VAREP (Veterans Association of Real Estate Professionals) Announces it’s 2nd Annual Stars and Stripes Dinner Gala Veteran Charity Event.
The Veterans Association of Real Estate Professionals (VAREP) announces their 2nd Annual Stars and Stripes Dinner Gala Veteran Charity Event taking place on Friday, September 16, 2022 at The Lower Hangar (student union) Embry Riddle Aeronautical University.
The featured Keynote Speaker will be “The Real Forrest Gump”, Sammy L. Davis, Medal of Honor recipient. This is the event of the year! You will not want to miss this, as Sgt Sammy L. Davis will tell us how his experience in the Vietnam War inspired the fictional character of Forrest Gump. It will be a fantastic evening celebrating and
remembering all who served our country. All proceeds will benefit local veteran assistance programs and homeownership efforts in Arizona.
VAREP (Veterans Association of Real Estate Professionals) is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit and certified HUD counseling organization. Our mission is to improve the lives of servicemembers and veterans through education, housing, and philanthropy. VAREP, along with national and local partners, will bring financial workshops tailored to military
and veteran communities. VAREP’s online presence combined with its housing events provide financial literacy and military housing information directly to the population it targets.
Established in 2011, our leadership realized many organizations help veterans with pension, disability compensation, and critical needs but none were dedicated to financial literacy, housing, and homeownership – We are that organization. While our focus is on servicemembers and veterans, our programs are offered to all qualified families who want the American Dream of homeownership.
As a housing non-profit for vets, by vets, our success is measured not by a balance sheet for shareholders but by how many lives we can improve through our programs and services. We may not end the epidemic of homelessness among the veteran community, but can prevent it from happening in the future, one veteran at a time.
