Michigan City, IN -(AmmoLand.com)- GunBroker.com, the world’s largest online auction site for firearms and accessories, has partnered with the Kids & Clays Foundation to support their national series of sporting clay events.
Proceeds from the events benefit Ronald McDonald House Charities, who provide housing and other help to tens of thousands of critically ill children and their families across the country each year.
“We are certainly very appreciative to be working with GunBroker.com to help raise funds vital to our mission,” said Bill Keyser, president of the Kids & Clays Foundation. “The people at GunBroker.com are making a large difference in the lives of countless families – many during their time of greatest need.”
Numerous companies and individuals, such as Henry Repeating Arms, Lew Horton Distributing, and Baron Technology, Inc. have participated in the Kids & Clays Firearm Donation program. GunBroker.com provides the best vehicle to turn these donations into funds to support causes such as Kids & Clays and Ronald McDonald Houses.
“We are honored to be working with Kids & Clays and their ultimate mission of helping children and their families when they need it the most,” said Jay Zwitter, GunBroker.com spokesman. “Our charity section is the perfect platform to help Kids & Clays raise the most funds possible from their cache of firearms, many of which are rare, unique, or one-of-a-kind. I’m excited for them as their auctions continue in the weeks and months to come.”
Included in upcoming Kids & Clays Foundation auctions are a number of unique and very rare firearms. Several firearms come from the private collection of Ed Rensi, former president of McDonalds Corporation. Those include:
