Leading lever-action firearm manufacturer Henry Repeating Arms raised $36,400 for the family of Danica Brianne Mulholland through its latest “Guns For Great Causes” campaign. After losing their 12-year-old daughter to a three-year battle with brain cancer, the Levittown, PA, family is receiving a check from the sale of 50 Henry Golden Boy lever-action rifles to assist with any outstanding medical and funeral expenses.
Danica was undergoing treatment for a grade IV medulloblastoma when Henry Repeating Arms CEO and Founder Anthony Imperato jumped at the opportunity to assist the family through the company’s charitable branch, Guns for Great Causes. Henry Repeating Arms donated all the rifles, and Baron Engraving of Trumbull, Conn., donated its services to create the engraved artwork in tribute to Danica’s life. The “Danica Strong” edition rifles sold out within two hours of the initial release announcement, and auctions of the first and last serial numbers brought in an additional $4,000. Since 2020, the program has distributed more than $325,000 to individual families of sick children.
“Danica’s memory will live on in all of us at Henry,” said Anthony Imperato. “Her tenacity, grace, and unending kindness for those around her is something everyone can learn from and keep with them. My sincerest thanks to all who choose to support our Guns for Great Causes mission.”
On top of these individual campaigns for sick children, and in celebration of its 25th anniversary this year, Henry Repeating Arms is highlighting its charitable endeavors with a $1 million pledge to benefit several different categories from children’s hospitals, organizations supporting military veterans, first responders, law enforcement, wildlife conservation, and hunting and shooting sports education. Some of the most recent beneficiaries of the effort include the Veterans of Foreign Wars and the Tunnel to Towers Foundation.
