July 17, 2019 – Cypress, CA – Trident University International (Trident) is happy to announce that for the fourth consecutive year, it will be hosting a Gary Sinise Foundation’s Snowball Express event, which will be held on Saturday, July 20 at Six Flags Magic Mountain in Valencia, CA.
Since 2006, Snowball Express has provided hope and new happy memories to the children of military fallen heroes who have died while on active duty since 9/11. In 2017, Snowball Express became an official Gary Sinise Foundation program. Further, the event connects the children and surviving spouses of the fallen with others going through the same experience.
Over the past three years, Trident’s Snowball Family Adventure has served hundreds of guests from military families and has been championed by the local community. Additional support has come from officeholders at the federal, state, and municipal levels. With over 75% of its students and alumni network in the military or military-affiliated, Trident remains a strong supporter of military and veterans causes.
“Snowball Family Adventure is always an exciting time because it allows us to meet members of the Snowball family and give back to the military community,” stated Travis Allen, President and CEO of Trident. “These families have made great sacrifices for our country, and we are honored to support them through events like this.”
In addition to Snowball Express, Trident has partnered with other local and national military and veterans organizations over the course of its 21-year history. In January, Trident was named the 2018 BRACE Business of the Year by the City of Cypress, CA for its philanthropic work within the community.
Complimentary tickets are available for military families on a first-come, first-served basis. For information, visit: https://donate.garysinisefoundation.org/TridentUniversity2019.
