Delta Downs prepares annual 'Trees of Hope' display

4 December 2017

(PRESS RELEASE) -- A popular holiday tradition is set to return to Delta Downs Racetrack Casino & Hotel, as the Vinton, Louisiana property hosts the 10th Annual "Trees of Hope" display.

Each year, nonprofit organizations from across southwest Louisiana and southeast Texas are invited to decorate 12-foot trees displayed in the Promenade at Delta Downs. Members of the public have the opportunity to visit the display and vote for their favorite charity. Delta Downs will award a total of $10,000 in cash to all participants, including a first-place prize of $5,000.

"While it's always great to help out many worthwhile charities in our community, Trees of Hope provides something else as well: A beautiful display that the entire community can enjoy," said Steve Kuypers, Vice President and General Manager of Delta Downs. "Trees of Hope has quickly become a tradition here at Delta Downs. Thousands of people come through our doors each December, looking forward to seeing displays that grow more creative and festive each year."

This year, the trees will be on display now through 27 December. The public is invited to view the trees and vote for their favorite from now until 14 December, and then to join Delta Downs for the annual awards ceremony in the Delta Downs Promenade at 7 p.m. on 15 December.

Participants in this year's contest are: Buckaroo Wishes; Colors for a Cause - Louisiana; DeQuincy Memorial Hospital/Auxiliary - Pink Ladies; Dreams Come True of Louisiana; International Rett Syndrome Foundation; Orange County Special Angels Rodeo; St. Nicholas Center for Children; Sulphur FFA; The Literacy Council of Southwest Louisiana; and The Women's Commission of Southwest Louisiana.
