NRA Foundation Announces Wall of Guns Sponsors for 2016 NRA Annual Meetings in Louisville
LOUSIVILLE, Ky. – The NRA Foundation’s extremely popular Wall of Guns (WOG) will be returning to the National Rifle Association’s 145th NRA Annual Meetings and Exhibits May 20-22, 2016. Funds raised at the WOG benefit The NRA Foundation, America’s leading charitable organization in support of the shooting sports.
“We cannot thank our sponsors enough for their support,” said NRA Director of Volunteer Fundraising Sarah Engeset. “Every year, we tweak our fundraising efforts in order to garner more dollars and this year is no different. We have more donated firearms than ever before which allows us to raffle off a Sponsorship Package filled with premium merchandise from all our sponsors.”
The attendee-favorite event will take place in the lobby of the Kentucky Exposition Center (KEC) May 20-22, and features more than 70 different makes and models for winners to select from. Sponsored by Henry Repeating Arms, Kimber Mfg. Inc., and Kel-Tec, tickets are $20 and a winner will be drawn for every 100 tickets purchased. Winners choose one firearm/gear from the “Pick One” side, or two firearms/gear from the “Pick Two” side. After every 10 rounds sold, a drawing will be held for the Century Arms “Draw of the Century” firearm.
The 2016 NRA Annual Meetings are expected to bring more than 70,000 Second Amendment enthusiasts to Louisville May 19-22. This celebration of America’s shooting traditions features more than 550 eye-catching displays from the country’s top firearms, knife, wildlife art, shooting accessories, hunting gear, and ATV companies.
