Friends of the NRA raises $9,200


The Haines chapter of the Friends of the National Rifle Association is entering its third year in the Haines Borough.

On Oct. 15, the chapter held its second annual fundraiser with a gun raffle in which the NRA supplied the rifles. The local chapter raised $9,200 for the Alaska organization, said Tim Holm, one of the local chapter’s leaders.

The nonprofit Friends of the NRA does not participate in the NRA’s political activities, Holm said. Instead, the chapter concentrates on gun education and safety classes.

“You don’t have to be a member to partake in this,” Holm said.
