The NRA Foundation continued its tradition of excellence in fundraising at their annual Sportsmen’s Banquet at the Great American Outdoor Show Sat., Feb. 4, generating hundreds of thousands of dollars in support of their mission to protecting the future of the shooting sports. The banquet, sponsored by longtime Foundation partners Henry Repeating Arms and Century Arms, featured special auctions of firearms, hunting trips, knives, ammo, gear, art, and more. Proceeds from the auctions help fund the NRA’s renowned and important firearms education and training programs, gun safety classes, hunter services, wildlife conservation, marksmanship training and other programs enjoyed by tens of thousands of Americans nationwide each year.

Special items auctioned included the special edition Great American Outdoor Show knife made by Silver Stag used to cut the ceremonial ribbon to open the show that sold for $550, a Henry Golden Boy Silver rifle from November’s world-record setting Henry 1,000 Man Shoot Presented by NRA that sold for nearly $1,100, and a Century Arms rifle that auctioned for $2,100. 

In total, the sold-out banquet netted more than $70,000 for The NRA Foundation. 

“This was another successful year for The NRA Foundation thanks to the support of our banquet sponsors Henry and Century Arms and our tireless volunteers,” said NRA Director of Volunteer Fundraising Sarah Engeset. “We always look forward to seeing the familiar faces of devoted attendees and celebrating the future of freedom on a united front.”

In addition to the auctions, Henry Repeating Arms’ General Manager Andy Wickstrom presented tribute rifles to four deserving central Pennsylvania-area individuals who have provided selfless service to their communities, including Fire Chief Nathan Tracey of Goodwill Fire Company in York Township, Detective Edward Haney of the Swatara Township Police Department, Pennsylvania State Sr. Vice Commander for the VFW Dwight Fuhrman, and State VFW Commander Thomas Brown.
