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 13th Annual Live Butterfly Release Fund Raiser 2022!
