Celebrate the life of a loved one by releasing your own monarch butterfly!
Butterfly Release day is a unique opportunity to honor and memorialize loved ones by sponsoring a butterfly in their name. The release signifies freedom and happiness.
DONATE $30 FOR A BUTTERFLY, OR $100 FOR 4 BUTTERFLIES.
Due to COVID-19, we will be hosting our Annual Butterfly Release virtually again. We know how important this celebration of life is and particularly so, during this time of isolation, anxiety, and life-altering change. It gives us great pleasure to invite you to participate in our “Virtual Butterfly Release” on Sunday, August 15th, 2021.
Outline of Event on August 15th:
9:00 am – 11:00 am - Pick up your program and butterfly to release at home. Locations in Bracebridge, Gravenhurst, and Port Carling will be confirmed and advertised in local newspapers, at www.hospicemuskoka.com, and on social media by mid-July. Bring an insulated bag, cold pack, and tea towel to keep your butterfly cool until you get home.
12:00 pm – The link to our program of music, presentation of the names of those being remembered, and tribute to all of the “Heroes” that have stepped up for us all during this pandemic will go live at www.hospicemuskoka.com.
The butterfly campaign is open starting June 1st, 2021. Please donate early to avoid the rush.
