Tickets remain for Friends of NRA banquet, auction


WALLA WALLA -- Tickets remain available for the annual fundraiser banquet and auction hosted by the Walla Walla Valley Committee of the Friends of the NRA, according to its current presiding official. The event starts at 5 p.m. on June 10.

The banquet and auction are the committee's annual fundraiser and proceeds go to support nationwide programs, as well as local grant requests.

"In the past few years, well over $40,000 have come to the area as grants to the Walla Walla and Touchet gun clubs, and to send members of the Walla Walla High School Junior ROTC shooting team to Nationals competition in Ohio," said Tim Baker, group treasurer.

Raffles and silent and live auctions are planned. The raffle grand prize is a two-gun package that includes a Ruger Red Label over-under 12 gauge shotgun and a Hawkeye 7mm-08 rifle.

Custom knives, outdoors-themed artwork, gun raffles and other items created for the event will be featured. Prizes include gift certificates and promotional items from local area businesses and organizations.
