In celebration and memory of those we have loved and lost, we invite you to take part in the 6th Annual Butterfly Release, hosted by Blessing Hospice & Palliative Care.

This year's event takes place on Sunday, August 12, at Quincy Wavering Park (Large Pavilion), located on North 36th Street in Quincy.

Registration is open from 1:30-1:45 pm, with the butterfly release promptly at 2 pm. Butterflies are $7 each. Also, this year, each butterfly ordered will come with a commemorative window cling!

Orders must be received to the Blessing Foundation by 4:30 pm on Friday, July 20. Click here for a printable order form and payment information.

If you are unable to attend the event and still wish to have a butterfly released, a member of the Blessing Hospice team will release the butterfly on your behalf.

The event will be held rain or shine. However, butterflies cannot be released in inclement weather, so you may take your butterfly with you to release at home later

Any butterflies not picked up will be released by Blessing Hospice staff. For additional information, please contact Steve Felde, (217) 223-8400, ext. 4191 or by email at steve.felde@blessinghealthsystem.org.
