Henry Donation Raises over $100,000 for Firearms Industry Organizations
Henry celebrated their 20th anniversary as an American firearms manufacturer in 2017 and built a limited edition series of twenty commemorative rifles. All of the guns were donated by Henry Repeating Arms to various organizations working to support hunting, shooting sports, firearms safety, the 2nd Amendment and wildlife conservation to be auctioned off for fundraising. The firearms have raised $109,731 with one rifle still left in the series.
Henry president Anthony Imperato says, “Henry has a long track record of supporting these organizations that work so hard to protect the shooting sports, so I’m proud of what we could accomplish to celebrate our 20th Anniversary. They have all done so much to protect our uniquely American traditions, and we will always have their backs.”
Serial number 1 of the 20th Anniversary rifles sold at auction for over $25,000 to benefit the Hunting Heritage Trust. Other organizations that were donated a gun for fundraising include the Association of Fish & Wildlife Agencies, Back Country Hunters & Anglers, Boone and Crockett Club, Congressional Sportsmen’s Foundation, Dallas Safari Club, Ducks Unlimited, International Hunter Education Association, Kids & Clays, Mule Deer Foundation, National Rifle Association, National Wild Turkey Federation, Project ChildSafe Foundation, Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation, Safari Club International Foundation, USA Shooting, Wildlife Management Institute and the Youth Shooting Sports Alliance.
