Friends of NRA to host fundraiser


Delta Rivers Friends of the National Rifle Association is holding its annual charity dinner and fundraising auction on Saturday, Sept. 21, at Harbor Oaks Restaurant in Regional Park.

This dinner is open to the public. Doors open at 5:30 p.m. Tickets must be purchased in advance and are $25, which covers entry and a barbecue dinner. Tickets will not be sold at the door.

The evening will include games, drawings, a silent auction and a live auction with more than 100 items, including more than 25 guns. Other items include: sculptures, framed art, hunting equipment, children’s toys, shooting accessories and household items. Many of the available items are collectible because they are made exclusively for Friends of NRA.

Friends of NRA is a nonprofit. One hundred percent of the funds raised at such events are given out in grants to support youth shooting and safety education and range development. Common organizations that receive these grants include local 4H, Boy Scouts and Junior ROTC programs.
