The Gun Club of America (GCA), along with the American Gunsmithing Institute (AGI), presented a check for $13,049.50 to GCA’s charity of the year, The Pathway Home. The Pathway Home is a nonprofit, residential recovery center to treat veterans of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan who are suffering from post-traumatic stress or traumatic brain injury. The Pathway Home relies on donations to serve our veterans and their families. The home receives no funding from the government.
GCA raised the money from the sales of raffle and auction tickets and through attendance fees of their fourth annual Gunstock event held in Nevada in June 2012. The yearly event brings together Master Gunsmiths, instructors from AGI, and GCA members for three days of firearms training, clinics, and seminars. Vendors and manufacturers were on hand at the event for live, hands-on demonstrations of products.
Gene Kelly, GCA and AGI president says, “The Gun Club of America and AGI are thrilled that we could raise money and awareness for this worthy cause. We are very fortunate to have such great members. We are pleased to announce that these great men and women donated thousands of dollars toward treating the veterans in the Pathway Home program. We also had a great number of wonderful vendors who helped to support this cause and we wish to thank them as well.” To become a member of the GCA, visit their website.
