Where Every Family Matters

Butterfly Release

It's an emotional and heart-warming experience to watch the release of hundreds of butterflies during Alive Hospice's annual fundraising event.

The loss of a loved one is hard. It's hard for you to let them move one. It's hard for you to move on. What better way to let them go and cherish their memories than with a butterfly release? On Saturday, May 11 at 10 a.m., Alive Hospice invites you to celebrate your loved one in a special way — a Butterfly Release Benefit. In addition to being a beautiful way to remember those you love, this event raises funds for Alive Hospice. With each purchase of a butterfly, you help bring care to others when they need it most.

While butterfly purchases are closed for this event, you can still come to the release. If they do have any butterflies left, you can purchase one at the event for $30 each. But, feel free to just come and enjoy the release. If you missed your chance to purchase a butterfly, check back for next year's event and purchase early!

Prior to the release, there will be a brief celebration of life service with inspirational readings and music. All are welcome to this kid-friendly event.
