See you at the Friends of NRA Banquet

NRA Foundation

We are taking this Saturday off, so that we can attend the Friends of NRA Banquet.  We are supporters of the shooting sports and the NRA Foundation has made great contributions toward education and commitment towards the shooting sports.  Here is the NRA Foundation’s own description of these banquets:

There is something for everyone at a Friends of NRA banquet. From the moment you walk in, the atmosphere is brimming with excitement. Whether you’re keeping an eye on that unique item in the silent auction, trying your luck at the game tables, or just dining on some delicious food, you’ll be sure to have a good time. It’s a family friendly event chock-full of everything from exclusive, limited edition merchandise, firearms, knives, art, jewelry, and more. Not to mention all the great people you’ll meet in the process!
Nothing makes a Friends of NRA banquet more unique than the people who make it all happen. Working with NRA Field Staff, thousands of dedicated individuals across America, passionate and concerned about the future of the shooting sports, participate in the program by organizing committees, securing donations, selling tickets, and hosting a Friends of NRA banquet in their communities. Whether you’re serving on the committee or just attending, you’ll meet fire chiefs, engineers, local business owners, law enforcement, and teachers – all mainstream citizens working together to secure the Second Amendment and raise money for the shooting sports.
Amongst the fun and fellowship, Friends of NRA banquets boil down to one goal— fund-raising for the future of the shooting sports. Since its inception in 1992, Friends of NRA has held over 15,000 events, reached over 2.8 million attendees and raised over $200 million for The NRA Foundation, a 501(c)(3) charitable organization. Each year, The NRA Foundation allocates half of all net proceeds to fund projects within the state in which the money was raised and uses the other half to fund similar projects with a national scope.
Committee volunteers are appointed to State Fund Committees to make recommendations for local grant funding in areas such as youth firearm safety and education programs, hunter education, range development and improvement, women’s training seminars, and wildlife conservation efforts. Recognizing that America’s young people represent the future of the shooting sports, State Fund Committee grants are frequently given to youth programs, allocating more than 50% of grant monies to this important area.
So whether you attend a Friends of NRA banquet for the fun, fellowship, or fund-raising, you can be confident that you are helping safeguard programs across the nation that prepare today’s generations to be tomorrow’s guardians of the Second Amendment.  source:
