Hope for the Holidays: San Diego Real Estate Agency to Gift Military Veteran Family $15,000

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwired - Dec 4, 2013) -  In the spirit of giving this holiday season, Mark Di Tommaso, licensed real estate broker and founder of SoCal eRealty, will be gifting $15,000 to a San Diego-based military veteran family. Di Tommaso is now calling for 'Hope for the Holidays' entries that describe a family's current financial hardship.

Military veteran families may self-submit entries or be nominated by any U.S. citizen. The selected family will be presented the award at their home on Dec. 23, 2013.

"I know there are many families out there in great need of assistance and I feel compelled to pay it forward, this year and in the years to come. Choosing a military veteran just makes sense to me. My grandfather is a retired Navy serviceman and I am in awe of veterans every day -- it's the least I could do to give thanks."

A San Diego native and former middle school teacher, Di Tommaso's passion for community, military, San Diego beaches, charity and family continues to be his driving force in all his endeavors. Newly engaged, Di Tommaso is thrilled by the promise of providing hope to one of our many deserving veteran families.

Requirements for entry:

  • Receiving family must be U.S. military veteran
  • Receiving family must provide military verification discharge form (DD214)
