Firearm Manufacturer's Donation Raises Over $47,000 For 3-Year-Old Battling Leukemia

Firearm Manufacturer's Donation Raises Over $47,000 For 3-Year-Old Battling Leukemia

PR Newswire

RICE LAKE, Wis., Oct. 26, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- The leading lever-action firearms manufacturer, Henry Repeating Arms, donated a series of 65 custom rifles that raised a total of $47,040 to benefit the family of 3-year-old Preslie Mantsch from Iron River, Michigan. Preslie was diagnosed with B-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) in April of this year and still has two years of treatment left. All proceeds from the sales and auctions of the rifles are being presented to the Mantsch family to assist with the medical expenses associated with childhood leukemia.

The "Prayers For Preslie" Edition Golden Boy Silver rifles were created under Henry Repeating Arms' Guns For Great Causes banner, a charitable branch of the company that focuses on raising money through firearm donations for individual sick children, children's hospitals, veterans' organizations, shooting sports preservation, and wildlife conservation efforts. So far this year, the company has raised over $175,000 for individual families of sick children and presented Shriners International with a $52,500 check to assist with their philanthropic efforts with the renowned Shriners Children's Hospitals.

The rifles, which sold for $620 each, sold out within a matter of hours after Henry's initial announcement. The first and last serial numbers in the series were put up for auction and pulled in an additional $6,525 and $2,075, respectively.

Anthony Imperato, President and Owner of Henry Repeating Arms says, "With Preslie's father being a frontline medical worker in their community's fire and ambulance departments, I just can't imagine the struggle this family has been through so far this year." Imperato continues, "I want to personally thank everyone who chose to support this family with the purchase of a rifle, and I look forward to seeing little Preslie conquer her road to remission. We're all rooting for her."

Henry rifles and shotguns can only be purchased through a licensed firearms dealer. For more information about Henry Repeating Arms and its products, visit henryusa.com or call 866-200-2354.
