Online raffle for Warrior Appreciation Night benefits Legion Charities

One of the better events I attended last year was the SHOT show in Las Vegas.  The SHOT Show (Shooting, Hunting and Outdoor Trade Show) is sort of the Mecca for all things guns, and while I am not a huge "gun-guy" it really was awesome being around those people.  This year the Legion is a sponsor of the "Warrior Appreciation Night" again:

The American Legion is once again proud to be the presenting sponsor of the seventh annual Warrior Appreciation Night (WAN) on Jan. 16 in Las Vegas during the week of the "SHOT Show" (Shooting, Hunting and Outdoor Trade Show). As a sponsor of the premier event, the Legion is one of seven veterans and law enforcement support charities who will receive 100 percent of donations collected from an online raffle.

The United States Practical Shooting Association (USPSA) is hosting the raffle on its website, Those interested in participating in the raffle can purchase raffle tickets for $10 apiece, and select the charity that they want their raffle donations to benefit. Each raffle package includes a custom rifle, shotgun and pistol, as well as other outdoor sports items. Participants don’t need to be present at the WAN event to win.

USPSA will present The American Legion with 100 percent of donations collected from the online raffle at the WAN event in January. The donations will go toward Legion programs.

The highlight for me last year was getting to meet Medal of Honor recipient Jon Caviani, who was as humble as all the other recipients I have met, but also one of the friendliest people I ever met.  Just a great guy.  I watched a good video of him the other day as well:

You can get some nice pieces from the raffle:

  •   Remington Versa Max Tactical
  •  Caracal CP661 9mm
  •   Black Rain Ordnance AR
  •   Otis 3-gun cleaning kit
