King of Prussia, PA (November 26, 2018) – This holiday season, Valley Forge Casino Resort, a Boyd Gaming-owned unique entertainment destination, will host its inaugural ‘Trees of Hope’ tree-decorating competition.

From November 27th through December 17th, three local charities including, Alzheimer’s Association Delaware Valley Chapter, Orion Communities and To Love a Canine will embark on a friendly holiday competition where each will decorate its own six-foot tree in the Valley Forge Casino Resort lobby to raise awareness and support for their worthy causes.

Guests will have the opportunity to vote for their favorite tree through the kiosks on property, resulting in each charity receiving a generous donation. First place will receive $2,000, second place will receive $1,500 and third place will receive $1,000. Guests can vote once per day beginning November 27th through December 17th and must be Valley Forge Club Card Holders.

“We’re excited to host this charity tree decorating event for the first time as a new addition to the Boyd Gaming family, and are proud to continue supporting our community through fun, interactive experiences,” said Dave Zerfing, General Manager for Valley Forge Casino Resort.

A check presentation ceremony will take place at Center Bar Wednesday, December 19th at 5pm.
