1,500 patriots gathered for a night of fun, food, firearms, and fellowship at the National NRA Foundation Banquet.
For 26 years, Friends of NRA has raised money for the future of the shooting sports at local events across the country. Attendees had the chance to bid in the silent auction as well as view a selection of featured items reserved for live auction which included firearms, merchandise, gear, hunting trips and much more.
One of the most memorable moments of the evening was when Anthony Imperato, President of Henry Repeating Arms took to the stage to honor three Texas heroes. One by one, Anthony shared stories of heroism and invited the men on stage to thank them for their bravery as they were presented with their own Henry rifle.
A highlight of the evening is always the live auction, as bidders focused their attention on unique merchandise such as a Henry 20th Anniversary Edition Big Boy, a Polaris 570 Ranger, a Thin Blue Line Wooden Flag signed by Sheriff David A. Clarke Jr., and a Charlie Daniels signed Fiddle and Hat Donated by Charlie Daniels himself.
The National NRA Foundation Banquet truly was an evening of fun, food, firearms, and fellowship from start to finish and knowing contributions support national youth shooting sports programs for years to come made it all the better to be a part of.
