On May 22, at 12:00, the press center of Ukraine Crisis Media Center will host a press conference of the organizers and participants of the U.S.-UKRAINE VETERANS CHARITY GOLF TOURNAMENT, which will be held on the course where the U.S.-president plays golf.

The tournament will be held as part of the three-day 1st ANNUAL U.S.-UKRAINE FREEDOM SUMMIT.

The US-UKRAINE VETERANS CHARITY GOLF TOURNAMENT will be held in the USA on June 7, 2024 at a world-class golf course and active U.S. Armed Force airbase Andrews, which is famous for being the place where U.S. Presidents play golf. The main goal of the charity golf tournament for veterans is to unite the veteran communities of Ukraine and the USA to help Ukrainian war veterans.

The event is organized by The Borderlands Foundation, which aims to support Ukrainian war heroes by funding rehabilitation programs and post-traumatic stress disorder therapy.

For Ukrainian war veterans, golf has already become a way of life after their injuries.

It was for them that the Borderlands Foundation organized the United by Golf tournament, which took place near Kyiv in April. Then injured boys and girls were involved in the game to help them recover on the course. Both physically and mentally. The United by Golf was the first event in Ukraine when war veterans played together with members of the Ukrainian golf community. The next goal is to compete at the prestigious Andrews Golf Course in June. 

The honorary guest at the upcoming tournament is U.S. Army General (retired) David Petraeus.

A three-day conference in the USA is designed to unite the two largest defense communities to develop a plan to win the war and ensure peace in Ukraine. The event includes the U.S.-UKRAINE DEFENSE FORUM, the US-UKRAINE VETERANS FORUM and concludes with the US-UKRAINE VETERANS CHARITY GOLF TOURNAMENT to support Ukrainian war veterans.
