Fundraising dinner to include games, auctions and fun
Harrisburg, Pennsylvania - The last of the day's patrons are currently making their way out of the PA Farm Show Complex and Expo Center Center. The final Friday of the Great American Outdoor Show in the books, it's time to return home. Only not everyone is headed home.
Some are heading to work, some are heading to their hotels, and some are making their way to the second floor PA Preferred Ballroom for the NRA Foundation dinner.
"We've been looking forward to this all week," said Judy from Hershey, Pennsylvania.
New this year, the Foundation Dinner is yet another way the National Rifle Association supports the shooting sports. The money raised is earmarked for the Foundation's overall fund which could include projects in Pennsylvania, Hawaii and California. Not physically, of course, but that's where the money will ultimately be spent.
"The NRA Foundation Dinner is a great way to support the shooting sports," explained Event Marketing and Communications Manager Nicole McMahon. "The funds generated this
evening will go towards fixing shooting ranges, covering travel expenses for shooting teams or buying ammunition for shooting competitions in Pennsylvania and around the country."
As the crowd files in, they're met with a variety of activities including silent auctions, games of chance and tables filled with NRA related merchandise. Though overwhelming at first, it's not long before they embrace the festivities. Things are looking good.
