Found Flamingos in Your Yard? They’re Flocking for a Worthy Cause!

(Lexington Ky. - August 30, 2011) Once again, Lexington-based Republic Bank associates are raising
money for breast cancer research in a unique way: by “planting” a flock of pink plastic flamingos in the yards of local residences, and businesses.

Republic Bank Lexington Market President Bo Henry explained,
“If you’ve been ‘flocked’ pass it on! Contact us by phone, or
online and for your $20, or more, donation to the American
Cancer Society’s Strides Against Breast Cancer campaign we’ll
transplant the birds to any yard you want. Local businesses, have
us ‘flock’ a competitor’s yard. If your home has been flocked,
have us move the birds to the yard of someone with a sense
of humor, and willingness to help this worthwhile cause.” Henry
said each recipient receives information both on how to make
a donation, and have the flock wing its way to another Fayette
County location.

Republic Private Banker Emily Miller added, that last year, Republic’s ACS initiative generated over
$10,000 for breast cancer research. “This year, we’re hoping even more individuals and businesses
will get in on the fun,” she said. “Our team is ready to ‘flock’ virtually any business or residential yard in
Fayette County!”
