A charity butterfly release fundraiser will return this year in Langley after two years of COVID cancellations.
Butterflies will be set free at the event to raise money for the Langley Hospice Society and Langley Lodge on Saturday, Aug. 6, at Krause Berry Farms & Estate Winery.
“I can’t believe we actually get to do it in person again!” said Shannon Todd Booth, the acting executive director of Langley Hospice Society.
Like many public events, the annual butterfly release has been put on hold. Although it is an outdoor event, even last year the Hospice and Lodge wanted to be safe and didn’t hold the event, Todd Booth said.
“We’re excited just to be able to welcome folks back in person,” she said.
People who want to release butterflies are able to pre-order now. It costs $25 to release a butterfly, but people can also attend the fundraiser without donating to release one of the colourful insects.
The event takes place from 12:30 p.m. to 3 p.m. on the day. The butterflies will be released promptly at 1:30 p.m.
To pre-order, visit www.langleyhospice.ca/events/butterfly-release or contact the hospice society at 604-5301-1115 or firstname.lastname@example.org, or contact Langley Lodge at 604-532-4207 or email@example.com.
