Tropicana Evansville handed out its first check under the new branding.
That check goes to the Boys and Girls Club of Evansville, and was raised through a monthly program where employees can pay $3 to wear jeans to work once a month.
Tropicana matches their contributions.
Employees raised $464, which gave the club a $928 check Wednesday.
Ward Shaw, General Manager at Tropicana says the idea came from an employee suggestion.
"Why not have some fun with it, do it every month, have a group of employees pick the twelve organizations that we will support each month. You know, everyone likes wearing jeans, changing it up a little bit for one day, having fun, and raising a little money for a good cause," says Shaw.
The Boys and Girls Club says the money will go toward funding summer programs, including a trip to Holiday World.
