Thanks to Nicole for taking the time to compile all of NRA Field Operations' accomplishments. It's been an exceptional year for Friends of NRA events!
As the year is coming to a close, Friends of NRA continues to break records thought impossible given the economic forecast for this past year. October was no different; the month started on a high note and ended with a big bang!
At the beginning of October, we reported that online ticket sales surpassed the $100,000 mark. 140 events later, Friends are now at over $150,000 in online ticket sales with about 3,700 online purchases.
Towards the middle of the month, we reported that we broke last year’s record of $15.9 million in net revenue and are now at an astounding $17 million. In October alone we raised over $1.6 million, up 20 percent overall from last year. With about 55 events to go, Friends of NRA will be approaching, if not exceeding, the $17.5 million point by the end of the year.
This year has not only been a record breaking year for online ticket sales and net income, but also for attendance at Friends of NRA events. Banquets boasted over 190,000 attendees, and Nick Tsoucalas, Financial Manager in Field Operations, estimates that Friends of NRA will draw 200,000 attendees by year close.
