Fundraiser Details

 

 

WHAT:

Sponsor a Flamingo is a fundraising program that raises funds to support the BPTO's Curriculum Enrichment programs at both Cole and Spofford Pond.

 

Sponsor a Flamingo is also a really fun way to get students, families, and the community excited about the Color Run. All the flamingos that are "sold" are personalized with the runners name and placed along the Color Course of the Color Run. On Color Run day hundreds of flamingos can be seen helping the runners fly across the finish line.

 

Sponsor a Flamingo is also a friendly competition among our community, because the student, one from Cole and one from Spofford, who "sells" the most flamingos WINS a ride to their school in a Boxford Police vehicle - sirens, lights, and loud speaker included! 

 

WHEN:

Flamingo sales run May 16th thru June 9th.

FAQs

Do we get to keep the flamingos? No. As responsible stewards of the fundraised for this fundraiser, we reuse the flamingos each year. We kindly ask that you and your children don't take the flamingos from the Color Run Course.

 

We do however, strongly encourage you to find your runners personalized flamingos and take photos at the Color Run.

 

Do flamingos end up in my front yard?  If they do, it's not because of us! No, Sponsor a Flamingo does not mean you wake up to being "flocked". All flamingos are purchased online and customized by event volunteers and will be lining the Color Run course.

 

Can I "sell" flamingos if my child isn't running in the Color Run? Yes! Any enrolled Cole or Spofford student may sell flamingos and be eligible to win the Boxford Police vehicle ride to their school.

 

Can someone from out of town or another state purchase flamingos? Yes, and we encourage it!  All flamingo sales are done online, so anyone can purchase flamingos on behalf of your child/runner. Share the custom URL boxfordpto.org/sponsor_a_flamingo so friends and family from far and wide can support your fundraising efforts.

 

How will we know where our child stands in the flamingo sales?  The BPTO will do bi-weekly Facebook posts highlighting the top three students from each school. Plus, you can always email the BPTO if you're dying to know!
