Complaint Won’t Stop Flamingo Fundraiser

QUINCY, Mass., Nov. 3 (UPI) — Administrators at a Massachusetts high school said a fundraiser involving filling yards with flamingos will continue despite a complaint.

Quincy High School said the “flocking” fundraiser, which involves filling a resident’s yard with pink flamingos and having them pay $20 to “flock it forward” to another resident, will continue to raise funds for the after-prom Senior Night Out party despite a resident’s complaint that filling her yard with the plastic birds constituted vandalism, The Boston Globe reported Thursday.

“These children are being encouraged by adults in the school administration and parent advisory council to trespass and vandalize,” said the resident, Carol Abbott.

Quincy High School Principal Frank Santoro said the fundraiser has been used for three years and Abbott was the first to complain. He said residents who do not wish to participate are given a phone number to call so the flamingos can be removed.

“People have actually called and we have a waiting list of people who want to be flocked,” he said. “I feel bad for the lady. She shouldn’t be upset by this. A simple call would have taken them off the lawn. She chose to use other avenues.”
