It's time for Football Frenzy!   
Most of you are aware of the Flamingo Flock fundraiser.  Your friend makes a donation to a worthy cause and suddenly 15 or more plastic pink flamingos appear in your front yard. 
 Click here for the flyer.
In support of the Debt Free in Three campaign, the youth here at Saxe Gotha have decided to expand on this concept and take advantage of the college football rivalry that exists here in Lexington.  So instead of pretty pink flamingos, you can have rival college football signs placed in your friend's yards. For just a small fee, your die-hard Clemson fan can wake up to Carolina football signs covering their front yard.  
We currently offer Carolina, Clemson and Georgia signs.  Not the school you're looking for? Don't despair! We are happy to create signs for the school of your choice. All questions can be sent to:
