Anvos, noted movie and television prop replica maker, is releasing a movie-accurate replica of Luke Skywalker’s ‘Red Five’ Rebel Pilot Helmet from the Battle of Yavin AKA the destruction of the Death Star.

BOSS StrongBox Raising Funds For Gold Star Teen Adventures

Monday, June 4th, 2018

BOSS StrongBox will be hosting an fundraiser raffle online with a goal to raise over $5,000 for Gold Star Teen Adventures; a non-profit whose mission is to provide healing, mentor-ship, development, and opportunity to the children of Special Operations Service Members who lost their lives in the line of duty.

Gold Star Teen Adventures was started by Kent Solheim, a Special Operations Service Member who was seriously wounded in combat in Iraq in 2007, ultimately losing his right leg. Kent’s experiences on his road to recovery inspired the creation of Gold Star Teen Adventures. Kent, a father of two, realized that if he had not made it home, he would have still wanted his children to know the brotherhood of the Special Operations community that he had grown to love, and to share the adventures that his career had permitted him to do.

BOSS StrongBox has teamed up with other leading brands to provide over 20 different prizes with a total retail value of over $5,000. Ranging from Pelican Cases to Streamlight TLR, Blac-Rac Weapon Retention Systems, Gerber Multi-Tools and more, there will be plenty of great prizes to win.

With raffle tickets selling for only $10 each, it won’t cost you much for a chance to win.

At the end of the day, it’s all about the cause and doing what we can to help support programs like Gold Star Teen Adventures and give back to the families who have served our country and ultimately gave their lives for our freedom.

The fundraiser starts June 1st and will run through the month, ending June 29th. You’ll want to follow along on Instagram (@BossStrongBox) to get updates and watch the live raffle take place at the end of the month (note: you won’t have to watch live to win, if you’re name is pulled we’ll contact you).

Cedarburg, WI – The SASP (Scholastic Action Shooting Program) announced today that TANDEMKROSS is a new Bronze Sponsor of their program in 2018!

“We are truly excited to be working with an organization like SASP that exclusively focuses on junior and youths in an academic environment and introduces them to the firearms sports and competition.

We’re very pleased to have them on board as a Bronze Sponsor this season!”

About TANDEMKROSS
When software developers Jake Wyman and Bryan Haaker experienced a bad day at the range filled with failure -to-feeds, stuck magazines and other issues, they knew there had to a be a simple fix. They took to the internet and found that while these problems were common for gun owners, solutions were hard to find.
Solutionists and innovators by nature, the longtime friends decided to try their hand at making firearm accessories that would enhance existing platforms. What started in 2012 with one part in a home office has since grown into a top tier brand in the rimfire competition market.

Today the TANDEMKROSS team continues to grow and innovate in their New Hampshire facility. For more information visit www.tandemkross.com.
