Everyone in East Feliciana Parish is invited to “get their flock on” and help Slaughter Community Charter School’s Knights baseball team pay for much-needed practice equipment by participating in the first-ever Flamingo Flocking fundraiser.
For a $25 donation, participants can send a flock of pink flamingos to any yard within the parish, where they’ll roost for a minimum of 24 hours, event sponsor Katie LeDoux said.
The resident whose yard has been flocked with 25 pink plastic flamingos can then pay to have another yard flocked for $25 and so on to help the Knights raise funds.
“If a resident chooses not to flock another yard, the flamingos will be picked up and taken back to their home at Slaughter Charter for safekeeping until the next order is received,” LeDoux said.
A brief explanation describing the fundraiser will be placed around the neck of one of the flamingos in each yard along with an order form for residents to flock a yard of their choosing.
SCCS students are invited to participate by flocking their teachers’ classrooms or offices for a $15 donation.
Area business can get in on the fun by ordering a full flock of 47 flamingos with yard signs to appear at their location for $100 a day, LeDoux said.
Additional order forms are available at the SCCS front office, 2944 La. 412 West, Slaughter.
Forms also are available on the school’s website at thesccs.org, its Facebook page or by contacting LeDoux at (225) 405-1176.
Cash or checks made out to SCCS will be accepted and must be received prior to flocking a yard.
The fundraiser ends March 31.
