Imagine Dragons to Host Seventh Annual Rise Up Gala

Tyler Robinson Foundation (TRF), the nonprofit organization of the GRAMMY Award-winning band Imagine Dragons dedicated to supporting children battling pediatric cancer, will hold its seventh annual Rise Up Gala Friday, Oct. 22, 2021 at Wynn Las Vegas’ Outdoor Pavilion.

The one-night-only experience will feature an exclusive acoustic performance by Imagine Dragons, with actor and comedian Joel McHale once again serving as host.

The Rise Up Gala offers attendees an exhilarating night of entertainment while celebrating the individuals who have made notable contributions to TRF through direct efforts, philanthropic support, or by raising public awareness about the challenges facing families battling a childhood cancer diagnosis.

Overlooking the Wynn Las Vegas golf course and the historic Las Vegas Country Club, the beautiful outdoor venue will provide a stunning backdrop for this star-studded event while maximizing the safety of guests. Following the highly successful 2019 event, which raised more than $3.2 million, the seventh annual Rise Up Gala promises to be an extraordinary evening of inspiration and hope as TRF also honors the children whom the organization’s mission is built around. 

TRF has also announced some of its honorees being recognized for their efforts to support its mission. Honorees include TRF Youth Ambassador Brianna Paul, TRF Legacy Award Honoree Heather Kahlert of The Kahlert Foundation and TRF Community Impact Honoree, Intermountain Healthcare.

A limited number of individual tickets and corporate sponsorships are available for the 2021 event. The evening includes a cocktail hour, dinner, live and silent auctions as well as all-star entertainment. All proceeds raised benefit TRF, with 85% of every dollar raised going directly to support families in need.
