Triumph Foundation is hosting its 6th annual Let’em Roll Casino Night at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Valencia on Saturday, July 18. All proceeds will benefit Triumph Foundation, a 501c3 nonprofit organization that works to minimize the obstacles one faces after suffering a spinal cord injury. The fundraising event will feature: Texas Hold’em Poker Tournament, Craps, Blackjack and Roulette. It also includes prime rib dinner, music, dancing, and silent auction.
The proceeds will help to replace items lost during a fire in Triumph’s storage unit in Canyon Country that took place June 25. The contents of the unit were completely destroyed, including over 50 care packages for newly injured spinal cord injury patients, resources, medical equipment, and many silent auction items meant for the Let’em Roll Casino Night.
“The cornerstone of our foundation was taken from us,” Andrew Skinner, executive director and founder of Triumph, said of the loss from the fire. “But I’m sure we’ll triumph. All those items are replaceable. It just costs money.”
The fundraiser is open to the public and tickets can be purchased at http://SupportTriumph.org, or checks can be made to Triumph Foundation and mailed to 17186 Hickory Ridge Ct., Santa Clarita CA 91387. All donations are tax deductible.
The event is made possible through its generous sponsors that include Coloplast, Greene Broillet & Wheeler, Owen Patterson Owen, Experea Healthcare, Metz & Harrison LLP, Chudacoff Simon Cherin Friedman LLP, Ability Center, and SCI Lawyers.
Needless to say, this is not a typical gala type event. This fundraiser means more to this nonprofit than ever before. Its impact will transform lives.
