The Burns Middle School cheerleading squad is sponsoring a fun and unique fundraiser with flocks of pink flamingos scheduled to migrate to our community.
“These plastic pink flamingos travel in flocks of 12, 24, 36 and 60 and they love the opportunity to rest in beautiful yards in Daviess County,” said cheerleading sponsor Robin Ebelhar. “Burns Middle School cheerleaders have made an arrangement with these flamingos to have them stop in a yard near you. This is your chance to play a good old-fashioned prank on unsuspecting friends and family and help out the BMS cheerleaders at the same time. It’s a win-win!”
Donations of $10 will sponsor a small flock of 12 flamingos as they migrate to the lawn of your choice; $15 for a medium flock of 24 flamingos; $20 for a large flock of 36 flamingos; and $35 for a super flock of 60 flamingos. Birds will arrive discreetly and will remain in place for approximately 24 hours.
The person sending the flamingos may remain anonymous. The person receiving the flamingos will have the opportunity to request the flock’s migration to another location.
“Anti-flocking” insurance is also available for $10 for those who wish to guarantee that the birds will not land in their yard.
The flamingos will not migrate outside of Daviess County and will not roost on public property or in apartment complexes.
