‘Let’em Roll’ Fundraiser to Benefit Paralysis Community at the Universal Hilton on Saturday, July 28, 2018

Triumph Foundation celebrates milestones and looks to grow community support at annual fundraiser that supports its mission to serve those who have become paralyzed.

UNIVERSAL CITY, CALIF. – Triumph Foundation is hosting its 8th annual ‘Let’em Roll’ Fundraiser, returning to the Universal Hilton in Universal City, CA on Saturday, July 28, 2018 from 5:00pm-11:30pm. All proceeds will benefit Triumph Foundation, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that works to minimize the obstacles for children, adults, and Veterans that suffer from spinal cord injuries and other forms of paralysis. Guests will be treated to a prime rib dinner, dancing and silent auction, as well as $500 in chips to play games.

“For the last ten years, Triumph Foundation has partnered with people who become paralyzed to assist them with triumphing over the new challenges they face to restore their lives,” says Andrew Skinner, Triumph Foundation’s Founder who suffered a spinal cord injury in 2004. “One of the highlights of our year, the Let’em Roll Fundraiser brings the entire community together for a night of fun and to celebrate our accomplishments. We are proud to make quality of life a reality for people.”
