The Knights of Columbus, a fraternal service organization, will host its 4th Annual Knights United in Charity Golf Tournament Monday, June 17 at Raspberry Falls Golf and Hunt Club in Leesburg, Va., to support Boulder Crest Retreat,http://www.bouldercrestretreat.org, a rural sanctuary under construction in Bluemont, Va. and set to open in September 2013 for wounded warriors and their families.

“The Knights of Columbus are pleased to support Boulder Crest Retreat in our 4th Annual Knights United in Charity Golf Tournament,” said Tom Hudes, Grand Knight of Holy Family Council. “This sanctuary will be a welcome addition to the many wounded warrior support programs in the national capital region, and our goal is to raise money and provide volunteer support for the retreat.”

The Knights United in Charity Golf Tournament has a fundraising goal of $20,000 and is the latest local fundraising effort for Boulder Crest Retreat, a new rural sanctuary for the physical recovery and mental healing processes of wounded warriors and their families. Veteran Management Services, Inc., a veteran- owned small business, has agreed to serve as a Title Sponsor for the fundraising event.

“I am very grateful to the Knights of Columbus and their generosity in hosting their annual Knights United in Charity Golf Tournament to support Boulder Crest Retreat,” said Ken Falke, founder of Boulder Crest Retreat and a retired U.S. Navy Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) Technician. “We look forward to the event, which will help us serve our nation’s wounded warriors and their families at the retreat.”

Boulder Crest Retreat, currently under construction and opening in September 2013, is a sanctuary for wounded warriors and their families to enjoy wellness programs and recreational activities to assist in the physical, mental and spiritual recovery processes. The retreat is privately funded and a capital campaign is underway to raise $10 million. While the retreat has crossed the halfway milestone in its fundraising goal, an additional $5 million in support is still very much needed.
