Johnny Wilson Support Team – DFW Area
It was on a cold December morning that Johnny Wilson and his family learned they would be receiving a new home from the Texas Sentinel Foundation, an effort that would be led by Kristina Hayes, Broker/Owner of RE/MAX Masters in Southlake. As leader, Kristina organized a team of supporters that ultimately made the promised Arlington home a reality for the Wilson family. Builder Mike McKellop of Sierra Fine Custom Homes came on board as the home’s designer and builder and organizer of suppliers and contractors. Kristina also solicited the aid of Julianna Hagar of popular Fort Worth radio station WBAP, who helped promote Johnny Wilson’s story and solicit donations to the effort, as well as Scott Rathbun of Video General.The DFW area community rallied around the Sentinels Team, and several large scale fundraising events made a great difference in the length of the project. RE/MAX DFW Associates adopted Texas Sentinels Foundation and Johnny Wilson as a preferred charity in 2010, and hosted three separate events benefitting Johnny: A Heroes 5K Run, Charity Golf Tournament and Bowling Challenge which raised considerable sums for the project. Hayes also spearheaded a charity poker tournament in Southlake, which brought in donations from many community members.WBAP promoted the project on air throughout 2010 and took donations from listeners through their website. Johnny’s House was completed in early 2011, 14 months after the live on air announcement from WBAP’s Hal Jay.
