Past Butterfly Release Events

Near North- from sdmoney lucas on Vimeo.

7th Live Butterfly Release Fundraiser 2016

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.

On the day of the event the names of the loved ones will be read aloud along with a few inspirational readings and afterwards everyone will release each of their butterflies in unison. The event will also include musical performances and a BBQ hosted by the Widdifield Lions Club.
