Triumphant Event Aimed at Transforming Lives

Hundreds of community members helped the Triumph Foundation exceed its fundraising goals at the 7th annual Let'em Roll Casino Night last month. The organization raised more than $100,000 which will go towards improving the lives of people suffering from spinal cord injuries.

More than 350 people turned out to participate in 'casino night' which included a Texas Hold'em Poker Tournament, craps, blackjack and roulette along with dinner, music, dancing and a silent auction. Greene Broillet & Wheeler, LLP was a Premier Sponsor of the event held on Saturday July 30, 2016 in Valencia, CA.

"The mission of The Triumph Foundation works hand in hand with what our firm does for our clients, said GB&W partner, Scott Carr. "We share a common goal- to improve the quality of life for injury victims, by helping them find a sense of purpose, hope and joy," said Carr.

Triumph Foundation, is a 501(c) nonprofit organization that assists victims with spinal cord injuries by providing grants to pay for medical care, assisting with home modifications, along with organizing support groups and recreational programs for the disabled.

The organization's founder, Andrew Skinner suffered a severe spinal cord injury in a 2004 snowboarding accident in Lake Arrowhead and was rendered quadriplegic. Andrew underwent extensive rehabilitation and regained significant function. Andrew and his wife, Kristen Skinner have since dedicated their lives to providing resources and mentorship programs to people suffering from paralysis.

"The event was a tremendous success and gets better every year," said Andrew Skinner.

"We're so thankful to have such loyal supporters," said Skinner.

Several GB&W attorneys attended the gala including Scott Carr, Geoff Wells and Aaron Osten.
