Jimmy's Famous Seafood held their annual golf tournament this week which hosted WWE Superstars Jimmy and Jey Uso as well as MLW's Lance Anoa'i.
While at the event, the wrestlers joined forces with "Team Famous" to present The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society with a $5 thousand donation. The money was presented on behalf of Roman Reigns and the entire Anoa'i family.

Back in October, Reigns announced live on Monday Night RAW that he had been living with leukemia for 11 years and that it had returned. At that point in time, he was forced to relinquish the WWE Universal Championship. After a four-month absence, Roman returned to TV with the news that he was in remission.
Roman remains an active personality within the Make A Wish community and his revelation has been a catalyst for others to step up and make a positive difference. This past November, for example, the Staples Center made a donation of $10,000 to a charity of his choosing.
