Benelli USA Named Friends of NRA TV Sponsor



Fairfax, VA— The NRA Foundation is proud to announce its partnership with Benelli USA as a Sharpshooter Sponsor for the Friends of NRA TV show.

Presented by Brunton, Friends of NRA airs Sundays at 10:00 PM EST on the Outdoor Channel. Hosted by retired Major League Baseball player Matt Duff and professional shooter Jessie Harrison, the show follows the two as they travel across the United States to explore the history and impact of the multi-million dollar grassroots fund-raising program Friends of NRA.

“Since Benelli USA’s creation in 1997, we have profoundly appreciated the work and accomplishments of NRA,” said Jason Evans, Vice President of Sales at Benelli USA. “The protection of individual freedoms is a very important part of our corporate and personal duties; the best avenue to ensure these rights remain strong and unwavering is support of the Friends of NRA. They are an organization which will protect all Americans and their rights, now and into the future.”

Along with Sharpshooter Sponsor status, Benelli USA is also the exclusive shotgun sponsor of the Friends of NRA television show and manufacturer of the 2012 Friends of NRA Gun of the Year – an Ultra Light 12GA shotgun.

“We are proud to welcome the Benelli Ultra Light 12GA shotgun as the Friends of NRA Gun of the Year and excited to have Benelli USA as a member of the Friends of NRA family,” said Kyle Weaver, Managing Director of NRA’s Field Operations Division. “The quality of their products will be demonstrated on Friends of NRA and will generate further interest in both their products and our program.”
