Boyd Gaming Announces 2021 ‘Wreaths of Hope’ Winners
Nearly $65,000 awarded to 34 local non-profit organizations; More than 47,000 customer votes cast

Boyd Gaming awarded a prize pool of nearly $65,000 to 34 southern Nevada charities that participated in the Company’s seventh annual holiday competition, “Wreaths of Hope.” Non-profit organizations that decorated wreaths at The Orleans, Aliante, Gold Coast, Suncoast, Sam’s Town, Cannery and Main Street Station received prizes based on more than 47,000 customer votes cast from November 22 through December 17.

This holiday season, seven participating Las Vegas properties each awarded an $8,500 prize pool, with a first-place prize of $3,000 and a guaranteed minimum cash prize of $1,000 for all participants. For the first time, the competition also welcomed some of Las Vegas’ favorite sports teams: the Las Vegas Aviators, Henderson Silver Knights, Las Vegas Raiders and UNLV Athletics. The sports teams competed at The Orleans and prizes will benefit their respective charitable foundations.

In addition to the nearly 37,000 in-person votes at the seven properties, more than 10,000 votes were cast online through the Wreaths of Hope social media contest. An additional prize pool of $5,000 was awarded to the best-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 (in addition to any prize money the charities received from in-person voting).
