INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – The National Rifle Association’s 148th Annual Meetings and Exhibits will have its unofficial start at the 2019 National NRA Foundation BBQ & Auction at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis, Ind., on Thursday, April 25, at 5:00 p.m. Funds raised at the attendee-favorite event sponsored by Henry Repeating Arms, Kimber and Century Arms—with a pre-event reception at 4 p.m. sponsored by SIG SAUER—benefit The NRA Foundation, America’s leading charitable organization in support of the shooting sports.

“This is a tremendous year for the Foundation,” said NRA Director of Volunteer Fundraising Sarah Engeset. “We couldn’t be more excited with our sponsor line-up. It is because of their support and the tireless work of our volunteers that we are able to continue our mission of Teaching Freedom.”

Event activities will include games and silent and live auctions for exotic hunts, exclusive firearms, outdoor gear and other unique merchandise. One of this year’s live auction showcase items is an Original Henry Deluxe Engraved .44-40 Rifle. This unique rifle is one of only a thousand produced and is perfect for any hunter or collector.
