The Lee County Friends of NRA will hold a banquet/auction at 6 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 1, at the Sanford Elks Lodge. Tickets or sponsor packages may be purchased by calling (919) 770-5343 or online at www.friendsofnra.org.

Half of the money raised by this event will be spent in eastern N.C. on qualifying programs and the other half will support national programs.

The Lee County Youth Hunter Safety Teams representing the seven local middle and high schools in this county have received grants in the past and hope to again this year.

Much of the merchandise at the banquets is donated or provided at reduced cost by local participating vendors.
