United Cerebral Palsy of Mobile is introducing a new Mobile Mardi Gras Flag. Supplement your Mardi Gras collection with this flag featuring Mobile Mardi Gras icons.
The flag, in Mobile’s traditional purple and gold, features at its center a large cowbell emblazoned with the head of a cow and a rake, emblematic of the Cowbellion de Rakin Society, America’s first mystic society. A Folly figure strikes a carefree pose leaning on the bell, while Slacabamarinico mirrors Folly’s pose on the other side of the bell.
High in the upper corner is a modified version of the UCP logo, specially made to represent Mardi Gras in Mobile, AL.
This flag is lightweight, so it will fly in even the slightest January or February breeze.
Available Flag Options:
- Garden Flag (12.5in. x 18in.) – $15
- Standard Flag with Grommets (3ft. x 5ft.) – $35
- Standard Flag with Sleeve (3ft. x 5ft.) – $35
- Bunting (6ft. x 9ft.) – $50
Please contact UCP Mobile at (251) 479-4900 for more information on shipping options.
In 2016, we came up with an idea to raise money to send kids to Camp SMILE who are in need of financial assistance. We called it “Miles for Smiles.” Lilia Melikechi and Jake Alvarez walked 137 miles from Mobile, Alabama to New Orleans, Louisiana in only 5 days. We set a goal of $1,500, or enough to donate 5 camperships to deserving families. The response was incredible. In just over 3 weeks, we raised almost $10,000! The outpouring of support was so amazing that we promised to do it again.
Last year, we walked back from New Orleans to Mobile. It was our first time asking for teams of volunteers to walk with us and the reply was great! We set a new record of almost $15,000 raised. This year we are walking back to new orleans and we’re asking for more people that are willing to get out there and help us make a difference one mile at a time!
The dates for this year’s event are Saturday, April 28th through Wednesday, May 2nd. We will be making 10, two-person teams to walk 13.7 mile stretches.
Show your support by sponsoring the team per mile, or by making a one-time donation. Donate online today at https://www.crowdrise.com/
Please help us make this year just as special so that we can give kids the experience of a lifetime! To learn more about camp, visit www.campsmilemobile.org
