    Don’t miss the 13th annual Santa Barbara Friends of NRA Fundraising Banquet on June 6th at the Santa Barbara Elks Lodge and remember, the Early Bird deadline is May 6th!  If you’ve already purchased tickets, thank you; you will receive an online confirmation.2015 was a good year for the Santa Barbara FNRA Chapter with another record take!  The year was an excellent year for grant applications with over $910,000 in grant money spread out amongst 65 qualifying grant applications!
    For two years in a row, we have achieved the outstanding status of being qualifying as an elite member of the High Caliber Club!!! I want to thank you all profusely for your hard work and support in 2014 to help us achieve this hard earned benchmark. 

    One of the perks of being a member of this elite club is the opportunity to present special auction items to our event attendees.  This year, that item will be a Special Edition of the Original Henry Rifle! This wonderful piece was made especially for FNRA.


    It is my goal to earn the status of High Caliber Club for our chapter once again! Our community has what it takes to do this, but I need your continued support!

    I’d like to welcome Goodland Guns and Shooters Supply to the FNRA community!  This is one of the newer gun stores in the area.  Dan Ashton, who runs the shop, is a supporter of our chapter and will serve as FFL for the 2015 event.  I look forward to Goodland’s participation this year! Welcome aboard Dan!

    ~ Auction item contest is on~ We are in dire need of both live and silent items for the June 6th event. To help facilitate this, we are running a contest to see who can bring in the most items! How do you do this? Ask people in your community for a donation of their services or goods to donate. Do you know anyone who owns a company? Where do you get your hair cut, go to get your car washed, get a massage or buy hunting supplies? Do you have any unused gift certificates or gifts you’ve never used?  What restaurants do you frequent?  Almost everyone you come in contact with is a potential donor.


    We have FNRA Donor forms to provide to anyone who makes a donation for tax purposes. You do not need to be a member to participate in this contest.  Have fun collecting items while providing some much needed help!


    Here’s a sneak peek at some of the exclusive NRA logo items that guests will win in our raffles:

    Sun Welding Gun Safe with a mystery gun inside!

    Special prize drawing * Tickets are $20 each or 3 for $50! * Only 300 Tickets will be sold!

    2 Gun Drawing

    $20 each * Only 300 tickets will be sold!

    Please join us at our dinner on June 6th.  Consider donating a little extra to underwrite our efforts and support our work right here in California. I am depending on your continued support.


    Warm regards,


    Ms. Georgi D. Rice
