Thanks to all our readers who came out to the Friends’ dinner tonight. Our table was very lucky, since I think we had two raffle winners sitting at it. For the size of the dinner, and for a first year dinner, we did very well. More than $5000 raised for the NRA Foundation, $2500 of which will stay in Pennsylvania shooting programs. Hopefully next year we’ll top 100 people, and even more.
Many thanks to reader Adam Z. who walked away with a very expensive NRA toaster. It’s for a good cause. Many thanks to our friends at Great Satan Inc, who’s ticket gift helped us sell a few more when we really needed to fill seats. We had a little over 80 folks, but they were folks willing to spend money. Despite the fact that I’m out of work, I put 200 of my own dollars into the tickets, games, and silent auction. I think it’s a good cause.
