The 2017 Region Volunteers of the Year

Each year outstanding Friends of NRA volunteers are recognized for their efforts by being selected by their area field representatives as the area volunteers of the year. From the area volunteers, one from each region is selected as the Region Volunteer of the Year. These select few are given the opportunity to attend the  NRA Annual Meetings and Exhibits to be honored at the National NRA Foundation Banquet. Combined, this year’s volunteers have over 60 years of experience and raised nearly $500,000 for The NRA Foundation in 2017 alone.

Since its inception in 1999 the Fall of the Ohio Friends of NRA committee has raised over 1.6 million dollars for The NRA Foundation. Their 2017 banquet had 1000 attendees. Collectively between their banquet and a special event they raised more than $225,000. This lands the Fall of the Ohio Committee as the top grossing Friends of NRA committee for 2017.
