Thanks to All the Visiting Chefs

We are less than a week away from when the 100th Wounded Warrior and their family will check in for a week stay at the Warrior Retreat at Bull Run. As we approach this milestone event all the volunteer Staff Chefs and Sous Chefs want to thank the over 60 Visiting Chefs that come out each Sunday night and prepare amazing meals for the families. It is almost always the best dinner the family has ever had, and it means so much to us to be part of that.
