The drawing for the four Rangers tickets and $150 Mastercard to benefit the Wounded Warriors project was held Friday, July 15, 2011 at Texas National Bank. Raffle tickets were sold to raise money for the Wounded Warriors Alliance. Funds from the ticket sales will send a wounded soldier to Eagles Summit Ranch in Junction, TX for both training and tools needed to turn tragedy into triumph. Drawing the winner was Jim Kelley, Chief of Police. The winner of the prize package was Ron Johnston. Ron very generously donated the tickets and Mastercard to the family of local Wounded Warrior Cpl. Darrell Campbell of Snyder.
Eagle Summit Ranch is currently under construction with the goal of opening in September 2011 and will accommodate warriors from the southern region of the nation, including Brooke Army Medical Center and the Center for the Intrepid. The Roever Learning and Resource Center program at the ranch is dedicated to rebuilding self-esteem, confidence, financial freedom and family relationships. It also provides mentoring, educational opportunities and participation in public speaking forums at Eagles Summit Ranch.
