The Scholastic Shooting Sports Foundation (SSSF) is the nation’s leader in youth development shooting sports programs.  The Kids and Clays Foundation supports a series of shooting events across the country with all proceeds benefiting Ronald McDonald House Charities.  All proceeds from this special two-day event will help each organization fulfill their mission.

“This event adds more excitement to our National Championships while also benefiting both organizations,” said Tom Wondrash, SCTP National Program Director.  “Although our missions are different, in the end, both organizations greatly benefit youth and families.  This makes our event a win-win across the board. This partnership is so significant to us that we designated Kids & Clays as our Charity of Choice last year and into the future.”

The Kids & Clays Foundation also sees great value in this partnership.

“We are certainly proud to work with such a highly respected organization that is making a great difference in the future of our shooting sports,” said Doug Jeanneret, Kids & Clays executive director. “This two-day shoot highlights the work of both our organizations while at the same time raising badly needed funds.  And as important, it is a really fun event for all participants.”

Top finishers in this registered event will be recognized with trophies.

All participants will be entered into a large drawing with over $10,000 in prizes including firearms, outdoor gear, gas grills and other great merchandise from companies such as Henry, Beretta, Browning, Lansky, Winchester Ammunition, Briley, Champion, Camp Chef, Alps Outdoorz, Hodgdon Powder Co., Girls with Guns, Otis Technology, and Allen.

A portion of the proceeds, through the Kids & Clays Foundation, benefit Ronald McDonald House Charities, who provide housing and other help to tens of thousands of critically ill children and their families across the country each year.

Proceeds will also benefit the SCTP’s scholarship program providing assistance to graduating high school seniors continuing their education in college.

Henry Repeating Arms Donates “One of Twenty” Big Boy .44 Magnum Edition Rifles to benefit Scholastic Clay Target Program

In observance of its 20th Anniversary in 2017, Henry Repeating Arms has created a superb, highly collectible “One of Twenty” Edition of its highly popular Big Boy .44 magnum lever action rifle. The “One of Twenty” Edition will feature hand-engraving, AAA-grade American Walnut, special “One of “Twenty” serial numbers and Presentation Walnut Display Cases.

Each of the “One of Twenty” Big Boys has been donated by Henry to an organization working in support of America’s hunting and shooting sports heritage. Each will be auctioned to provide important funding in support of hunting, shooting and conservation in America.

The rifle being auctioned here is Serial Number 20HENRY16 and 100% of auction proceeds will be donated to the Scholastic Shooting Sports Foundation’s Scholastic Clay Target Program. Serial Number 20HENRY16 will be auctioned on www.GunBroker.com from December 24, 2017 thru January 7, 2018.

“The SCTP/SSSF is very excited and honored to be part of this great support by Henry Repeating Arms, Gunbroker.com and The Hunting Heritage Trust” said Tom Wondrash, the Scholastic Clay Target Programs National Director. “SCTP is the Nation’s leader in the youth clay target shooting sports industry and a big part of the reason is because of groups like these that see and understand what we do! We are not just a youth shooting program, we are a youth development program. Thank you to these great supporters of our heritage and our youth and a special Thank You to Anthony Imperato and Henry for making this happen!

This handsome serial number 20HENRY16 is fully hand engraved just like the hand-engraved 20HENRY01 which recently auctioned on GunBroker.com for $25,225.00!

The engraving on this rifle is by the internationally-known and award-winning Baron Engraving of Trumbull, Connecticut. Baron has provided custom engraving services for most of America’s major firearm manufacturers and hunting and conservation organizations including the Ducks Unlimited, the National Wild Turkey Federation, the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation, National Rifle Association, U.S. Military Academy at West Point and many others. Baron has also designed and engraved more than 25 one-of-a-kind firearms for the official SHOT Show Auction.

Since 1997, Henry Repeating Arms has stood for quality, reliability and has provided award-winning customer service on a personalized level that sets the brand apart. Throughout its history, Henry Repeating Arms has had a steadfast and unwavering commitment to keeping its manufacturing operations in the United States and providing its customers with firearms that are “Made in America or Not Made at All.”

It’s their stories, their passion for Henry and shooting sports that continue to push us to be the best possible firearms manufacturer we can be.”

Supporting the shooting sports has always been at the core of Henry Repeating Arms’ DNA, so Imperato felt it would be fitting to continue that tradition as the company marks its 20th anniversary. Henry has partnered with the Hunting Heritage Trust to auction the  “One of Twenty” Anniversary Edition Big Boy .44 Magnum rifles with 100% of the proceeds going to non-profit organizations working to support hunting, shooting and wildlife conservation in America.

“The incredible, positive impact that these organizations have had on the shooting sports industry is immeasurable and we’re proud to have the opportunity to help fund their work for years to come,” added Imperato. “Collectors and Henry enthusiasts alike will be drawn to the intricate, hand-engraved details these rifles will feature, along with their extraordinary AAA grade American Walnut and special “One of Twenty” Edition serial numbers.”

All rifles in the “One of Twenty” Edition will come with the custom Henry Walnut Wall Display shown in the listing photographs.

The High Bidder for each “One of Twenty” rifle will receive a signed “Certificate of Authenticity” from Henry Repeating Arms President Anthony Imperato certifying that the rifle was one of only 20 produced in recognition of the company’s 20Th Anniversary was auctioned to raise funds in support of America’s hunting and shooting sports heritage and highlighting the organization that benefited from the auction.

Henry collectors estimate that the “One of Twenty” edition will raise in excess of $100,000.00 for programs in support of America’s hunting and shooting sports heritage.
