Annual Live Butterfly Release Fundraiser
14th Annual Butterfly Release
Saturday, July 8, 2023 11:00 AM - 2:00 PM

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! 

For a donation of $35, you get one butterfly For a donation of $100, you get four butterflies.
