Fairfax, Virginia - Friends of NRA banquets have brought Second Amendment supporters together for more than 20 years under one goal: ensuring the future of America's shooting sports.
Each year, more than 1,000 banquets are put on across the United States by dedicated volunteers determined to make a difference and help the future of our shooting sports. These banquets are filled with equally dedicated shooters, gun collectors, and general firearm enthusiasts who give money through raffles, auctions, and plain donations to Friends of NRA.
All of they money raised at banquets goes to help shooting programs through grants from The NRA Foundation; half to local programs where the donations were made and half to programs with a national scope. Besides all the good Friends of NRA banquets do, they're also a whole lot of fun for firearms enthusiasts.
