WHEN: SATURDAY, July 16, 2016, 11 AM to 1 PM.
WHERE: Kiwanis Band Shell, Waterfront, Memorial Drive, North Bay ON

The 7th Live Butterfly Release Fundraiser was the biggest butterfly release in the history of NNPCN. 500 Monarch Butterflies and Painted Ladies were released at North Bay waterfront. There were an estimated one thousand people present at the event. Thank you for your participation and support to the cause of free Visiting Hospice and Bereavement Support services in our community! See you next year, at the 8th Live Butterfly Fundraiser 2017, and please bring your family and friends!

DUE TO THE TREMENDOUS SUCCESS OF THE EVENT, NNPCN IS LAUNCHING THE CAMPAIGN “I SUPPORT MY LOCAL VISITING HOSPICE!”

The momentum created by the Butterfly Release was FABULOUS and NNPCN would like to see this fantastic support going forward. So we created a new online fundraising campaign option – “I SUPPORT MY LOCAL VISITING HOSPICE.”

Please remember NNPCN between your Hydro and telephone bills, and SUPPORT YOUR LOCAL VISITING HOSPICE not only now but all year through!

Every year, the Near North Palliative Care Network organizes an open-air event to celebrate the life and memory of your loved ones. Participants have the opportunity to sponsor a butterfly and release it in honour and memory of a loved one who has passed away.

The butterflies are delivered in especially tailored packages. These dark and cool conditions keep the butterflies in a comfortable resting state until the day of the release. Once the package is opened, the natural heat and light will awaken these sleeping beauties and inspire them to take flight.

The event also includes musical performances, fabulous draw prizes, and a BBQ!

Come celebrate with us the awesome work of our volunteers! Show your solidarity to our clients and their families: your company makes all the difference at the 7th Annual Live Butterfly Release Fund Raiser 2016!
