On behalf of the Union County/Monroe N.C. Friends of NRA Committee, I welcome you to our website. We are pleased that you stopped by, and hope that we will soon be able to meet you in person at our 14th Annual Friends of NRA Banquet.
The Friends of NRA Program is a fundraising event which encourages community involvement and gives 100% of the money raised to various shooting related programs. The NRA Foundation (Friends of NRA) was established in 1990 as a 501( c )( 3 ) tax-exempt organization. The funds raised at our event go to many worthwhile projects such as youth education programs, scholarships, firearm training and safety, range development and conservation efforts which cannot fund themselves. One half of the funds raised at our event will stay in the state of North Carolina, while the other half will be distributed across the United States. These grants are dependent upon the need and propose of the programs across the state and the nation.
Our upcoming event will be held on August 24th, 2013, at the Union County Agricultural Center, 3230 Presson Road, Monroe N.C. The doors open at 5:00pm and the program begins at 6:00pm, with dinner being served at 7:00pm. The agenda for the night includes live & silent auctions, raffles and drawings of selected artwork, merchandise and firearms.
The Door Prize for our 14th Annual Friends of NRA Banquet is a Benelli Ultra Light 12 ga Shotgun. In addition to a great door prize, we also continue our “Winner Take All” Gun Safe Raffle which will include four firearms and a gun safe. Please check out our Facebook page at Union County/Monroe NC Friends of NRA and return to this website for more information about upcoming events.
Thank you for your interest and your support.
Union County Friends of NRA Chairman
