The second annual NRA Foundation Banquet will be held Thursday, February 12 in the Pennsylvania Farm Show Complex’s PA Preferred Ballroom. The night of entertainment begins at 6:30 PM and will feature home-style barbecue, a live and silent auction, and numerous games to raise money for national, state, and local programs that support America’s shooting heritage.
“We are proud to announce Henry Repeating Arms as our National NRA Foundation banquet sponsor,” said Director of Volunteer Fundraising Sarah Engeset. “We truly appreciate the continued generosity Henry Repeating Arms has shown to The NRA Foundation through national donations and sponsorships.
