Riverwalk Casino Hotel Kicks Off 2nd Annual “Season of Giving Donation Event” to Support Local Community

VICKSBURG, MS., (September 25, 2023– It’s the most wonderful time of year to support the greater Vicksburg community thanks to Riverwalk Casino Hotel’s (“Riverwalk”) 2nd Annual Season of Giving Donation Event. Last year’s inaugural event was a huge success and included turkey donations to local first responder groups and much-needed monetary donations to 13 different charitable organizations. Altogether, Riverwalk donated over $72,000 in cash and turkeys during the 2022 holiday season. 

This year, Riverwalk is excited to spread more cheer with an even bigger Season of Giving Donation Event. The festivities begin with a special Emergency Response Thanksgiving dinner/lunch on Thursday, November 9th. The joy will continue Tuesday, December 5th when Riverwalk makes monetary donations to numerous, well-deserving local charity organizations. Local 501(c)(3) groups interested in receiving funds through the Season of Giving campaign can contact [email protected] to receive a grant application. Applications must be received by Riverwalk no later than 10/31/23. 

The Season of Giving Donation Event wouldn’t be possible without the generosity of Riverwalk’s guests. Throughout the year, guests raised funds by contributing their TITO tickets to the donation box located in the hotel lobby. Additional contributions were made via the ongoing Sharing is Caring promotion, where guests can make a $5 donation in exchange for $10 BonusPLAY. 

“Last year’s event made the holidays much happier for so many fantastic organizations throughout our wonderful community,” said Brock VanWye, Riverwalk’s Senior Director of Marketing and Hotel. “We’re thrilled to make things merrier once again with the 2nd Annual Season of Giving Donation Event. A special thanks to all our guests for their incredible generosity over the past year. Their contributions will go a long way to giving many of those in the greater Vicksburg area a brighter holiday season—and a brighter future.”
