Wheelchairs for Warriors to “Roll Strong” for the Veteran Community
Gathering of Leaders Underway to Rally for an Unmet Need and Make History

Houston, Texas (May 16, 2018) – There seems to be so many needs within the veterans communities that affect the veterans and their families alike from job placement, PTSD, housing, education, health care, finances, and veterans with disabilities.

The Founders of Wheelchairs for Warriors Crystal Laramore and Heidi Hansing and their team discovered the need for wheelchairs for front-line defenders (veterans and emergency responders). “The more we researched, the more we discovered a wheelchair is not just a wheelchair for a veteran who has been severely maimed/injured in the line-of-duty. The wheelchairs we are bringing to our deserving warriors have been custom engineered for each battle-tested warrior that brings functionality and adds value back to their life,” said Crystal Laramore.

This event will be attended by anyone who is interested in being a catalyst for warriors who are in the wrong wheelchair for their life-mission.  Attendees will be inspired and challenged to be a part of history.

Date:  Monday, May 21, 2018
Time:  5:30 pm to 10 pm
Where:  Redneck Country Club – 11110 W. Airport Boulevard, Stafford, Texas 77477
Cost/Donation:  $25 to $10,000 (details available at link below)

Houston Oiler Quarterback Dan Pastorini will host the event with Lt. Commander Dan Crenshaw to speak.  Crenshaw is a U.S. Navy Seal who has a heroic story of being hit by an IED, losing sight in one eye and continuing to serve his country.  There will be a guest appearance by Charlie Melton, the U.S. Navy Seal who trained Chris Kyle and Marcus Lutrell.  A live auction will take place at 7 pm and live music will be from 8:30 pm till 10:00 pm.

Wheelchairs for Warriors is a non-profit providing custom-fit, complex, rehab mobility solutions to injured veterans, firefighters, and law enforcement that are designed for their specific needs depending on their injuries.  These wheelchairs can be operated by head, finger, foot, shoulder, puff of breath, eye movement, etc.

Texas State Representative Briscoe Cain will be recognizing Wheelchairs for Warriors Day on May 21, 2018.

iF Magazine and The Foundation Room (House of Blues)


We have imagination! – Left to Right Sheryll Jones and Sonia Guimbellot

Article by Andy Valadez (me)

What an honor and fantastic night it was to attend the iF Magazine Mixer with my friend Sonia Guimbellot, Publisher, at The Foundation Room for one of my clients Sheryll Jones, VP of Business Development for Rejoice Limousine Service (www.RejoiceLimo.com).


We arrived early via a Lincoln SUV and driver provided by Rejoice Limo, who arranged to pick up Sonia and our entourage. It was quite nice to be able to chat on the way to the event without having to focus on Houston traffic.  Our driver Jimmy Smith was excellent and got us to our destination safely and effortlessly.

In honor of the livestock and rodeo, I decided to wear jeans, boots, my .223 bracelet, Prince t-shirt, black jacket and Billy Jack Medicine Man hat (was a hit with my peers or boomers and X Generation).

Scene from the movie “Billy Jack”

DSC01282The famous door to The Foundation Room was locked (we were early) and so, a manager came to receive us and walked us over to the bar for a complimentary drink on the house.

After a few photo-ops and continued conversation, we headed over The Foundation Room and passed through security (I normally carry my firearm, but no guns allowed and they do wand). Once we are checked, we took the elevator to the room for some networking, food, adult beverages and wonderful jazz.

The mixers are held each month by invitation from iF Magazine and you never know who is going to attend from foreign dignitaries, local business leaders, photographers and videographers, technologists, venture makers, and more.

We left around 8:30 pm and were returned to our destinations safely by the limo company.  I have to tell you, it was very nice having a driver and being with friends who are imaginative and creative about business opportunity and growing initiatives for our city on an international scale.

Sheryll (Army Veteran) and myself (Marine Veteran) also serve on the board for a planned veterans museum to be built in Houston and were able to socialize with many veterans who attended as well. The museum will be a Class A structure, major tourist attraction, and mixed use facility – $1.8B budget so far.

VMIT Seal Clear 2018Looking forward to attending the next mixer and following up with some of the people I met.  A few photos from the evening are below.

Executive Leadership to Create Waves in the Pool with Innovative Customer Experiences

Houston, Texas (February 7, 2018) – What do you do when you have an amazing company and story to tell? You build your team and hire a marketing company and get ready for growth.  Rejoice Limousine Services, LLC has been in operation for three years in Houston, Texas founded by serial entrepreneur Sunny Kumar.

“I never planned to start a limousine company,” says Sunny, Founder and President, “I have consulted and grown businesses in the technology, consumer services and adult beverages sector with sales on every continent and billions of dollars in revenues. I love serving people and helping them to celebrate their time here on Earth.”

“We have seen this business as an opportunity to expand our love into the marketplace,” says Mr. Kumar, “What better way than do it, than through a luxury limo experience.”

“In our business, we have an opportunity to meet exciting people who live in luxury,” say Hellen Kumar, Co-founder and President (spouse), “We needed a marketing company to help us to translate our message and reach clients who understand what we are providing to the local and international community and thankfully our VP of Business Development, Sheryll Jones came on board to help us grow our vision.”

“As a military veteran, trusted professional in corporate America, I wanted to be a part of something truly remarkable,” says Sheryll Jones, VP of Business Development, “My career has taken me on a unique trajectory and I want to invest in the vision that Rejoice Limousine Service has for its clients and business network.”



Rejoice Limousine Service understands the principles and best-practices of the current state-of-the-industry for luxury transportation.  However, there are is always room for improvement.

Rejoice Limousine Service recently retained innovative boutique marketing agency, Marketing Dynamics to help position the company for its thoughtful and considerate offering like no other.

“It turns out that I knew Sunny from a previous introduction over 10 years ago and was reintroduced by Sheryll,” says Andy Valadez of Marketing Dynamics, “I knew they were unlike any other company I have experienced and had an opportunity to see them in action at a recent bridal reception for brides in Katy.  The dynamic team came together and decided to bless a husband and wife Pastoral couple with an anniversary limo ride coming up in May.  The couple cried and little did we know, they had just survived a tough year with cancer and didn’t know what they were going to do for their anniversary. This is going to be a fun ride.”
