About Warrior Events

Warrior Events Break

Warrior Events is a 501 3(c) organization based in Annapolis, Maryland. Its sole purpose is to enrich the lives of those wounded while serving our country as well as the lives of their family members. With the help and support of our community, Warrior Events hosts monthly events for these warriors and their families to show our appreciation for their immense sacrifices. Events such as sporting events, spa days, date nights, and much more have helped us develop meaningful and long-lasting relationships with these Americans. Warrior Events fundraises throughout the year to raise money to grant wishes for these warriors.

Our mission is to provide opportunities for interaction, enjoyment, and camaraderie for our warriors, and to raise awareness and appreciation among the public.
