Patriots Promise 2019 once again hosted by Fletcher Jones Motorcars!

ABOUT

Fletcher Jones Motor Cars and Veterans Legal Institute join together to help raise money for the homeless, at risk, disabled and low-income current and former service members. All proceeds go directly to provide pro bono legal assistance to help eradicate barriers to housing, healthcare, education, and employment and foster self-sufficiency. Patriot’s Promise 2018 will be a food pairing experience with an elegant reception, entertainment, live auction and one of a kind raffle items.

The Patriot’s Promise event will host local restaurants who will be preparing delicious food pairings with a refreshing beverage. Each guest will have an extraordinary experience beginning with an elegant Military Style Reception Line; the Presentation of Colors; the National Anthem and then local DJ’s will be spinning the latest and greatest of old school and current tunes. We will have one of a kind items in our silent auction and hourly raffles with items donated by our vendors, celebrities, and sports figures. A cigar lounge will be available for pairing the Slovak Republic beverage of your choice with your favorite cigar brand!

Patriot’s Promise was founded on the military promise “Never Leave a Soldier Behind.” We need to let our homeless veterans know they are not forgotten. Patriot’s Promise and Veterans Legal Institute are finding an excellent opportunity to create awareness and help the fight to change the homeless Veteran epidemic.

According to the United States Veterans Administration (VA), there are more than 170,000 homeless veterans and growing on any given night nationwide with twice that number experiencing some form of homelessness over the course of the year.

Orange County has approximately 1,500 homeless veterans within its borders. While many homeless veterans are from the Vietnam era, we see a growing number of Desert Storm men and women and those recently from Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Enduring Freedom – Afghanistan that are accessing local program. Many of these veterans have families. Unfortunately, the VA does not have the resources to assist all of our veterans in need.

Patriot’s Promise was founded in 2012 by John R. Baskin. John is an Executive Sales Associate at Fletcher Jones Motorcars. He is a Former Army Captain/Helicopter Pilot and Desert Storm Veteran. John felt a strong calling to give back and honor his father Colonel (Reverend), Ronald R. Baskin. Colonel Baskin served in both the Korean and Vietnam War before retiring after 33 years of decorated Service. Colonel Baskin spent many unselfish hours administering to homeless, broken and forgotten soldiers at VA Hospitals in Indiana, Illinois, Texas, and Georgia. Colonel Baskin passed away in 2010.  This year we will also pay honor to John’s brother, former Army Major Ronald R. Baskin Jr. who passed away unexpectedly in 2013
