BILOXI, MS (AP) -

Treasure Bay Casino is teaming up with The Back Bay Mission to host the Because We Can slot tournament, and participants can win a share of up to $20,000.

The tournament kicked off on Friday and will last through Sunday. Players are asked to bring in non-perishable food items. In return, they will receive a point bonus added to their final score.

The casino expects more than 300 players to attend and to collect more than 1,000 cans.

Prizes will be awarded to the top ten players.

Treasure Bay has been holding food drives for many years, but this is the first time it's been tied to a promotion.

All donations will be presented to The Back Bay Mission.
