Annual Hospice Butterfly Release is May 18

Published on March 21, 2019

Phelps Health Homecare’s fifth annual Hospice Butterfly Release Celebration will take place Saturday, May 18, 2019, from 2:00-4:00 PM at Huffman’s Flowers of the Field, located at 18148 County Road 1000 in St. James, Missouri.

For $30, participants can release a live butterfly and receive an event T-shirt. The deadline to reserve your butterfly is Wednesday, May 1, 2019. The afternoon also will include beverages and light snacks.

Community members also can only purchase event T-shirts for $20-$22 each, depending on the size.

Proceeds from the butterfly release help relieve the financial burden for those in need when facing end-of-life decisions.

The butterfly release benefits the Phelps Health Foundation’s Hospice Fund, which assists qualified hospice patients and their families with prescription medications, personal bills, food supplements and other needs.

Phelps Health Homecare, a division of Phelps Health, offers home health, hospice and in-home services in all of Phelps, Crawford, Maries and Pulaski counties as well as portions of Dent, Gasconade and Texas counties.

Phelps Health Homecare also is seeking sponsors for the butterfly release. Businesses can choose from various sponsorship levels.
