If you are an artist or small business owner looking to promote yourself, you might want to consider dressing up a flamingo for charity.
Inspirations is hosting our 2nd annual Beach Bash Open House, but we've added a new event... a Flamingo Auction to benefit the SPCA of Wake County.
In a nutshell, you would take a pink lawn flamingo and transform it into a piece of art, planter, yard light etc. We would then auction it off and the proceeds go to the SPCA.
If you are a small business owner and wish to bypass the flamingo-decorating process, you can donate a gift certificate and we will auction it off.
By donating, you will receive:
- A tax deductible donation form so you can write off your donation
- A blog post on the Inspirations blog promoting your business or art studio which will also be cross-promoted on our Facebook page, Twitter and Instagram accounts.
- We will be advertising online as well as sending out press releases to local media.
- Signage at the store promoting your business or studio.
We have used, free flamingos graciously donated by Dazzle and Lace up at the store, or you can purchase a new flamingo from us for $7.95 or purchase your own elsewhere.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us! This is an unusual idea, so there will be a lot of questions and hopefully, many people in attendance!
I leave you with some transformed flamingo inspiration, found on Pinterest by searching for flamingo art challenge or flamingo sculpture. We've also added a board to our own Pinterest account, chock full of flamingos.
