OGDENSBURG, NY– The Frederic Remington Art Museum announces the winners of the Frederic Remington’s April Fool’s Day Ball raffle.

On April 1, 2018 the Museum held the biggest non-event of the season. In preparation, invitations had been mailed out encouraging donations,​ ​asking donors not to attend the April Fool’s Day Ball. As a result this year’s annual April Fool’s Day raised ​$3,025 ​ (and ​lots of smiles) in support of our mission to expand and deepen appreciation and understanding of Remington’s work by engaging contemporary audiences and keep his legacy relevant.

For every $25 contributed, donors were entered in a raffle of four prizes. The winners are as follows: Philip and Jillian Parks of Albuquerque, New Mexico won a small bronze reproduction on a wooden base of The Cheyenne; Sheila Cipriani of Ogdensburg won the book Icons of the West​: Frederic Remington’s Sculpture​ 2nd Edition by Michael D. Greenbaum, Geraldine Greller of Mastic Beach, NY won a Frederic Remington canvas print; and Douglas Steward of Royal Oak, Michigan won a one year Pioneer membership to the Frederic Remington Art Museum.​ Congratulations to these far flung true friends of the museum. ​ We are pleased to see that the winners reflect the wide geographical range of the museum’s friends and supporters. ​Let us know​ if you’re interested​, and we’ll be glad to invite you to next year’s non-event.​
