2013 NRA Women's Leadership Forum Luncheon & Auction Raises $1.2 Million

On Friday, May 3, 2013, over 500 women gathered for the Seventh Annual NRA Women's Leadership Forum Luncheon & Auction in Houston, Texas. Hosted by Luncheon Co-Chairs Gaye Kelsey and Melanie Pepper, the record-breaking event featured a keynote address by Sean Hannity and a live and silent auction. Forum Co-Chairs Susan LaPierre and Suzie Brewster presented the program focusing on the event's "New Energy" theme, honoring new members of the Forum with their gold brooches and recognizing 2013 Sybil Luddington Award Winner, Janet Nyce. Thanks to the generous matching gift challenge made by Sally Clark, Bill Hober, Hornady Manufacturing, Donna and Eric Johanson, Gaye Kelsey, Susan Kriley, Laser Shot, Michael Luzich (in honor of his mother, Carol), Melanie Pepper, and Angie and Bryan Tucker, plus a number of sponsors and the generous auction bids made by guests, this event raised over $1.2 million for the NRA.
