Treasure Island, St. Paul Saints Partner on Charitable Giving Program

Treasure Island Saints

WELCH, MN – For the second consecutive season, Treasure Island Resort & Casino and the St. Paul Saints are partnering to give back to local youth development non-profit organizations through the “Goin’ Yard for Youth” community program. Entering its ninth season as Founding Partner of CHS Field and the title sponsor of the Treasure Island Terrace and the Treasure Island Berm, Treasure Island is the exclusive casino partner of the Saints. 

In 2016, Treasure Island added a ship down the right field line at CHS Field, and a tradition was born. Each time a Saints player hit a home run, the cannons from the ship went off. That practice will continue this year, and to take it a step further, Treasure Island and the Saints will donate a total of $500 for every home run hit by a Saints player at CHS Field during the 2023 regular season to a local non-profit organization in support of youth and education. Proceeds from the program will go to a different 501©(3) certified organization each month including: D.A.R.E. (Drug Abuse Resistance Education), April 4-May 4; Special Olympics Minnesota, May 5-28; MATTER, June 6-July16; ACES (Athletes Committed to Educating Students), July 25-August 17; and American Indian Family and Children’s Services, August 18-September 24.

With a total of 88 home runs hit by Saints players at CHS Field last season, $44,000 was donated to local youth enrichment organizations through the Goin’ Yard for Youth program. 

Treasure Island Resort & Casino continues to be a strong community partner by generously supporting designated 501©(3) charitable organizations. Since 1994, the Prairie Island Indian Community, which owns and operates Treasure Island Resort & Casino, has donated over $25 million to many non-profit and community organizations.
