Support the NRA and the shooting sports at Friends of NRA dinners next week in more than two dozen states

Friends of NRA

Fairfax, Virginia - Friends of NRA has brought Second Amendment supporters together for more than 20 years with its fundraising banquets to ensure a future for America's shooting sports.

With more than 1,000 banquets held annually across the United States thanks to dedicated volunteers, the funds raised at Friends of NRA banquets make a real difference. Half of all money raised at a banquet goes right back into grants for shooting sports programs in that area like Boy Scout troops, 4-H clubs, high school shooting teams, Women On Target programs, and many more. The other half supports programs with a national scope like Eddie Eagle GunSafe. Besides all the good banquets do, they're a whole lot of fun!

If you haven't attended a banquet, try one out. Below are all the banquets coming up for the next week. Don't see one near you? There are plenty left on the docket this year. Visit the Friends of NRA website and see what's coming up in your neck of the woods.
