Full Throttle Indoor Karting is a blast. The Karts run 40 mph and you are 6" off the ground, so you are flying. Owner Aaron Banfield is as generous as possible with his business promotions. He has been a sponsor, a donor, and a key cog in our financial initiatives. He is the ultimate businessman and is very successful with the business model he has in place. He gives veterans in some type of recovery free blocks of time to drive on Sunday mornings. I have joined forces with him as our principle sponsor for the Eugene Winston Memorial Scholarhip, the past two years. Full Throttle has opened a second loocation in Florence, KY. Contact him at aaron@gofullthrottle.com for promotions or call 513-341-5278. Go Karting!

The only way the My GI Foundation was able to finance eighteen new headstones and a commemorative pulpit stone was by the extreme generosity of a hometown company. Bill Hounshell has worked with us for over a month on every detail and has followed up on every email or question we have had.  You can reach him at 513-615-1929 or at bhounshell@tuftsschildmeyer.com.

Art Jarvis is the president of the Loveland School Board, a man who's generosity is astounding, and a very successful financier.

When everybody knows you and stops to shake your hand you have made an impact. You can contact him at jarvisa@fuse.net 513-377-8285

Sam David is usually within ten feet of the aforementioned Art Jarvis. Sam brings his Larosa's trailer to just about any outdoor high school event and is not only successful, but extremely generous too. He is really active in our booster club and has donateed more money and in-kind services than can be quantified. He is a great man and is very respected within our community. He really helped us with Operation Winter Weather last year. Sam owns several Larosa's, but his professional contact is sam.david@fuse.net. 

Frank Oberlee is a just and trustworthy man. He has put together two mortgage products for the two houses my parents have built. He was a top executive lender before he decided to go to work for himself. He will take you through the mortgage process at your speed and will return calls and do whatever he says he is going to do. I shake hands with senators, congressmen, city councilmen, Fortune 500 executives, and nobody beats Frank's forthright style of conducting business.

Steve Nester owns two successful Buckeye Running athletic shoe stores and a timing company. If someone is running a major race he will be there with his awesome shoe shuttle. Steve gives financial and in-kind donations with unbelievable generosity. He has locations in Mason 513-234-0666 and on Beechmont avenue. He is also the Girl's Head XC Coach at Loveland high School. Need an entire running event put together, reach out to him at scnester@fuse.net.

Thank You Senator

Senator Joe Uecker took me to lunch when I was fourteen to discuss high level military service and a career in government service. He is a regular speaker at My GI Foundation banquets and is always ready to lend a hand to support my philanthropy and service to veterans. He has represented the 14th District since 2013 as a Republican member of the Ohio Senate.
