Boyd Gaming’s “Wreaths of Hope” Contest

By Darlene Terrill, Regional Director

This year, the Family Alliance for Veterans of America (FAVA) participated in Boyd Gaming’s Wreaths of Hope initiative, a holiday wreath decorating competition. This campaign aims to support non-profit organizations in a creative and fun way throughout the holiday season.

FAVA staff, Kerry Gunderson and Robin Jaquis, took the lead in creating the most beautiful wreath they could in line with the communal spirit of FAVA. It was then delivered to the Diamond Jo Worth Casino in Northwoods, Iowa to be put on display for in-person voting and daily online voting. When all was said and done, our wreath won second place and the program will receive a check for $1,500. Boyd Gaming will also donate additional paper goods to the program, and the wreath will be auctioned off with all proceeds coming back to FAVA.

Thank you to our amazing staff for making this beautiful wreath. We are so proud of your work!
