Henry Repeating Arms is turning 25 this year, making this the silver anniversary for the manufacturer of the storied Golden Boy. As we've reported here before, the company has pledged $1,000,000 to charity through its Guns For Great Causes program. The latest awardee is a great cause indeed: the Veterans of Foreign Wars, which just celebrated its 123rd "birthday" at the VFW National Convention in Kansas City. There, company president Andy Wickstrom presented a $50,000 check to VFW Commander-In-Chief Matthew M. “Fritz” Mihelcic.

Guns For Great Causes is the brainchild of Henry Repeating Arms CEO and Founder Anthony Imperato, and we've chronicled many of its previous charitable acts (you can read them here ... there's no shame in a few tears). You'll notice that every time Henry offers a limited-edition rifle to fund these donations, they sell out immediately. This time will be no different: A limited-edition Golden Boy Silver Anniversary edition rifle will be available online in the coming weeks, with 100% of the proceeds benefitting the charities supported by the Guns For Great Causes campaign. To be notified when this limited-edition rifle becomes available, visit Henry Repeating Arms online and sign up for the e-mail newsletter.

“Henry Repeating Arms has been a longtime supporter of organizations that take care of our veterans, and no one does that better than the VFW,” said Wickstrom to the assembled members. This isn't Henry's first donation to the organization; in 2016 Henry worked with the VFW to create a fundraising program to generate funds on a national level while giving individual VFW chapters the chance to enhance their fundraising efforts. Other direct monetary contributions to the organization now total more than $150,000. Wickstrom continued, “We believe in the VFW’s mission and vision and respect its extraordinary accomplishments.”
