaming properties across the nation. There are 18 Boyd Gaming properties in seven states participating in the 2020 competition.

Boyd Gaming team members and guests are invited to vote for their favorite charity’s decorated wreath to help them win much-needed funding and receive invaluable exposure for their missions during this challenging year. To vote in this year’s Wreaths of Hope competition, visit www.boydgaming.com/wreaths-of-hope-2020 to vote online or vote in-person at select Boyd Gaming destinations. Individuals must be 21 or older to cast a vote online. An active B Connected card account is required to cast a vote on property. The public is also invited to follow the event and support their favorite charity on social media using the hashtag #WreathsofHope.
