The NRA is back in Dallas for the 2024 Annual Meetings & Exhibits, which means only one thing: Everything will be bigger and better than ever! To start, we’ve just learned this exciting news:
On behalf of the NRA Advancement team and NRA Women’s Leadership Forum (WLF) Gala & Auction Chair Carol Adams, we are thrilled to announce the Shoot Stars Over Texas Gala WLF's inaugural event for both ladies and gentlemen on Friday evening, May 17.
The WLF Gala & Auction, which this year combines WLF and ILA’s marquee fundraising events into one exciting new event, benefits the NRA Institute for Legislative Action (NRA ILA) during this critical election year.
But here’s why you must act quickly to purchase your ticket: FOX News Channel's Pete Hegseth has been announced as the keynote speaker for the evening. This event will be extremely popular and will sell out. Most people are familiar with Hegseth as co-host of FOX & Friends Weekend and as a FOX Nation host, where you’ll see him headlining FOX Nation’s coverage of major political events. But did you know he is also a No. 1 New York Times bestselling author and an Army combat veteran, having served as in Infantry Officer in the Army National Guard with tours in Afghanistan, Iraq and Guantanamo Bay? He holds two Bronze Stars and a Combat Infantryman Badge for his time in Iraq and Afghanistan. He has a bachelor's degree in politics from Princeton University and master's degree in public policy from Harvard University's John F. Kennedy School of Government (although in 2022 he famously mailed his degree back to Harvard!). Pete and his wife, Jenny, live in middle Tennessee and are parents to seven children—all of whom they pray grow up to love God and country.
The NRA Women’s Leadership Forum has officially launched these Leadership Opportunities and open Ticket Sales and are confident that with your help—and a fantastic keynote speaker—the Gala & Auction will be an undeniable success.
