"Tasha Latimer, Brandon Rowe, Art Duran, Lenna Lamas-Fernandez, Cindy Wiley and Dany Sloan support Snowball Express! Happy Holidays all"
"A Trident supporter"
"Thank you for everything you do."
"Thanks to all that serve and have served in our US Armed Services."
"Here's to a day filled with joy and delight!"
The bond that Trident has with the military is strong and unwavering. The University has well over 22,000 military-affiliated alumni, and students who are active duty, veteran, dependents, or part of the National Guard make up 79% of the school's currently enrolled population. And we can't forget the veterans on Trident's staff and faculty who enrich the student experience on a daily basis.
From the classroom to career development to charity work we have forged a strong relationship with our military brothers and sisters, so this summer season we will continue that trend by supporting Snowball Express. This worthy organization serves the children of fallen military members, a group whose sacrifice can not be understated. Through donations and volunteer work, Snowball Express has been bringing hope and support to children of men and women who have died while on active duty since 09/11.
Trident is sponsoring a "Snowflake Family Adventure" at Universal Studios – Hollywood for approximately 70 children and their surviving parent, or a grandparent. All expenses for this event are covered for the participating families. This is where you can help. As you can imagine, an undertaking such as this will have a lot of effort and a large financial commitment. We invite you to partner with us to make this event a reality.
In order to sponsor this event, we are seeking to raise $20K to ensure no family has to come out of pocket for any portion of their participation. We will hold a series of fundraisers to generate funds, such as a silent auction, raffles, a cook out, a "Pennies from Heaven" campaign, among other events. We are soliciting:
Will you support this effort? Please know that Trident University International, the Snowball organization and the participating children and families are deeply grateful for your contribution to this effort.
Thank you for helping us create an event in which children can find a reason to smile and create new, happy memories that will last a lifetime.
