HAVA Golf Outing Raises $50,000 for Veterans

The annual pre-SHOT Show golf outing raised $50,000 last month, with the proceeds benefiting Honored American Veterans Afield (HAVA). HAVA is a 501(c)(3) organization formed by companies in the shooting and outdoor industry that raises money to support disabled veterans as they work through the healing process and reintegrate into civilian life through target shooting events, guided hunts and other outdoor sports-related activities.

The 6th Annual National Shooting Sports Foundation/HAVA Golf Classic took place Sunday, Jan. 19, two days before the official opening of the 2020 SHOT Show. The renowned Bear’s Best Las Vegas once again hosted the event.

One hundred and forty-six professionals from the firearm industry attended this year’s outing. Both individuals and four-person teams played the top-rated Jack Nicklaus-designed course. All entries included round-trip transportation from the Sands Expo Center to Bear’s Best, golf cart rental, course fees, course balls, breakfast and lunch. Awards were presented to team and individual winners after the event, and all players participated in a variety of contests and raffles that provided a chance at some great prizes—even if their game wasn’t quite up to par.

A variety of sponsors also contributed to the success of this year’s 18-hole outing. They include the Georgia Department of Economic Development, Veterans of Foreign Wars and industry icons SIG Sauer, Glock and Geissele Automatics.

“With 2020’s funds, the NSSF/HAVA Golf Tournament has raised more than $350,000 in the six years we’ve held this event before SHOT Show,” said Chris Dolnack, NSSF senior vice president and chief marketing officer. “It’s one small way we can thank our country’s veterans for doing all they can to protect America’s freedoms, and we extend our thanks to the event’s sponsors for helping us continue this tradition of fundraising through this outing.”
