FITZGERALD, GA – Dorminy Medical Center is raising money for the Cancer Coalition of Ben Hill and Irwin County (CCBHIC) during the month of October by “Flocking” yards in Fitzgerald with fake flamingos.
“Every year we try to do some type of fundraising event to raise money for the CCBHIC,” said Holley Lee, Director of Community Relations at Dorminy Medical Center. “We wanted something a little different this year and decided the “You’ve been flocked” flamingos would be a fun way to bring recognition to breast cancer awareness and to raise money for a good cause.”
A flock of flamingos will be placed on your lawn with a sign displaying, “You’ve been flocked.” The flamingos are left on the lawn for only 24 hours. To have them removed, people are suggested to donate 25 dollars or more. If you want to avoid being flocked, you can purchase flamingo insurance and donate 20 dollars.
All proceeds will benefit CCBHIC, which in turn benefits our community; distributed by need to cancer patients residing in Ben Hill and Irwin counties needing assistance with medicine, basic needs, travel expenses associated with treatment, etc.
The campaign will last until October 28th. If you are interested in getting flocked, want to purchase flamingo insurance, or know someone you want to flock, contact Holley Lee at (229) 424-7107.
