NSSF Opens Registration for 2nd Annual HAVA Golf Classic
We are very pleased and proud to announce that registration is now open for the 2nd Annual NSSF/HAVA Golf Classic. Organized to support Honored American Veterans Afield (HAVA), this pre-SHOT Show outing is a charity event that raises money to support disabled veterans with their healing process through guided hunts, target shooting events and other outdoor sports activities.
HAVA is our industry’s best statement of veteran support, and we at NSSF are proud to walk with the industry volunteers who quarterback this critical program to repay part of our nation’s debt to the heroes to whom we owe so much. Twenty-one of our member companies are HAVA Sustaining Sponsors, and dozens more offer other substantial support. Hosting an industry golf outing in conjunction with the SHOT Show in order to raise money that helps wounded veterans reconnect with their families is something everyone in our industry can get behind.
“We’re encouraging teams to enter from all of the NSSF-member companies and are running a special one-free-with-three offer to solicit teams to carry their company’s message of support for the disabled veterans and injured active military that HAVA serves,” said HAVA Chairman Tom Taylor in a press release from the organization’s public relations firm, Media Direct Creative Group, Inc. “Our industry has supported HAVA’s goals for years, and sending a foursome of employees to the golf classic is a good way to reinforce that commitment. We believe that the service of veterans is one of the primary things that binds our industry together, and HAVA is proud to be taking point for the shooting sports companies’ statement of veteran support.”
The 2016 2nd Annual NSSF/HAVA Golf Classic will be held Sunday, January 17, two days before the opening of the 2016 SHOT Show. Bear’s Best Country Club on Flamingo Road in Las Vegas will be the host course for the event, which kicks off with an 8 a.m. shotgun start. Registration is open for individuals and four-member firearms industry teams. Individual entries are $200, while four-person team entries are $600. All entries include transportation to and from the outing, golf cart rental, course fees, course balls, breakfast, lunch and participant gifts. Prizes will be awarded for high team and individuals at the event’s conclusion. For more information and to register for this important event, visit www.shotshow.org/golf.
