Severely wounded U.S. Army Sergeant Justin Feagin, a Dallas native, was awarded 16 medals & commendations-including the Purple Heart-while leading an Afghan Border Police Unit that was ambushed in 2010.
Area citizens are coming together in an Open House & Block Party in a benefit for Justin on Saturday, September 10, from 10am-2pm, at 301 S. Watters Rd in Allen at the offices of RE/MAX Town & Country. The date 9/10/11 coincides with the 10th anniversary of the World Trade Center disaster in New York which ignited the War on Terrorism.
“This is going to be a phenomenal community event, with live onsite broadcasts by the personalities from Mix 102.9, military displays, fun/food/beverages, the giant, 7-story RE/MAX hot air balloon, and a police mobile command unit. Kids can enjoy face painting, a bounce house, dunking booth, and an art contest,” said Michael Coburn, event host.
All proceeds benefit the Texas Sentinels Foundation (www.texassentinels.org), a Texas non-profit that builds and donates debt-free houses and other support services to severely injured military personnel who served in post-9/11 conflict overseas.
The Collin County Association of Realtors Sentinels Team adopted Justin & his family, and along with their partners Hillwood Development & Highland Homes and numerous local supporters, are helping his family build a new life following Justin’s sacrifice on a foreign battlefield.
“We’re very honored to be hosting this fundraiser to help Justin and his family begin their post-military life,” said RE/MAX Town & Country Co-Owner Debra Coburn. “Some great partners are working with us to make this happen, and we still have great sponsorship opportunities available for those who can contribute.”
