  • Brought in underwriting for 15 items, amounting to $2,000
  • Hundreds of hours spent on banquet-related activities

When asked about Tom, Senior NRA Field Representative Al Herman replied:

"Tom has visited 3 local gun clubs, 2 gun shows and 1 huge outdoor show to spread the word about the program. He also makes sure a good deal of advertisements appear in gun and sports shops. 

Tom is a driving force on his committee as he is always thinking about how he can make additional dollars for The NRA Foundation. As he is on the road a lot, he delegates many jobs out to his committee members and expects them to complete those tasks. 

Tom, promotes the event on radio, travels to other events in other states to view how they present their event and pick up new idea’s, works with other committees to help make their event successful."
