The Southwest Florida community is invited to join Avow at Cambier Park, Naples on Saturday, April 7, 2018 for its 13th annual Butterfly Release event. Festivities begin at 10 AM and will include children’s activities and a walk-through butterfly exhibit showcasing hundreds of live butterflies.

Beginning at noon, a community memorial service will include inspirational readings, music, and a name-reading ceremony to honor the lives of loved ones. At the ceremony’s conclusion, the exhibit tent will open, allowing over 500 butterflies to float into the sky.

The event is free. Attendees are encouraged to arrive early to allow for parking, check-in, and time to experience the butterfly exhibit prior to the ceremony. Those who wish to have a loved one’s name read during the remembrance ceremony may do so by donating $50 per name to support Avow’s hospice and community programs. For details or to register visit avowcares.org/butterflyrelease2018 or call 239-261-4404.

According to Avow President & CEO Jaysen Roa, “The butterfly is a reminder of how beautiful, delicate and fragile life can be, so that we should remember to appreciate and be grateful for each moment.”

The Avow Butterfly Release is generously endowed by the Gorlach family.

Avow’s nonprofit companies provide palliative care consultations for adults facing chronic or serious illness and hospice care and bereavement support services for children and adults. To learn more call 239- 261-4404 or visit avowcares.org.
