“Treasures & Traditions” Charity Auction

on GunBroker.com Surpasses 3,000 Auction Mark

          The Hunting Heritage Trust’s “Treasures & Traditions” Charity Auction on GunBroker.com has surpassed the 3,000-auction mark on GunBroker.com, raising hundreds of thousands of dollars in support for America’s hunting and shooting sports heritage and earning an A-plus GunBroker.com rating in the process.

          The “Treasures & Traditions” Charity Auction on GunBroker was launched in 2007 and has featured a wide array of new and used firearms, books, artwork, knives and other hunting and shooting related items.

 “The “Treasures & Traditions” Charity Auction has developed into an effective fundraiser and a pleasure to coordinate” commented Bob Delfay, President of the Hunting Heritage Trust. “In addition to raising important funds in support of our hunting and shooting sports heritage, we’ve also made hundreds of great friends among our donors and buyers. We are now on a first-name basis with many of our supporters and even receive Christmas cards from some. We can’t thank www.GunBroker.com enough for their contributions to this effort,” Delfay said.

In 2015, the Trust announced an expansion of the “Treasures & Traditions” auction to include the auction of consigned items whereby the Trust will handle all details of the auction of firearms and other items for a consignment royalty of approximately 20 percent.

 One recent participant in the consignment auction shared her satisfaction with the Trust, stating, We were hoping to get $1,500 for our rifle, so when you suggested an optional “Buy Now” price of $2,500, we thought you were overly optimistic. Turns out, you were right and we almost underestimated the power of GunBroker.com.  Many thanks for getting us $1,000 more than we expected. ”
