The Magnificent Release of the Butterflies has Returned

The Central Okanagan Hospice Association is honoured to announce the return of our Butterfly Vigil on June 20th. We ask our community to join us in coming together to remember, connect and celebrate.  The magnificent release of 600 butterflies is an opportunity for our community to release a butterfly in honour and memory of a loved one who has died.

The last two years have been challenging for many individuals and now is the time to reunite as a community.  

The Butterfly Vigil will take place at Rhapsody Plaza in downtown Kelowna, where we will gather to remember and release 600 butterflies. The event begins at 5:00pm with registration. There will be a short opening remembrance ceremony at 5:45pm followed by a group release of the butterflies. 

This meaningful remembrance is for all ages and we ask our community to connect in a meaningful way with others
