If you spot a group of plastic pink flamingos on your lawn, there’s a reason they’re congregating.
The plastic lawn ornaments are park of a “flocking” fundraiser put on by the Gig Harbor High School Destination Imagination team.
The team recently won a state championship and is headed to the University of Tennessee to participate in the global finals in May.
To raise money for the big trip, the team is doing a fundraiser where team members are dropping the flamingos around town. Donors can choose a house to be “flocked,” and Destination Imagination team members will fill that house’s front yard with pink flamingos.
The “flocked” house will get a note that says for a donation a team will “deflock” the house.
Destination Imagination is a global nonprofit that emphasizes problem solving, collaboration and presentation along with STEM skills.
Gig Harbor’s team will be one of 1,300 teams from 14 countries to compete in the finals. This is the ninth year this team will represent Gig Harbor at the global finals.
