Mr. Kearns will perform at approximately 6:30 p.m.
"We're very grateful that Salamander Resort & Spa has chosen to support the Coalition through this important event," saidDavid Walker, president and CEO of the Coalition to Salute America's Heroes. "I've attended several functions at which Mr. Kearns has performed, and he is truly magnificent. This is going to be an inspiring evening of song and patriotism."
"We're honored to have the incredibly gifted Mr. Kearns perform at this very special event to support our mission of helping military members and their families," said Ken Falke, Founder of Boulder Crest Retreat. "We look forward to an evening of extraordinary entertainment, music, and food at this beautiful new resort."
The "Evening of Music to Celebrate the Irish Season and Benefit Military Charities" will take place in the Middleburg Ballroom of the Salamander Resort and feature two sets of songs by Mr. Kearns with hors d'oeuvres and open bar. Tickets for the general reception and performance are $100 per individual / $175 per couple. There also will be a VIP meet and greet opportunity at 8 p.m. with specialty cordials and desserts by pastry chef Jason Reaves, winner of the Food Network's Cake Challenge.

Boulder Crest Retreat in Bluemont, Va., is a 37-acre rural retreat that provides free accommodations and recreational and therapeutic activities and programs to help wounded military service members, veterans and their families reconnect and recover. The Coalition to Salute America's Heroes provides financial assistance and programs to wounded military members and veterans that includes emergency financial assistance and national employment resources.
"Anthony Kearns is delighted to lend his powerful voice to support two outstanding veterans' organizations at the first-ever military charity benefit held at Salamander Resort & Spa - one of the area's most exciting resorts," said Kirsten Fedewa, Kearns' publicist. Kearns, who has a robust international solo career, has become a favorite among the U.S. military and military service organizations. Last year, he performed as the guest of General Martin Dempsey, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, in tribute to Medal of Honor recipients and at the World War II Memorial to honor the nation's "Greatest Generation." Mr. Kearns will be accompanied by Patrick Healy, who has performed with the English National Opera.
