The Three Rivers Friends of the NRA Banquet and Auction is scheduled for Friday, Feb. 21 at Emporia’s Golden Leaf Commons.

This event includes a steak dinner, a live auction plus a variety of games and raffles featuring limited edition firearms, knives, jewelry and home décor. Proceeds from this event benefit youth shooting sports including the Greensville/Emporia 4-H Shooting Education Club. Annually, 4-H shooting clubs around the state receive firearms, ammunition and targets to train youth in firearm safety and marksmanship.

As a result, 4-H members have an opportunity to participate and compete in a variety of shooting disciplines including Archery, Rifle, Pistol and Shotgun.
