Sequim flamingo fundraiser begins Sunday

SEQUIM — Flocks of plastic flamingos will begin to appear on Sequim yards beginning Sunday.

Parents of Sequim High School seniors are raising funds for the annual Safe and Sober Grad Party that follows the SHS graduation in June.

Those who find the flamingos in their yard will find a pouch around the lead flamingo’s neck. Inside will be a letter with detailed instructions about how to help the fundraiser.

Those “flocked” are asked to consider donating … and for an extra $10 they can request that the flamingos fly to a family member or friend.

Flocks “visit” properties for about 24 hours.

People are encouraged to take photos of themselves with the flock and post to social media.

Program organizers will take tagged pictures (or those emailed to Sequim gradparty2023@gmail.com) and post them to a Facebook or Instagram page.

The fundraiser is organized by a nonprofit and is not affiliated with the Sequim School District. All donations are tax-deductible. Checks can be made payable to Sequim Grad Party.

For more information, email Sequim gradparty2023@gmail.com.
