MYERSVILLE, MD – May 24, 2012 – Musket Ridge Golf Club proudly announces its second Love & Liberty Wedding Giveaway. Open to active members of the US military, veterans of the past 11 years or active first responders, the Love & Liberty Wedding Giveaway will provide one couple who serves our community and country a free wedding at Catoctin Hall at Musket Ridge on Tuesday, September 11, 2012.

Damon DeVito, managing director of Affinity Management (, which runs Musket Ridge, commented, “How do we properly thank the young men and women risking their lives on the front lines at home and abroad? The reality is we can’t fully show the magnitude of our appreciation, but this is our way of showing a token of thanks.”

Musket Ridge opened in September 2001 and that anniversary has long weighed heavy in staff and management’s memory. “With the Love & Liberty Wedding Giveaway, we claim that day back so we don’t give in to terrorism. We think that day should belong to proud Americans and who better than our military and first responders,” added DeVito.

Musket Ridge will donate a wedding ceremony with sweeping mountain views across one of Maryland’s most beautiful and highly rated golf courses. The chosen couple’s 150 guests will enjoy a seated dinner reception in the light-filled Catoctin Hall and experience exquisite food with superb service. There is no venue fee and all food and non-alcoholic beverages have been donated by Musket Ridge.

Couples may nominate themselves or be nominated by a third party and must compose 50 words or less about why the couple deserves a free wedding at

Catoctin Hall at Musket Ridge has been called “Maryland’s Best New Event Venue” and is the first zero food waste facility on the East Coast. Musket Ridge has been one of Golfweek’s top ten golf courses in Maryland for the past 6 years and was recently named the #2 Public Course Within an Hour of Congressional CC by Golf Digest.
