Golden Palace Casino Secures FleetCenter Naming Rights
BOSTON, MA - Delaware North Companies, owner and operator of Boston's FleetCenter, announced today that they have reached agreement with Golden Palace Casino on a single-day naming rights deal to re-name the world-class sports and entertainment arena the "GoldenPalace.comCenter." All net proceeds from Golden Palace Casino's winning bid of $35,099 via online auction site eBay will benefit Boston area charities. The deal will both go into effect and expire on Wednesday, February 16, 2005.
"We have begun our search to replace our previous naming rights affiliation with Fleet and are confident that we will find the right long-term marketing and community partner in the near future," said GoldenPalace.comCenter President & CEO Richard A. Krezwick. "However, in the meantime, we're pleased to offer this tremendous branding opportunity to Golden Palace Casino. We look forward to building a strong partnership with them through the end of the day Wednesday."
Golden Palace Casino's winning bid was one of 322 bids placed on the first six available naming rights opportunities that closed on Tuesday morning. The first six days grossed a total of $51,938.34, with all net proceeds to FleetCenter Neighborhood Charities, the arena's 501(c)(3) non-profit private foundation that benefits outreach initiatives focused on children and families in the Greater Boston area. The remaining February dates are still available for bid via www.FleetCenter.com and www.eBay.com and set to close this Thursday. Given the overwhelming initial response, a few additional dates in March are expected to be added later this week.
The purchase follows a succession of the online casino's charitable contributions. "We are very excited to be the first company to win this opportunity. We have always done our best to contribute to the community and this renaming is an excellent way to help local Boston charities, as well as a unique advertising medium", said Golden Palace CEO Richard Rowe.
As part of the single-day naming rights agreement, Golden Palace Casino will receive:
