Henry Raises More Than

Henry Repeating Arms’ donation of 65 custom “Support 4 Sami” rifles has raised a total of $46,700, funds that will benefit the family of 11-year-old Sami Bernadzikowski of Elkridge, MD. The money will provide financial relief for medical expenses incurred throughout her treatment for multiple congenital heart defects, which already includes five open-heart surgeries and more than 30 catheterization procedures.

The “Support 4 Sami” Golden Boy Silver lever-action rifles are a continuation of Henry Repeating Arms’ Guns For Great Causes program, which is a charitable arm of the company that focuses on raising funds through firearm donations for individual sick children, children’s hospitals, active-duty military and veterans organizations, wildlife and habitat conservation efforts, and supporting other Henry partners. The program has raised more than a quarter million dollars for six families over the past two years.

“Time and time again, the Henry family steps up to the plate and knocks it out of the park with their unending generosity to help us with these Guns For Great Causes initiatives,” said Anthony Imperato, CEO and Founder of Henry Repeating Arms. “To those of you who purchased one of these rifles or offered your support in some other way, I thank you for giving Sami another reason to show off that big smile.”

The rifles, which were priced at $650 each, sold out in less than 24 hours after the initial announcement of their availability. The first and last serial numbers went to an online auction block, and the hammer fell at $2,725 and $3,025, respectively.

In July the company’s Guns For Great Causes program raised $30,000 to help the family of an eight-year-old boy in Texas, suffering from Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD), a rare and terminal genetic muscle-wasting disease with no known cure.
