I always enjoy a trip to the casino, even when I don't win big. And in Oklahoma/North Texas, we have several great casinos to choose from! But during the holidays, as Jeri Christmas, I like using my extra cash to donate to a good cause. Luckily, Kiowa Casino and Hotel in Devol, Oklahoma, is hosting its annual Cash for Toys Drive this year!

Starting Monday, December 5, guests can donate $10 or more in cash in exchange for freeplay rewards through Friday, December 9. And from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. during the promotion, participating guests will receive a scratch off ticket for a chance to win freeplay ranging from $12-$200! Proceeds will go towards local organizations in Oklahoma and North Texas that help provide Christmas gifts for families, including Sheppard Air Force Base Children's Programs, Salvation Army of Wichita Falls, Grandfield Fire and EMS, Kiowa Tribe, Wichita Falls Fire Department, Burkburnett Fire Department, and other local child advocates, charities and churches.

“We know the holidays can be hard on our local families,” Callie Singh, Director of Marketing, said in a press release. “It’s such a blessing to be able to not only put a smile on a child’s face, but to lift a burden from parents with such a simple act of kindness.”

Through its annual toy drive, Kiowa Casino and Hotel has distributed over 30,000 toys for families in need!

“The impact of Kiowa in the Community would be nothing without our guests,” Singh said in a press release. “We’re excited to see what good we can do together again this year.”

Cash gifts will be accepted in lieu of physical toys and are nonrefundable. Guests must be 21 years of age or older to participate. For more information and for complete rules, please call 1-866-370-4077 or visit kiowacasino.com.
