America’s Auctioneer Myers Jackson and USVET.fund are joining an upcoming auction benefiting wounded veterans. He will be coming alongside C. Ivan Stoltzfus of Across America for Wounded Heroes. As well at the organization Operation Second Chance.
First of all, the three charities converge on Tuesday, March 6 from 5-7pm. Each of the three organizations include members with hearts of compassion and gratitude for our country’s veterans. The venue for this epic auction is White Buffalo Saloon in Sarasota, FL. Come expecting an enthralling evening raising funds for military veterans wounded while serving our country. The auction is in the very capable hands of two auctioneers with a deep passion for helping veterans.
First is C. Ivan Stoltzfus. Auctioneer. Real estate broker. Retired farmer. He drives Johnabilt-his 1948 John Deere tractor- across the country starting from Honey Brook, PA. He travels city to city and many a back road. He meets all sorts of people along the way. The mission of Stoltzfus and Johnabilt? Raising awareness for veterans suffering with PTSD. According to his website, thus far Stoltzfus has raised $69,860.19. To learn more about Stoltzfus or Johnabilt, view a map of the route or to donate visit the website at http://helpamericanheroes.com.
Second is the man affectionately known as America’s Auctioneer Myers Jackson. Himself a Marine Veteran. This auctioneer of the DIY Network’s hit reality series Texas Flip and Move is so much more. He auctions coast to coast. He has auctioned a luxury home in Mississippi-where he took a dive in his best suit, hat and boots. He has a home with acreage south of Dallas and an Estate Auction in San Antonio. Another for a 300+ acre horse training facility in Williston, Florida. Myers Jackson is additionally a real estate broker. He is not finished yet. He is as well a phenomenal photographer who captures the pride within veterans in each of his photos. In addition he is one of four founders of USVET.fund. The organization helps veterans and their families in the following ways:
- AHA Fund-Auctioneers Helping Auctioneers
- Lunch Box-Buy Lunch for a Veteran
- proud supporters of Across America for Wounded Heroes. Of course more information about the cause and how you can volunteer or donate can be found at http://usvet.fund.
Third is Operation Second Chance which comes along side veterans and their family members. Upon learning some soldiers were in Walter Reed, Cindy McGrew met with their families offering her assistance. During their hospital stay and after release. Their goal is “to provide support for the Soldiers and Marines while they are here at WRNMMC and then to further assist them when they transition either back to duty or back to civilian life”. To learn more about Operation Second Chance and how you can help visit www.operationsecondchance.org. The mission statement is:
“We are patriotic citizens committed to serving our wounded, injured and ill combat veterans. We support Veterans and their families by building relationships and identifying and supporting immediate needs and interests. We are dedicated to promoting public awareness of the many sacrifices made by our Armed Forces.”
Operation Second Chance has provided more the 5.5 million dollars in assistance and morale related activities since inception.
