ROXBURY, NJ - Although winter is here, the pink flamingo flocking continues around Roxbury.

The latest Roxbury School administrator to be hit hit was Chris Argenziano, principal of Lincoln/Roosevelt School. He came in one recent morning to find his office full of 50 pink flamingos. One was sitting at his desk. A group was having a bite to eat around his conference room table. 

Flocking is a fun fundraiser for Roxbury High School’s mini-THON to help raise money for children with pediatric cancer.

“Flocking is when you harmlessly prank your friends by signing up for us to put a flock of plastic flamingoes on their lawn,” explained the committee running the effort.

It’s not too late to purchase Anti-Flock Insurance for $5 which guarantees protection from the flamingoes.

Those who want to flock a friend can choose how many flamingos they want to migrate to their friend’s yard for 24 hours. A flock of 10 flamingos is $15. A flock of 30 is $25 and a large flock, 50 flamingos, costs $35.

Once the forms are submitted to the mini-THON advisors, the Flock Squad takes over. Moving the flamingos is free of change, but a donation is optional. Flamingos are not allowed to flock on public property or apartment complexes.

Funds raised through Roxbury High School mini-THON events will be donated to Four Diamonds. Roxbury High School will host its 5th Annual mini-THON to conquer childhood cancer by partnering with Four Diamonds on March 16.

Last year, Roxbury nearly tripled its success from the previous year by having more than 400 participants and raising $52,237.82. The organizers are hoping to break $75,000 this year.  All mini-THON mini fundraisers are added to the overall total for the year.

Participants in the 2018 Roxbury High School Mini-THON are joining more than 90,000 students in the nationwide movement.

In the U.S., more children die from cancer than any other disease, with 16,000 diagnosed every year. The Roxbury mini-THON team is working to change that by partnering with Four Diamonds to conquer childhood cancer through world-class care, transformative philanthropy and life-saving research.

Ongoing donations can be made at any time on the RHS mini-THON donation page at https://fourdiamonds.donordrive.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=donorDrive.event&eventID=1861. Anyone can donate using the online forum provided by Four Diamonds. Any money donated on “Donor Drive” goes directly to the Four Diamonds, which is a 501(c)3 organization that is eligible for tax write-offs.

For questions regarding the RHS mini-THON, please email RHSminiTHON@gmail.com.
