NRA Charity Dinner on tap

Delta Rivers Friends of NRA is holding their annual charity dinner and fund-raising auction on Sept. 21 at Harbor Oaks Restaurant in Pine Bluff's Regional Park. This dinner is open to the public, and doors open at 5:30 pm. Tickets must be purchased in advance, and are $25. The ticket gets you into the event and a BBQ dinner. Tickets will NOT be sold at the door. Once at the event, the evening is filled with games, drawings, a silent auction, and ends with a live auction to win a variety of over 100 great, unique items, including over 25 guns. Other available items include: sculptures, framed art, hunting equipment, children's toys, shooting accessories and household items. Many of the available items are collectable because they are made exclusively for Friends of NRA. Many people have heard of the NRA, but not "Friends of NRA." Friends of NRA is a 501(c)(3) charity, and donations are tax deductible. 100% of all money raised at these events is given out in grants to support youth shooting & safety education, and range development. Common organizations that receive these grants include local 4H, Boy Scouts, and Junior ROTC programs. This is a very fun charity event, for a worthy cause, with great food. Everyone interested in youth education and the shooting sports should attend. To purchase tickets, reserve a table, make a donation, or sponsor this great event, contact Ed Monk at 870-273-1113 or edmonk@aol.com .
