As a staunch supporter of the Freedom Hunters military outreach program, Benelli is encouraging all outdoor sports enthusiasts and shooting industry members to participate in this year's Freedom Hunters online auction. This fundraising event is intended to help support Freedom Hunters' ongoing efforts to bring military members, veterans, and their families great outdoor adventures.
The online auction begins at 8:00 a.m. Eastern on September 18 and closes on September 22 at 2:00 p.m. Eastern. All proceeds from the auction will go to Freedom Hunters. Auction participants can go to the event page and register to buy or bid on the hundreds of items provided by the top manufacturers and service providers in the hunting, shooting sports, and outdoor recreation industries.
Freedom Hunters is a 501(c)3 organization established to support long-deployment U.S. service members, their families, Gold Star families, and wounded servicemen and servicewomen by taking them on memorable and often life-altering experiences. To date, Freedom Hunters has taken over 12,000 soldiers on dream hunts, fishing trips, and other outdoor adventures.
"For nine years, Benelli has been a proud and enthusiastic supporter and corporate sponsor of Freedom Hunters," said Tim Joseph, Vice President of Brand Marketing for Benelli. "We appreciate all the hard work the organization puts into this noble outreach program, as well as the support of the public and that of our fellow industry members whose participation in events like this help make it all happen."
"As lifelong outdoors enthusiasts," noted Benelli USA General Manager Tom DeBolt, "it is sometimes easy to forget the positive impact an outdoor adventure can have on those who may never have or who don't often get to go afield and enjoy quality outdoor recreation. We therefore encourage everyone who appreciates the outdoor lifestyle to support Freedom Hunters by participating in this year's online auction and help make a difference in the lives of those who have sacrificed so much for all of us."
