Hernando County Friends of NRA plans to hold a fundraiser dinner banquet and auction on Thursday, September 12, 2013, at 6 p.m., located at Faith Evangelical Presbyterian Church, 200 Mt. Fair Ave., Brooksville, FL.
Friends of NRA is a grassroots event that supports thousands of community service programs related to firearm safety and education, hunter safety, wildlife conservation, gun range improvements, youth marksmanship, youth shooting clubs, JROTC units, law enforcement, and other shooting interests.
At a Friends of NRA banquet, attendees will meet others of similar interests in hunting and the shooting sports, as well as business owners and professionals, insurance executives, bankers, lawyers, teachers, and retired folks, all working together to support an important cause in preserving our Second Amendment rights and heritage.
This fun and delicious dinner event which will feature both a live and silent auction, door prizes, and game tables for a chance to win more prizes.
Attendees will also have a chance to win a drawing for a Thompson Tommy Gun with violin case, a Smith and Wesson Governor pistol that shoots both .45 caliber pistol cartridges and .410 shotgun shells, and a TriStar Tec-12 shotgun.
The 2013 standard NRA banquet package of items will also be auctioned off as well, such as firearms, knives, art, jewelry, and more. These items are unique, custom, or limited-in-production, and in some cases, available only at Friends of NRA events.

Fund proceeds raised at the event will be used to support shooting sports and firearms safety and education programs within the state of Florida and other qualifying national-level gun safety programs like the NRA’s Eddie Eagle GunSafe® program for children. State Fund Committee volunteers review grant applications from local community groups, such as 4-H Club shooting groups and JROTC units, and then decide on how to best allocate the funds raised. The NRA Foundation is a 501(c)(3) organization.
