Vortex announced their new Razor HD Gen III 1-10x FFP scope (MSRP = $2899) in the run-up to the SHOT Show. Now one of the first of the new optics is being auctioned off to benefit Fischer House, the charity that helps military families be close to loved ones while they’re in the hospital, among other services.
One-of-a-kind Vortex® Razor® HD Gen III 1-10x to be auctioned, benefiting Fisher House Foundation
Since its January 2020 announcement, the Vortex Optics Razor® HD Gen III 1-10x FFP has been a hot topic of conversation within the shooting industry. While not officially available until April, one generous bidder can get their hands on a Razor® HD Gen III FFP before the official release, all while benefiting a worthy cause.
From Monday, February 17 at 3 p.m. central time, to Monday, February 24, at midnight central time, GunsAmerica will host an auction for a one-of-a-kind Razor® HD Gen III 1-10x FFP with custom packaging, with 100% of the final bid donated to Fisher House Foundation, an organization dedicated to keeping veterans and their families together when it matters most.
Since 1990, Fisher House Foundation has helped more than 400,000 military and veterans’ families, saving them more than $451 million. Dave Coker, President of Fisher House Foundation, said, “Fisher House Foundation thanks Vortex Optics for its continued support. Their support continues to help bring military families together at a critical time – when loved ones are receiving care in VA and military hospitals.”
While Fisher House Foundation’s main mission is to build comfort homes where military and veterans’ families can stay free of charge while a loved one is in the hospital, the Foundation goes even farther, providing more than 12,000 students in military families with more than $24 million in scholarships and giving over 70,000 airline tickets to the families of veterans and active duty military so they can be near their loved ones during medical treatment.
Vortex® has worked with Fisher House Foundation in the past, and they are thrilled to have the opportunity to try something new in service to the Foundation. “The charity auction format is one we’ve been wanting to do for some time, but needed just the right product – we knew the Razor® HD Gen III 1-10x FFP was the right choice,” said Jimmy Hamilton, Chief Media Ambassador at Vortex Optics. “This new optic will be capable of accomplishing some amazing things in the hands of recreational, competitive, and professional shooters. But first, we look forward to it doing amazing things for our nation’s veterans and their families.” Check out this quick video to learn more about the auction.
