Talk of the Town Auction Hall
Ballston Spa, NY
For the past twenty years the New York State 4-H Shooting Sports Program has grown thanks to the over 300 friends who gather annually for our major fundraising event to support our program and our numerous 4-H participants and Certified Volunteer Instructors. The annual event enabled our program to grow to over 41,000 youth participants in nearly 40 New York counties in 2019. 4-H Shooting Sports is considered the largest multi-disciplinary youth shooting programs in our state.
2020 started normally as our leadership team received outstanding support both within the state and across the country as we prepared our 21st Annual Banquet & Auction originally planned for April in Lake George, NY. Then, the Covid-19 pandemic struck and we postponed our event in hopes it could be held later this year. However, due to attendance restrictions and density limits our regular annual event for 2020 was canceled.
Instead for 2020, we held a major Sportsman's Auction to benefit NYS 4-H Shooting Sports was held on Thursday October 15th at the Talk of the Town Auction Hall, a licensed FFL dealer, in Ballston Spa, NY. WE had over 300 lots available featuring new and pre-owned firearms including a wide selection of rifles, shotguns, and handguns as well as original artwork and collectible prints from recent 4-H Artists of the Year, ammunition, binoculars, rangefinders, and scopes for firearms. The auction included a large selection of knives, American flags, firewood, maple syrup, gift certificates, the legendary "Tackle Boxes of Dreams", and so much more. The event was a huge success, raising money needed to fund the 2021 4-H Shooting Sports program. With the future uncertain, events may look a little different, but we will continue them. Be sure to stay tuned for event announcements because we can't do it without you. Donations are always welcome.
Finally, we say a giant "THANK YOU" to all those who supported this year's event with your donations and purchases.
