Our Heroes Support Networks
The Texas Sentinels Foundation program is dedicated to providing not only new homes, but a new life to the men and women who have selflessly given on behalf of their country. As a country and as united communities it is our responsibility to honor these American Heroes by providing for them once they return from war.
See below the extraordinary groups of men and women in communities all across Texas that are helping these True American Heroes of the Texas Sentinels Foundation realize thier families dreams and goals.
Jorge De Leon Support Team – San Antonio
The San Antonio Team, led by RE/MAX Preferred Realtor Patsy Oakley, stepped up to the plate in supporting our first Texas Sentinel Jorge De Leon, and they met each challenge with determination and a focus on the end result. Tilson Homes also stepped up as the builder of Jorge’s home and remained at the heart of the project, coordinating and recruiting suppliers and contractors to get the home built. The San Antonio Texas Sentinels Team worked hand in hand with Tilson Homes, organizing fundraisers and involvement in existing community events.Through the Team effort, Texas Sentinels was a beneficiary of prestigious annual charity events in San Antonio and statewide, including The RE/MAX San Antonio Golf Tournament, a special auction fundraiser at Billy Bob’s Texas in Forth Worth, and the San Antonio Monster Mash charity event which takes place every October. The team also organized several cocktail reception fundraisers at Klusoz Martini & Tapas Bar. Outside of formal event fundraisers, team members promoted their cause and solicited individual donations from across San Antonio, leveraging contacts to get the word out about the project and soliciting the community for support.The team and Tilson Homes saw their hard work bear fruit when Jorge De Leon and his family were formally awarded their completed custom home on December 3, 2010, just 14 months after the announcement that the De Leon family would receive the Texas Sentinel Foundation Life Scholarship.
