Southern Nevada Charities Invited to Participate in Boyd Gaming’s Eighth Annual ‘Wreaths of Hope’ Competition
Deadline for nonprofits to submit entries is October 7
Boyd Gaming invites nonprofit organizations across Southern Nevada to submit their entry to participate in one of Las Vegas’ favorite holiday traditions, Wreaths of Hope.
Boyd Gaming will host 35 local charities during this year’s wreath-decorating competition at Aliante, Cannery, Gold Coast, Sam’s Town, Suncoast, The Orleans and California. Boyd Gaming customers can once again vote for their favorite decorated wreath at each participating destination as local charities compete for the top prize at each property.
This holiday season, Boyd Gaming will award nearly $65,000 to nonprofits throughout the Las Vegas Valley. The top-performing charities at each participating Boyd Gaming property will be awarded a grand prize, with a guaranteed minimum cash prize of $1,000 for all participating organizations. A second contest via social media will add another opportunity for charities to win additional cash awards.
Applicants must represent a certified 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization serving the Southern Nevada community.
Proof of tax exempt status, such as a copy of a Form W-9 or IRS determination letter confirming the nonprofit’s 501(c)(3) status, as well as a description of the charity must be provided when submitting an entry. Boyd Gaming will not consider an individual person, team or school-sponsored program or organizations that discriminate for any reason, including race, color, creed, religion, age, gender or national origin.
Charities can submit an entry via email to [email protected] by Friday, October 7.
Selected nonprofits will be notified of their participation for Wreaths of Hope by October 31.
