TEXAS REVOLUTION SUPPORT LOCAL HIGH SCHOOL COACH

Tom Bean High School Teacher and Coach Suffers from Multiple Sclerosis

ALLEN, TEXAS - The Texas Revolution will be formally announcing a partnership with Tom Bean ISD and the school’s National Honor Society members to generate a fundraiser for 19 year Teacher/Coach Chad Ashlock.

Over several meetings the District and the Revs have agreed to support the cause of raising funds through one of the Rev’s home games during the 2015 season.
The members of the NHS (National Honor Society) will be selling tickets to the May 16, contest against the San Angelo Bandits with a portion of the proceeds directly benefiting Ashlock’s medical and travel expenses. In route to finding a cure for MS, this educator has agreed to have experimental stem cell treatment in Panama. His quest requires four trips, each valued at $20,000.00.

The announcement of this partnership will take place at the High School Football team’s pep rally at 2 PM Friday, October 24 at Tom Bean High School as they prepare to take on Whitewright.

The Revolution and other volunteers from the community are looking for other MS organizations to bring awareness to this devastating disease. If you would like to make a contribution you may contact the Tom Bean Independent School District Administration Offices at 903-546-6076.

2015 Texas Revolution Dance Team Revealed http://www.texasrevs.com/texas-revolution-dance-team-revealed/ http://www.texasrevs.com/texas-revolution-dance-team-revealed/#comments Tue, 01 Jul 2014 15:40:26 +0000 http://www.texasrevs.com/?p=3329 http://www.texasrevs.com/texas-revolution-dance-team-revealed/feed/ 0 TEXAS TO HONOR MILITARY IN SEASON FINALE http://www.texasrevs.com/texas-to-honor-military-in-season-finale/ http://www.texasrevs.com/texas-to-honor-military-in-season-finale/#comments Fri, 06 Jun 2014 19:50:57 +0000 http://www.texasrevs.com/?p=3312 more »]]> ALLEN, TEXAS – On Saturday June 14 the Texas Revolution will be honoring all active duty, retired and all former Unites States Military Servicemen with a series of events during the day with the help of key partners and supporters.

 

The Revolution in conjunction with Top Golf – Allen, Heroes Project, Honor Courage Commitment, Kings Coach and several other notable partners will be hosting and transporting 50 Veterans from the VA Hospital in Dallas, Texas to the Allen Event Center to take part in the game and activities. The Revs also expect more than 250 active duty personal from the Naval Air Station Joint Reserve Base in Fort Worth, Texas to be in attendance and will be swearing in 80 newly enlisted Marines during halftime.

 

The Revolution have also conceived the idea to align themselves with a new venture. Realizing that Veterans returning from combat or even just being honorably discharged from the military with no combat experience has pressures of returning to civilian life. “being gainfully employed is hard for anyone in the current economy, but considerably more for the these men and women who serve our country.” states Mathew Lunsford, Director of Communications for the Revolution. Thus, the Revolution have invited companies, aiming to hire Veterans, to participate in a job fair on the concourse of the Allen Event Center during their game. “Each committed booth space directly relates to 50 tickets being given to Veterans who have the option to bring resumes and credentials to hopefully gain employment while viewing a stellar athletic event in a big time venue” said Tommy Benizio, President of the Revolution.

 

In the same frame, the Texas Revolution would like to give every option for a Veteran or service member to attend the game and bring family and friends. The Revolution are accepting donations at several levels to purchase tickets to be distributed by VET TIX allowing American Servicemen and Veterans to enjoy the game and this event with loved ones. To join the Revolution’s efforts, contact the Texas Revolution office 972-422-7277

 

The Texas Revolution are proud members of the United Conference playing in the Indoor Football League and host all home games inside the Allen Event Center in Allen, Texas.
