One thing many of us attending SHOT Show® look forward to is a break from Old Man Winter and his wrath of snow, ice and chilly temps. Even if you live in another 365-sunshine-friendly location, Vegas is still a destination for dozens of reasons, not the least of which is the annual NSSF/HAVA Golf Classic.
HAVA, Honored American Veterans Afield, is a 501(c)(3) organization formed by companies in the shooting and outdoor industry. The NSSF/HAVA Golf Classic, now in its sixth year in 2020, raises money to support disabled veterans as they work through the healing process and reintegrate into civilian life through guided hunts, target shooting events and other outdoor sports activities.
The 6th Annual NSSF/HAVA Golf Classic takes place Sunday, Jan. 19, two days before the official opening of the 2020 SHOT Show. The renowned Bear’s Best Las Vegas, a top-rated, Jack Nicklaus-designed course, will once again host this tremendously popular SHOT Week event, one that’s tailor-made to provide networking, entertainment and a great way to kick off the show for those arriving early to Las Vegas before Industry Day at the Range, SHOT UniversityTM and Supplier Showcase.
Registration is open and participation slots are still available, though selling quickly as we get closer to SHOT Show. Individuals may participate with an entry fee of $200, and if you grab some friends and colleagues and enter a foursome, we’ll take off one of those registration fees (foursomes are just $600). All entries include round-trip transportation from the Sands Expo Center to Bear’s Best, golf cart rental, course fees, course balls, breakfast and lunch. Awards will be presented for high team and individuals when everyone’s finished their 18 holes, and this year a variety of contests and raffles will offer everyone a chance at some truly exceptional prizes. Don’t miss out—we’re looking to raise at least $50,000 for our honored American veterans.
Sponsorship opportunities are available for this event. To discover how sponsoring the NSSF/HAVA Golf Classic can benefit both you and our veterans, contact Chris Tatulli, NSSF Director, Exhibit & Sponsorship Sales, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 203-426-1320 ext. 214.
