The San Saba County Friends of the NRA Banquet will be held Thursday, June 4th at the San Saba Civic Center. Banquet tickets are still available at Arrowhead Bank, Hamrick’s Automotive, and at Cherokee Grocery. Tickets may also be purchased by calling 325-622-4393 or 325-372-6425.
The banquet will feature a meal, catered by Gage’s BBQ, and various auctions and drawings for firearms and related merchandise including wildlife art, knives, home décor and more.
Friends of NRA is a key event that supports thousands of community service related to firearm education, hunter safety, wildlife conservation, range improvements, youth marksmanship, and law enforcement among others.
Working with NRA field representatives, the members and volunteers organize banquets in their communities, complete with auctions, special drawings, and fellowship. Much of the merchandise at the banquets is donated or provided at reduced cost by hundreds of participating vendors.
Friends of the NRA is the face of the NRA, run at the grassroots level by people from all walks of life. At a Friends of NRA banquet, you'll meet fire chiefs, engineers, shopkeepers, police officers, and teachers: all mainstream citizens working together to support an important cause in preserving our rights and heritage.
Half of the profits raised by each Friends of NRA banquet will be spent in the state which it was held. The other half supports qualifying national-level programs like the Eddie Eagle Gunsafe Program, Women on Target, and other educational and safety services.
State Fund Committies made up of volunteers review grant applications from local organizations and make recommendations to The NRA Foundation on how the money might be used in their areas. For more information about Friends of NRA, visit www.friendsofnra.org.
