"Lew has been involved with Spartanburg, South Carolina Friends of NRA for at least five years. Partly due to Lew's involvement, Spartanburg Friends of NRA has had South Carolina's largest event in attendance, gross proceeds, and net proceeds for both 2020 and 2021.
Lew Milliner Jr. is a Captain for American Airlines. Lew is also an avid Second Amendment supporter and loves to go shooting any chance he gets. He volunteers his time throughout the year for Spartanburg Friends of NRA and never stops. Lew is always the first person to volunteer to go gun shows where he promotes the event or sells pre-event raffle tickets. Each year, Lew is the top, or tied for top, seller on the committee for sponsor tables and obtains the most donations for the committee. As a result, the Spartanburg Friends of NRA event in 2020 had an attendance of 242 with net proceeds over $48,920. This was the highest accomplishment for this committee at the time. Then in 2021, the event saw 265 in attendance with net proceeds over $52,780. This was the third year in a row of breaking the previous record!
Lew is an essential member of the Spartanburg Friends of NRA committee. Since his arrival, the event has improved in attendance and net proceeds each year. Lew is always coming up with new ways to spread word about the Friends of NRA program. Not only is he a "dream volunteer" to work with, but I value his friendship at the highest level. I will always appreciate what Lew Milliner Jr. has meant to Spartanburg Friends of NRA."
