Flamingo fundraiser will benefit Young Life

Red Wing Area Young Life, a non-denominational Christian organization, will be planting pink flamingos in Red Wing yards as a fundraiser to help kids in grades 6 through 12 attend summer camp.

Community members can pay $12 to have the plastic lawn ornaments placed in friends' or neighbors' yards. The birds will come with a sign telling the homeowner who paid for the lawn ornaments.

"Flocked" homeowners can make a $12 donation and have the birds sent to another yard, leave the birds alone until they're collected 24-48 hours after their arrival or call Young Life to have them collected immediately.

Call 651-388-8100 or email for more information.
