"As one of Louisiana's largest and most established gaming companies, it is Boyd Gaming's privilege and honor to give back to the people of this state during their time of need," said Keith Smith, President and Chief Executive Officer of Boyd Gaming. "We invite our customers and business partners to join us in supporting the extraordinary efforts of the American Red Cross, as they work tirelessly to help our Louisiana neighbors recover and rebuild."

"When disaster strikes, we pull together as a community," said U.S. House Majority Whip Steve Scalise, R-La. "As our state recovers from the devastating flooding, it is in no small part due to the efforts of neighbors stepping up and helping neighbors. I applaud the leadership of Boyd Gaming for contributing to the recovery effort and showcasing Louisiana's strong sense of community."
