Support the NRA and the shooting sports at Friends of NRA dinners in Illinois, New York, Texas and more
Fairfax, Virginia - Here are the next batch of upcoming Friends of NRA banquets across the country courtesy of Nicole McMahon, NRA Event Marketing and Communications Manager.
We're in the final stretch of this year's banquet season. A little over 150 dinners remain of the more than 1,100 Friends of NRA held annually throughout the United States. None of these events would have been possible without the hard work of 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.
To attend an event in your neighborhood, check the Friends of NRA website for a list of upcoming events in your state. Bookmark that page while you're at it because next year's events will begin popping up soon.
