This year’s release was a great success with beautiful weather, inspirational speakers and of course, the sight of over 500 butterflies taking flight. We couldn’t do it without our wonderful supporters! Thanks to all of you who attended our event and donated to our cause. For those of you who couldn’t attend, please see a video from the State Newspaper.
