Evansville, IN – December 10, 2018

Since 1996, Tropicana Evansville has celebrated the spirit of the holiday season by hosting charity slot and blackjack tournaments in the month of December. These tournaments are unique in that players’ entry fees are either a new toy valued at $10 or more, or $10 or more in cash. The generosity of Tropicana Evansville’s players is exhibited through the many toys collected and money donated. This year’s tournaments were held Monday, December 3 through Thursday, December 6.

All proceeds benefit two area organizations, Salvation Army’s Toy Town and Santa Clothes Club. Tropicana Evansville has a 22-year history with both organizations and has donated more than 23,155 toys ($231,550 value) and $44,140 to assist them in their efforts over the years.
Please join Tropicana Evansville’s Sponsorship & Donations Coordinator, Amanda Schisler; Salvation Army Majors Mark and Sandra Turner; and Santa Clothes Club Vice President Wendell Burkhart and Board Member Pattie Davis for the announcement of this year’s tournament results on Thursday, December 13, 2018 at 2:00PM (CT) in the Tropicana Evansville Hotel Lobby.
This year, 1,256 toy donations ($12,560 value), was raised for Salvation Army Toy Town and will be distributed to needy families during the holiday season. Also, $1,860 in cash donations will go to Santa Clothes Club to provide new clothing for needy grade school children whose names are obtained through area school programs.
