About the Event

The USC Edward R. Roybal Institute on Aging presented its Men's Health Awareness Day featuring the Imperials Car Club with honorary co-host Congresswoman Lucille Roybal-Allard.

The club partnered with the Roybal Institute to host a free health fair on the USC campus to raise awareness about men's health issues during Men's Health Month.

Imperials Car Club was founded in 1965 in the heart of East Los Angeles, California. The club represents the American, west coast traditional style of Lowriders and is considered by many to be the oldest and most respected Lowrider car club. Twenty of their cars were on display at USC including the famed "Gypsy Rose."
