Expect to see flocks of flamingos landing in Paonia yards throughout the month of February. The "Give a Flying Flock for KVNF" event begins on Feb. 1.
During this time listeners can purchase a flock of flamingos that will magically appear in a friend's front yard. Your friend can then Flock it Forward, and the fun continues. This new fundraiser will benefit KVNF Community Radio, a local non-profit organization.
Send a small flock of 10 flamingos for a $20 donation, a medium flock of 20 for a $30 donation, or a large flock of 30 flamingos for a $40 donation. Flamingos can land only at single-family homes — apartments make them nervous. Flocking is currently available only in the town of Paonia. Once the flock becomes comfortable in the region, they may be up for visiting other towns in the KVNF listening area.
"Fundraising at KVNF is exactly that: FUN! I created this fundraiser to allow community members to experience some of the magic that goes on behind the scenes at KVNF. It's a unique, silly and affordable way to support our radio station. My hope is that each time the flock lands they deliver joy and smiles onto those being flocked! I'm hoping that the fundraiser is so popular that out of fear of being left out, people will be paying to flock themselves. Flock or be flocked." said KVNF's Amber McDaniel.
Flocking is subject to the availability of the Flocking Squad and the flamingos' flight path. Flocking will only be done in good humor, not out of spite. Please know that if you're flocked and disturbed by pink flamingos on your yard, the flocking coordinator will immediately pick up and relocate the flock.
