Albany- More than a hundred items were up for bid at the Friends of the NRA auction in Albany. The once a year banquet and auction made the Albany Chapter of the FNRA the number one revenue fundraiser in Georgia for 2004.
The event brought in $15,000. This year they hope to raise at least $20,000 for children's sports.
"We support any group that has an organized youth shooting program, like the Boy Scouts, ROTC, and 4-H," said Lan Skalla, FNRA Co-Chairman.
Among the items auctioned off were several one of a kind rifles, knives, paintings and a one of a kind picture from the trail plane following the Enola Gay when it dropped the atomic bomb over Hiroshima.
