Location: Cambier Park
The community is invited to join Avow at Cambier Park, Naples on Saturday, March 25, 2017 for its annual Butterfly Release event. Festivities begin at 10 AM and include children’s activities and a walk-through butterfly exhibit showcasing hundreds of live butterflies.
At noon, a community memorial service will be held and will include inspirational readings, music and the reading of names of loved ones being honored. At the conclusion of the service, the exhibit tent will be opened to allow the butterflies to take flight.
There is no fee to attend the event. Those who wish to have a loved one’s name read during the remembrance ceremony may do so by donating $40 per name (through March 23) to support Avow’s hospice and community programs. For details or to register visit avowcares.org/butterflyrelease or call (239) 649-3683.
A limited number of name registrations will be available on the day of the event prior to the start of the ceremony for a gift of $50. Early arrival is encouraged to allow for parking, check-in and time to experience the exhibit before the ceremony begins.
According to Avow President & CEO Jaysen Roa, “The butterfly was selected as the primary symbolic representation for this event because it undergoes a major transformative process as part of its normal life-cycle. 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.
