The public is invited to attend the 17th annual Friends of NRA event Saturday, April 27, at the Hodag Banquet Center in Rhine­lander.

One hundred percent of the net proceeds from this event support nonprofit public benefit programs such as youth firearm safety and education programs, hunter education, high school trap teams, range development and improvement, women’s training seminars and more.

In 2019, more than $341,898 in grants were awarded to Wisconsin nonprofits including the local Harshaw Sportsman’s Club, Hodag Sports Club and Three Lakes Trap Team. Ceremonial checks will be presented to these nonprofits at the Friends of NRA event.

The evening will include a dinner buffet and a variety of raffles, auctions and other opportunities for chances to win merchandise and fire­arms. Tickets are $50 per person. There is limited seating, so guests should register in advance to confirm a ticket and early bird specials.
