Support the NRA and the shooting sports at Friends of NRA dinners in Tennessee, New Mexico and Oregon

Friends of NRA

Wednesday morning means it's time again to welcome Nicole McMahon, NRA Event Marketing and Communications Manager, for this week's rundown of Friends of NRA banquets scheduled to take off across the United States.

There are about 1,100 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.

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 they are adding events all the time.

Girls from the 2013 Youth Education Summit at the NRA RangeNow some of you out there might be wondering where all the money raised at Friends of NRA Dinners goes? Good question. Lots of places.

High School Rifle Teams, grants to improve shooting ranges, ammunition for the 4-H YHEC team and the Youth Education Summit (see the ladies to the left). Current underway at NRA Headquarters, the Youth Education Summit brings kids from all over the country to Washington, DC for a week-long seminar about the Constitution, the federal government and how to be a better American.

Money well spent.

Here's what's going on this week:

Chattanooga, Tennessee
Lake Charles, Louisiana

Omak, Washington

Camden, Tennessee
Dawson, Georgia
Dixon, California
Franklin, Kentucky
Lakeview, Oregon
Porterville, California
Reno, Nevada
Rio Rancho, New Mexico
