Conexión San Ángelo/ Staff report

SAN ANGELO – The Flamingo Fundraiser is fun and an attention-getter as a fundraiser. People can donate to have a small or large flock of flamingos roost on someone’s yard. Then those people can donate to have the flock moved to another yard and so on. 

We start this Sunday, Oct. 8th and will go through Saturday, Oct. 28th (right before Halloween). There will be Flock Insurance to purchase for $10 to keep the flock away from your yard. If people want to donate more, of course they can.  We’re hoping that this will be an annual fundraiser to help us maintain our budget to continue services to those affected by sexual violence and to offer support services to the LGBT+ community.

Also, if anyone is interested, we are working on funding to purchase a bigger space. We have a building in mind that would be perfect for us and the services we provide. We have secured $200,000 from the San Angelo Health Foundation, but we need about $160,000 more to purchase the building and get move in ready.  Whoever would like to donate can go to our website and either register for the fundraiser; or donate to our expansion project.  www.openarmscv.org
