PHS Project Graduation Flamingo Fundraiser Kicks Off

Flamingo Flock PhotoThe people living in Paris are no strangers to quirky fundraisers.  Friday evening, Paris ISD was visited by a flock of 24 pink flamingos.  The flamingo sighting was all for a good cause, an effort to raise money for Paris High School Project Graduation to help keep kids safe on graduation night.  Project Graduation will be “pinking” yards from now until June 1.

“For a donation of $10, you can ‘pink’ your neighbor with 12 pink darlings and  pass the love along,” said Committee Chairman, Jeanne Kraft.  “Larger flocks of 24 birds for $15, 36 for $20, and a super size flock of 60 for $30 are available,” she added.  “Anti-Flamingo insurance” is available for $10 to ensure no flock lands your way.

You can donate and “pink” your neighbors by calling migration specialists Kelly Cade (903-227-7161) or Gina Nance (903-517-9591) between now and May 31.   For more information, contact Kraft at 903-517-1098.

Residents can also purchase Anti-Flamingo Insurance for a premium of only $10.

The fundraiser kicks off on April 21 and runs through the end of May.

For more information or to donate, contact Jeanne Kraft at 903-517-1098, Kelly Cade at 903-227-7161, or Gina Nance at 903-517-9591.
