Each year, the Ward Museum raffles a special decoy to benefit the Ward Foundation, the nonprofit that runs the Ward Museum of Wildfowl Art, Salisbury University. Traditionally, the decoy used in the raffle is a Ward brothers carving, but this year, we have two beautiful decoys by Oliver “Tuts” Lawson. The winning ticket for the red-breasted merganser pair, and the tickets for second and third prize, will be pulled during the annual Ward World Championship this April. Tickets can be purchased in-person at the Ward Museum’s gift shop – Treetops Gifts – or over the phone by calling (410) 742-4988 ext. 120.
