JR Martinez

Omaha Home for Boys is honored to welcome Jose Rene “J.R.” Martinez, an American actor, author, motivational speaker, and retired U.S. Army soldier, to our 2018 Imagine Our Youth Fundraising Celebration!

In March of 2003, Martinez was deployed to Iraq. Shortly thereafter in April he suffered a devastating injury when his Humvee hit a roadside bomb and he sustained severe burns to over 34 percent of his body.

After a grueling recovery that tested Martinez’s determination like never before, he became an actor, author and highly sought-after motivational speaker.

Martinez began his acting career on the Emmy Award winning daytime drama All My Children starring as injured veteran Brot Monroe. Since then he’s appeared on numerous television shows, including Dancing with the Stars where he won season 13 with his dance partner Karina Smirnoff.

Martinez is the author of the New York Times bestseller Full of Heart: My Story of Survival, Strength, and Spirit. He also serves as a spokesperson for Operation Finally Home, as well as for the Phoenix Society for Burn Survivors, and Glasswing International.

Martinez travels the country speaking about his experiences and will bring his message of resilience and hope to the 2018 Imagine Our Youth Fundraising Celebration.

Bruce Springsteen on Broadway
City Slickers Experience
Thrill of the Hunt at Dismal River Club
Kentucky Bourbon Trail

Enjoy an intimate evening with The Boss, his guitar, a piano and his stories as Bruce Springsteen brings his solo acoustic performance to Broadway. 

This Experience Includes: 

  • 2 mezzanine tickets to Bruce Springsteen on Broadway
  • 2-night stay in a standard guest room at the Hyatt, Hilton, Marriott, Sheraton or comparable hotel

Enjoy two mezzanine level tickets to Springsteen on Broadway, the autobiographical acoustic rock concert from the legendary Bruce Springsteen.

The show has extended its previously sold out run for a third time. Since the show arrived on Broadway in late 2017, fans and critics alike have been wowed by The Boss. The Oscar and Grammy-winning musician treads new theatrical territory with Springsteen on Broadway. The production, which features The Boss telling stories about his life and delivering riveting arrangements of his songs, has been an enormous success. “As portraits of artists go,” Jesse Green wrote in The New York Times, “there may never have been anything as real – and beautiful – on Broadway.” 

While largely a solo show, the singer’s wife Patti Scialfa joins him onstage for a few songs. The Boss’ entrance at the stage door is adjacent to the audience entrance. You may see a crowd standing behind police barricades. Springsteen has signed autographs—though there is no guarantee—and some lucky fans have snapped some up-close photos either before or after the show.

Note:  Winning bidder to provide three date options. Performances are scheduled to run through December 15, 2018 at the Walter Kerr Theatre on Broadway. The show is recommended for ages 16 and older. Must be booked a minimum of 60 days in advance.

During your 8-hour excursion you will enjoy a sampling of iconic distillery tours and tastings on what’s known as the “South Route” of the Kentucky Bourbon Trail. Your personal tour leader will share interesting history and knowledge as you sit back and enjoy the ride…soaking in the beautiful scenery along the way.  

Stitzel-Weller Exclusive Tour & Tasting – Your tour starts when your tour leader arrives at the hotel with a luxury SUV to take your party of two in style to your first stop. Originally opened on Derby Day in 1935, Stitzel-Weller is home to Bulleit Bourbon, a Diageo brand of Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey that is characterized by its high rye content and aged for at least six years. This historic distillery sits just a few miles from Louisville’s thriving downtown scene.  

Maker’s Mark Tour & Tasting – Maker’s Mark is a beautiful distillery in Kentucky, nestled along Whisky Creek. The tour explores the distillery and warehouses and ends in a well-appointed tasting room. Each of you will receive a bottle of Maker’s Mark to hand-dip in their iconic red wax. Maker’s Mark has one of the most recognizable package designs in the liquor industry. If you place two bottles side by side, you will notice that the wax seal is never the same. That’s because each bottle is hand dipped by distillery staff to create the trademark tendrils of wax that drip down the sides. Bring your bottle home to show your friends!  

Lunch for 2 – Enjoy lunch in historic Bardstown, listed as one of the 100 Best Small Towns in America and known for its southern charm.   

Jim Beam Tour & Tasting – Jim Beam is one of the largest distilleries in the world and the #1 bourbon in the world. They claim if they stopped production today they have enough bourbon aging in their warehouses to meet demand for the next twenty years. Brands include Jim Beam Straight Bourbon, Booker’s, Baker’s, Basil Hayden, Knob Creek, Devil’s Cut, Old Tub, Red Stag, Jim Beam Honey and Knob Creek Smoked Maple. Enjoy a tour of the distillery, warehouse, bottling line, and a small museum of commemorative decanters. Enjoy your ride back to the hotel after a full day on The Bourbon Trail.  

Should you prefer to customize your day’s itinerary, the driver and vehicle are at your disposal for eight consecutive hours. Driver’s gratuity included. You must be 21 to participate in the tastings but guests of all ages are welcome on the tours.
