Guyette & Deeter Hosts Online Decoy Auction to Benefit Waterfowl Festival
We are pleased to announce that the Waterfowl Festival is offering a unique “Waterfowl Festival 50th Anniversary Collection” of decoys for sale via virtual auction, starting on Friday, April 16. We selected our longtime partner and nationally-known auction firm, Guyette & Deeter, to manage the sale in support of our 50th year.
This collection, graciously donated to us by the Honorable Nicholas F. Brady, former United States Secretary of the Treasury, in 2012, includes a variety of species of ducks, geese, swan, several full rigs and some songbirds by carvers such as Ira Hudson, Roe Terry, R. Madison Mitchell, James T. & John “Daddy” Holly and many others. Each decoy purchase will come with a custom ribbon to mark your support for our golden anniversary!
Thanks to Guyette & Deeter’s generous pro-bono services, all proceeds from the sale will benefit our support of waterfowl conservation projects, wildlife art and sporting heritage. It will also help us bring you the best possible Waterfowl Festival weekend, November 12-14, 2021.
We are grateful to Guyette & Deeter for their professional expertise in making this sale possible. And thank YOU for your continued support of the Waterfowl Festival and our mission!
