Fairfax, Virginia - Wednesday morning means it's time again to check in on the Friends of NRA banquets scheduled around the country this next week.

There are about 1,000 Friends of NRA dinners held every year and they're all driven, and put on, by our dedicated volunteers. All money raised at banquets goes right back into supporting the shooting sports - half into national programs and half into local and state programs where the banquet was held. If you haven't made it to one of our tables, fear not. The season has just begun, there are plenty of opportunities to catch up.

Friends of NRA

Fairfax, Virginia - Straight from the NRA's Event Marketing and Communications Manager, Nicole McMahon, here's a big update of Friends of NRA banquets coming up this next week.

Friends of NRA banquets are full of great people who support the Second Amendment and want to raise money for local, state and national shooting sports programs. Each event is run by our absolutely dedicated volunteers. Without their help, Friends of NRA would not be able to have such reach across the country or make as much of an impact on the future of our shooting sports heritage as we do today.

If you haven't made it to one of our tables yet, fear not.

Fairfax, Virginia - It's back! Friends of NRA banquet season has begun anew with its 2014 campaign. Thanks to NRA Event Marketing and Communications Manager Nicole McMahon, here are your upcoming banquets over the next few days.
