High school grad party fundraiser keeping flamingo tradition in 2014
Be on the lookout for a flock of flamingos making the pilgrimage to Sequim for a good cause.
Parents of the roughly 240 Sequim High School graduating seniors are beginning to “flock” Sequim-area lawns with flamingo ornaments in a four-week-long fundraiser for a safe-and-sober party after graduation, to run 8 p.m.-4 a.m. Friday-Saturday, June 13-14, at the Sequim Community Church.
The group asks a $25 “fee” to remove flocks and a $10 charge to send the flock to someone else. The goal is to raise $6,000-$7,000.
Melanie Bentz, fundraiser chairman, said at least 95 percent of SHS seniors attend the event, which serves as a good free and dry option after graduation.
Organizers hope to raise about $30,000 for the all-night party, which includes prizes, games and food.
Parents are also selling $5 raffle tickets for a chance to win multiple gift cards worth upward of $500, and they plan a four-man scramble golf tournament at the Cedars at Dungeness on Saturday, May 24.
All donations to the Sequim Graduation Party are tax-deductible. For more information, call Bentz at 461-2848.
