Trident University International (Trident) will again be supporting Snowball Express with “Snowflake Family Adventure” at Universal Studios Hollywood in Universal City, CA on August 10th, starting at 7 am.
Since 2006 Snowball Express has lent a helping hand to children who have lost parents in the service. Their mission is to enrich lives by creating new, happy memories during a four-day weekend that’s filled with fun activities like sporting events, dances, an amusement park, and much more.
“Snowflake Family Adventure” will be a daylong event for approximately 70 children and their surviving parent or family member. Several members of Trident’s faculty and staff will serve as volunteers for the day. Additionally, Trident has been conducting a number of fundraising initiatives to support this event.
The University is seeking to raise $20,000 to ensure no participating family has to pay out of pocket for this worthwhile event. Learn about how you can help here: http://bit.ly/29kfTPd
Trident has received support and donations from local organizations such as Hybrid Apparel, FYT Gym, Ganahl Lumber, El Torito, Blake’s Place, Maderas Steak & Ribs, Olive Garden, Gourmet Pie & Café, Cassidy Nails and Spa, and Luxor Medical Spa.
