About this Event


According to American Indian Legend,

if someone whispers a wish to a butterfly and then releases it,

that wish will come true…

BUTTERFLY PICK-UP will be available at select locations/times. You can then release your butterflies at home or a special location with your family and friends joining you, and at a time of your choosing or we can release them for you. 

YOU WILL RECEIVE your butterflies with release instructions, and an event program with the names of those being recognized. The butterflies will need at least an hour or so to warm up before you release them so please do not plan to release them at the pick-up locations.

TUNE INTO OUR FACEBOOK PAGE OR WEBSITE ( that evening (or whatever day and time works for you through the month of August) to see our complete program including the reading of the names of those being recognized.
