Tim Leads Win-Win’s First Minnesota Chapter by Helping Those Affected by Sarcoma
On Jan. 29, 2017, Tim had the pleasure of partnering with the Rein in Sarcoma Foundation and Win-Win Entertainment for the first time to encourage and uplift those who have been affected by the cancer sarcoma.
Win-Win Entertainment provides opportunities for entertainers to give to those who are influenced by misfortune and it is working with Tim to expand the organization by starting a new chapter in Minnesota.
“I have experienced first-hand the work that Win-Win Entertainment does in Las Vegas, having volunteered with Miracle League and entertained at the John Bailey Memorial Golf Tournament that raises scholarship money for children of slain FBI agents,” said Tim Gabrielson, “I’m so excited to be leading the charge here to bring Win-Win Entertainment to our community in Minneapolis.”
With support from the founder of Win-Win Entertainment, Jeff Civillico, Tim lead the new Minnesota chapter by holding its first event by helping the Rein in Sarcoma Foundation, which is headquartered in Shoreview, Minnesota.
The program was started with guest speakers who survived different variations of the cancer. They helped answer questions and encourage patients who might be going through similar situations that they went through themselves. After the encouraging words from the guest speakers, Tim had the privilege of contributing his services to help motivate and bring laughter to the crowd.
He was able to perform his inspirational blend of comedy and magic for sarcoma patients, survivors, and their loved ones. After the show, Tim also took time to visit the hospital, where he performed for a small group and visited children at their bedsides to help bring happiness and comfort to those who were not able to attend the fundraiser/awareness event.
“It feels good to do good,” said Tim.
The weekend turned into a great performance where Tim gave back to the community, especially to those who are going through the hardships of sarcoma.
“Throughout his presentation Gabrielson encouraged us to smile more often and be warm and engaging to others to make the world a better place. He had a compelling message that if we choose to have a positive outlook we are likely to be happier,” said Rein in Sarcoma Volunteer Coordinator Connie Dow, “Thanks for all you do, Tim, and for leading the charge to bring Win-Win Entertainment to Minneapolis!”
The Rein in Sarcoma Foundation is an organization for people who are impacted by sarcoma, a cancer typically found in the soft tissues. This organization helps fund and support research, host activities for educational purposes, and provides encouragement to those who are influenced by sarcoma.
