Fundraising banquet planned

ELKINS — The Roaring Creek Friends of the NRA will offer a fundraising banquet on Saturday, Oct. 30 at the Phil Gainer Community Center in Elkins.

“If you have ever hunted, participated in target shooting or shooting competitions, or if you own a gun for protection — the NRA has helped you — now it’s time to help the NRA,” a press release reads.

The purpose of this fundraising event is to help continue the future of shooting sports and defend your rights. “Half of the funds raised at this banquet will go to fund projects specifically in West Virginia; the other half will be used to defend your constitutional right to keep and bear arms,” the release states.

“The Roaring Creek Friends of the NRA is a newly formed chapter and this is our first fundraising event,” stated President Peggy Young Ross. “We are asking for our community to support us by attending our banquet. There is plenty of room in the PGCC and it will be a clean and safe environment.

“The Coalton Spaghetti Cookers will be serving their delicious homemade spaghetti and meatballs dinner; there will be a silent auction, a live auction, and various games played throughout the night with great prizes; and the WVU game will be aired if it is played during the banquet,” Ross said.

Doors will open at 5 p.m. and dinner will be served at 6:30 p.m. For more information, or to purchase tickets, contact Ross at 304-636-7764, 304-406-2111, at peggyb1119@yahoo.com or visit Friends of NRA – NRA Foundation. Click on events, click on WV, then click on Roaring Creek’s event.
