J.R. Martinez is a war hero who suffered major burns to 40-percent of his body, only to return home and become an actor.
Martinez landed a role on the popular soap, All My Children, and was able to spin and shake his way to becoming the winner of Dancing with the Stars. He is coming to town to help promote the third annual Celebration of Hope dinner benefiting Charlie's Place.

The Celebration of Hope dinner will take place at 7 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 25, at the Solomon Ortiz Center. For more information, call 361-883-3402.
