Upcoming Team Fundraisers

Glen Oaks Alzheimer's Special Care Center
You've Been Flocked Fundraiser!
You simply pay to put pink flamingo's in someone's yard for 24 hours.  The flocking is done in good spirits and our feathered friends mean no harm.  Our dedicated flamingo handling speacialists will come by to herd our flock to another friend's (victim's) lawn after 24 hours.
Flocking will start at the end of March dependent upon weather.  If interested in setting up a flocking, please contact Holly Merk at (515) 991-9610 or Frances Nolan at (515) 331-0970
Thank you for your sense of humor and support!
