“We would like to thank all of our sponsors who continually support our mission,” said Goshen Valley Boys Ranch Residential Life Director and Classic Director Zach Blend.  “Mahatma Gandhi once said, ‘The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.’ Each year, our sponsors and their unwavering commitment underscore how service can transform lives.”

For a decade, Goshen Valley Boys Ranch, which recently received its accreditation from the internationally recognized Council on Accreditation, has provided refuge and fundamental life skills to at-risk young men between the ages of nine and 21.

Since 2006, the Goshen Valley Golf Classic has raised more than $332,000 to benefit the boys living on the ranch. Goshen Valley has been able to increase the number of licensed beds for its residents by nearly 53 percent in three years.
