Brent Coon & Associates raises over $25,000 for Lone Survivor Foundation

November 7, 2018 – The final tallies are in and Southeast Texas once again rose to the occasion. Attorney Brent Coon, Founder/CEO of Brent Coon and Associates law firm hosted the fifth annual Red White & Blue Golf Tournament on October 12, 2018 at Brentwood Entertainment Complex. The benefit raised over $25,000 for the Lone Survivor Foundation, an organization that “restores, empowers, and renews hope for our wounded service members and their families through health, wellness and therapeutic support” according to Lone Survivor Foundation’s mission statement. The Crystal Beach facility is one of 14 Lone Survivor treatment facilities across the Nation that provides support to service members and their families.

Dozens of Southeast Texas businesses supported the tournament through monetary sponsorships and donations.  Approximately 120 golfers participated in the tournament, including active duty military and veterans. Spike Garcia, Director of Donor Relations for the Lone Survivor Foundation emphasized how honored he was to see so many volunteers and members of the community give of their time and resources to such a cause.

“The Lone Survivor Foundation  is grateful to Brent Coon & Associates for their continued support of LSF and its mission,” stated Mr. Garcia.

Mr. Coon has made it a priority to support veterans through fundraising initiatives over the years, such as the Red White & Blue Golf Classic. “Our firm works year round to make this fundraiser an enjoyable and successful event. Nothing is more important than helping our military veterans with therapy and counseling when they come back from service to our country, particularly in times of war. Special thanks goes to our sponsors and our Red, White & Blue golf committee, which includes Brenda Jenkins and Damon Garcia, Brent Coon & Associates; Bruce Reyes, Construction Managers of Southeast Texas & SETX Drywall; Richard Guseman, Guseman Enterprises; Patti Hulett, Gulf Coast Insurance; Dan Travis, Travis Brothers Building Automation; Josh Tubbs, Coca Cola; Darren Lehrmann, KFDM; Bridget Miller, Free FM 105.3; Jason Choate, Memorial Diagnostics; Sergeant Pat Barton and Stephanie Romero.”

Each year Mr. Coon discovers new ways he and his staff at Brent Coon & Associates can support veterans through benefits and fundraisers. He opened his doors to the Brentwood Entertainment Complex for a second time that weekend on October 13, 2018, in order to raise more money for the Lone Survivor Foundation through a Poker Tournament. “This inaugural event raised an additional $3,000 for the Lone Survivor Foundation. Special thanks goes to Richard Guseman of Guseman Enterprises for organizing our first annual Red, White & Blue Poker Tournament” stated Mr. Coon.

The first annual Red White & Blue Poker Tournament kicked off at 1:00 p.m. and wrapped up at approximately 7:00 p.m. Mr. Coon plans to expand the poker tournament next year in order to raise more money for the Lone Survivor Foundation.

A silent auction was held at the Red White & Blue Golf Classic as well as the Poker Tournament. The silent auction items alone raised over $2,000 in addition to sponsorships and door prizes.

Mr. Coon and his staff at Brent Coon & Associates will continue to support  veterans through initiatives such as these.
