Tropicana Evansville gives out its first check post rebranding

Posted: Updated:

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.
