BOSTON BENEFIT BIG SUCCESS
Yesterday, Wednesday April 13th, 2016, was the Ducks Unlimited Boston Benefit Dinner. With record attendance, the benefit made enough money to save around 2,000 acres of wetlands. Mr. DeVito exhibited and sold his work, while attendees enjoyed a silent and live auction and an exclusive dinner.
The Boston Chapter of Ducks Unlimited has been working to create a Sponsorship Program for Massachusetts, which calls on an artist to paint a hunting scene that will promote membership through the use of the reproduced image. This program has been successfully employed on Long Island through Mr. DeVito's last fourteen Ducks Unlimited paintings.
