MUHLENBERG COUNTY, Ky. (9/10/13) – The Paradise Friends of NRA plans to hold a banquet at the Central City Convention Center at 5:30 pm on Saturday, September 28. Tickets may be purchased online, or by calling (270) 338-3630.
Friends of NRA is a key grassroots event that supports thousands of community services related to firearm education, hunter safety, wildlife conservation, range improvements, youth marksmanship, law enforcement, and other shooting sports interests. 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. There are several pre-event raffles currently underway. Tickets are available from any Paradise committee Member.
The Paradise Committee has set up a Facebook page – “Friends of NRA – Paradise Committee, Kentucky” to keep followers up-to-date on the process.
Friends of NRA is an exciting fundraising program run by people from all walks of life. At a Friends of NRA banquet, you’ll meet fire chiefs, engineers, shopkeepers, police officers, teachers, news officials and many more mainstream citizens working together to support an important cause in preserving our rights and heritage.
Since 1993 there has been over $1,300,000 in grants supplied to Kentucky Programs. Half of the money raised by each Friends of NRA banquet will be spent in Kentucky. 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 Committees made up of volunteers review grant applications from local organizations and make recommendations to The NRA Foundation on how the money might best be used in their areas.
