Pink Flamingo Flocking to Fight Breast Cancer
In its sixth year, the 2016 Pink Flamingo Flocking campaign, named "Flock Cancer," is designed to raise awareness about breast cancer and has the goal of raising at least $7,000 for the YWCA of North Orange County Early Breast Cancer Screening Program that serves more than 4,000 uninsured women in Orange County annually.
What is a Flocking?
A volunteer team from the YWCA is managing flocks of plastic, but friendly, pink flamingos on lawns throughout Fullerton, from October 1 through November 30. A flock of 20 pink flamingos and a sign that says "Flock Cancer. Finding the cure is everyone's business." will be placed on lawns throughout North Orange County. The flamingos will perch for 24-48 hours then migrate to another location identified by a colleague, local business, friend, or family participating in the program.
How can I participate?
There are three options to participate in this fun-spirited program: Donate $100 or more and 20 pink flamingos will land at your business to greet guests, along with a window decal that will show your support! Donate $50 to have 20 pink flamingos roost on the lawn of a residence. Want to support the program, but prefer to remain anonymous? Purchase "Flock Blocking Insurance" by donating $25.

In response to Breast Cancer Awareness Month, the YWCA of North Orange County organized a HOWLing good time raising $2,200 for our Neighborhood Link to Breast Cancer Screening Program. This program provides mammograms, clinical breast exams, diagnostic studies and navigation to follow up care should cancer be detected in women who are medically underserved.
Sponsors of our HOWLoween event included Camp BOW WOW, the Sheraton Park Hotel At the Anaheim Resort, and Bruce Cameron, author of "A Dog's Purpose". The book has been made into a movie to be released in January. Table vendors supporting this event included: Lisa Scarsi Pet Photography, Dr. Greek & Associates Veterinary, Furry Beli Deli Dog Treats, Dogs, Etc. Dog Training, Katie's Balloons, and Brighton Jewelry, Brea Mall.
Dogs were treated to PUPtinis, a resistance obstacle course, a dog psychic, and "Trick or Treat" goodies offered by the participating vendors. Guests were treated to wine and hor d'oeuvers, a crepe bar and the opportunity to show off their pet in a costume competition.
"Having the event at an elegant hotel that is dog friendly made the fundraiser so successful," said Diane Masseth-Jones, CEO, YWCA of North Orange County. "Lorraine Jones our event MC and Bruce Cameron, author of "A Dog's Purpose" added special moments that left the audience laughing and enjoying every minute."
Kris Hanna, Chairperson of the event remarked, "This event has to be repeated and we are in the process of planning our second annual HOWLoween CockTAIL PAWty. We hope to see you there!"
