A Flock of Freaky Flamingos
We are conducting our flamingo fundraiser again this year: A Flock of Freaky Flamingos. We have 12 black skeleton flamingos ready to roost in the yards of family & friends across Tazewell in order to raise money to support our work to eliminate domestic violence.
If the flamingos end up in your front yard, you may choose to pay $10.00 to send the flock to their next home or you may choose to not participate. Either way, our staff will return within 24 hours to remove the freaky flamingos from your yard.
Attached to this email is a flyer & order form. #getyourflockon
