The BCA team selected children’s Christmas wish list tags from the tree and donated toys, gifts and clothing the kids requested for Christmas this year.
This is the fourth consecutive year Brent Coon and Associates has participated in the Giving Tree program.

Quick update on our 2nd annual Lone Survivor Foundation military veterans golf fundraiser held last Friday, October 2, 2015. This year, we had 40 teams participate and over 50 sponsors, donating over $100,000 in potential prizes. The event netted over $35,000, more than doubling last year and breaking our target of $25,000.
The Lone Survivor Foundation helps military veterans with physical or mental health issues adjust to civilian life. Their retreat was built at Crystal Beach last year and brings veterans and their families in for individual and group counseling. Post- Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) affects many returning Veterans, who commit suicide at a rate of 22 per day, more than three times the national average. The Lone Survivor Foundation was established by local hero Marcus Luttrell, a Navy Seal caught in an ambush in Afghanistan which killed all of his team and all the members of a rescue helicopter. A movie by the same title starring Mark Wahlberg publicized the tragic incident. Read more about the event.
Brent Coon and Associates Holiday Toy and Food Drive
The Holiday Season is a time for giving. BCA has made Buckner’s Toy Drive and the Beaumont Jaycees Christmas Shopping Tour (for underprivileged and special needs children) our target charities this year.
Our Angel Tree will be located in the lobby decorated with tags and the names of children with a wish list item. As always, the toy should be placed under the tree in Brent’s section unwrapped with the original Buckner tag containing the child’s name no later than Wednesday, December 18. - Read More

Once again, the BCA team gathered one of the largest groups for the Julie Rogers "Gift of Life" 5K Color Rush Run in Beaumont. On October 5th, the BCA team and over 6,000 other runners ran through the streets of downtown Beaumont to help raise money for breast cancer awareness.
The Julie Rogers Gift of Life Program has funded more than 20,000 free mammograms and 7,000 free prostate cancer screenings, and has conducted 1,000 educational outreach encounters, reaching more than 120,000 individuals in Southeast Texas.
Most importantly, the program has helped extend the lives of more than 200 individuals who have been diagnosed with breast or prostate cancer, and provided access to treatment through its efforts.
