The 10th Annual NRA-ILA Dinner & Auction

posted on April 5, 2016

At this year’s NRA Annual Meetings & Exhibits, Kimber will present the 10th annual NRA-ILA Dinner and Auction in the Grand Ballroom of the Galt House Hotel in Louisville, Ky. This highly anticipated event, scheduled for Friday, May 20, at 6 p.m., will attract celebrities, industry executives and a host of Second Amendment supporters from around the country, and will provide direct support for NRA’s legislative, legal and political efforts.

This year’s event will feature some impressive, one-of-a-kind items made and donated just for the auction, including engraved firearms, suppressors, knives, fine art, hunts, optics and trips around the globe. The top featured item in the live auction is a custom Orange County Choppers Trike, which has been donated by Pell Industrial. Truly a showpiece that would make anyone in Sturgis jealous, this Trike even comes with a leather scabbard housing a matching Henry Big Boy rifle in .44 Mag., finished by Baron Engraving. Available for auction in advance of the NRA Annual Meetings, interested parties may bid through or in person as the auction will close live at the NRA-ILA Dinner. 

Tickets are $500 for an individual and $5,000 for a table. With limited tickets available, this event is expected to sell out.
