The Grand Canyon Friends of the NRA put on its annual dinner July 20 and raised about $44,000.

"Our fundraiser provides financial support for the shooting sports and youth shooting and women shooting in Arizona," said Chuck Corcoran, chairman for the Grand Canyon Chapter of the Friends of NRA.

About 160 people attended the dinner at Doc Holliday's Steakhouse, where the Grand Canyon Friends of the NRA raffled off or gave away 34 guns.

The fundraiser included live and silent auctions, games and raffles. Besides the firearms, attendees entered to win knives, artwork, jewelry, camping gear, hunting equipment and reloading equipment.

"Everything that a shooter or his wife would like," Corcoran said.

Tom Kennelly of Doc Holliday's Steakhouse, Larry Pittinger of LP's Excavating, Mark and Cheryl Fry of Fry's Automotive in Flagstaff, and local resident Jim Lewis bought corporate tables for the event.

The Grand Canyon Friends of the NRA has about 18 committee members. Last year, the organization donated more than $280,000 to programs within Arizona.

In the past, the organization has donated to the Coconino High School air gun program, the Boy Scouts of America Camp Raymond Shotgun Range, the Northern Arizona Shooting Range, Reserve Officers' Training Corps programs, the Eddie Eagle youth gun safety program, and Women on Target, a women's firearm training program.

Next year's banquet is planned for August 2, 2014.
