Retired Honey Brook farmer and auctioneer Ivan Stoltzfus, known for driving his tractor Johnabilt Across America for Wounded Heroes, is expanding his mission to help veterans.

Stoltzfus has been making big plans with Operation Second Chance, a non-profit organization headquartered in Germantown, Maryland that assists veterans recovering from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder and other injuries at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda, MD and nationwide.

“I am excited to announce that Across America for Wounded Heroes, Operation Second Chance, and the USVET Fund with Myers Jackson, three veteran charities are uniting for a great event, a fun and exciting Live Auction at White Buffalo Saloon, March 6 in Sarasota,” said Stoltzfus.

Stoltzfus and Myers Jackson, as seen on The DIY Network “Texas Flip and Move,” will be auctioning cars, boats, motorcycles, trips, and more with proceeds benefiting wounded veterans.

“Thanks to C Ivan Stoltzfus with his enthusiasm and willingness to do what it takes to help American Heroes, this event is going to be huge,” said Jackson.

Stoltzfus was also recently invited by Jackson to assist at a fundraising Live Auction in Denton, Texas for the annual Lincoln Regan Republican Dinner on Feb. 10.

Locally, Ivan is already booking events such as the Zerbe Sisters in Narvon and a big auction is in the works.
