NRA supporters raise money for future of America's shooting sports in Indianapolis
Indianapolis, Indiana - A few thousand NRA members gathered in Indianapolis' massive Lucas Oil Stadium last night to raise money for the future of America's shooting sports traditions. They were there for the National NRA Foundation Banquet & Auction, the unofficial kickoff event of the NRA Annual Meetings & Exhibits.
Guests are treated to a night of food, fun, and fundraising knowing that 100% of the money raised will go towards local, state, and national shooting sports interest. From clubs that need equipment, to constructing new shooting ranges, to funding programs like Eddie Eagle GunSafe that keep our children safer, The NRA Foundation is the leading charitable organization in support of America's shooting heritage.
Between last night's raffles, games, and auctions, the event featured dozens of guns, personalized NRA gear, and exciting hunts. Attendees were treated to speeches by NRA Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre, NRA President Jim Porter, and many ardent supporters of the NRA's fight to protect our Second Amendment rights and foster the next generation's love of the shooting sports.
In addition to last night's national event at the NRA Annual Meetings, more than 1,000 fundraising banquets are held each year throughout the United States. The generosity of people who consider themselves true friends of the NRA make it possible for so many of our programs and services to be enjoyed by millions of Americans for generations to come.
