It is an event where people throughout the region reserve live butterflies in memory of loved ones who have passed. At the event, the butterflies are distributed, and then, after a small ceremony, everyone releases their butterflies at the same time. It is a moving experience.
Butterflies can be reserved at $30 each or four for $100. All the proceeds go towards Near North Palliative Care Network to help fund the free palliative services and bereavement support it provides to the region.
To reserve a butterfly, please call (705) 497-9239, go online to nnpcn.com, or visit our office at St. Joseph’s Motherhouse at 2025 Main St. West in North Bay.
There will also be live music, a silent auction, activities for children, a BBQ, and refreshments at the event. We hope to see you there.
