The members of West Central Illinois Friends of NRA hope you will join us for our upcoming 3rd Annual dinner March 19,2015 at the American Legion Hall in Jacksonville, Illinois!

Thanks to your support, our committee once again made the High Caliber Club raising nearly $80,000 for the Friends of NRA non-profit. Additionally, your support of this very worthy cause has ensured shooting for generations to come and is protecting our second amendment. 100% of the net proceeds go to support Friends of the NRA programs such as local youth shooting teams, 4-H, Boy Scouts, ROTC, gun range development, Hunter Safety, Eddie Eagle, Women on Target, etc. Since 1995 over $3,000,000 million has been spent in Illinois, with over 1 million in the past 3 years and we have reached over 330,000 kids/students through our Eddie Eagle Program in Illinois. The last weekend of January 2014, Committee Chairs in Southern Illinois gave out thousands of dollars in grants. 

The NRA Foundation is a 501 (C) (3) Corporation and donations or contributions to the Friends of NRA are tax deductible to the extent allowed by law. 100% of the net proceeds from this, and other FNRA banquets in Illinois will be used in Illinois and nationwide for shooting and educational programs. This program is second to none so get involved and get engaged!

Members of the Committee are eligible to participate in any raffles and auctions.  The auctioneer has the final authority, on auction items, for the amount and identity of the winning bidder. All sales are final. All local, state and federal laws will be enforced. Photographs may be taken during this event to help promote future Friends of NRA fundraising.
