8th Annual Butterfly Release Beaumont  

The Harbor Foundation proudly hosted their 8th Annual Celebration of Life Butterfly Release on Saturday, April 29th, 2017. This is the first year that the event was hosted at Ford Park, and the entire community was invited with free admission to this event. With over 6000 in attendance, this was the largest butterfly release Harbor Foundation has ever hosted. There was several different types of food, all donated by community sponsors. Including Hotdogs, Links, Pizza, Cupcakes, Cookies, Sno-cones, Popcorns, Bundt Cakes, and more – there was no shortage of food or options.

Activities and games provided by community sponsors included from face painting, a catch and release fish tank, a petting zoo, animal adoptions, and a Ferris wheel that was donated by Harbor Healthcare System. Local band, “Champagne Room” performed on stage throughout the event. System Director of Spiritual Counselors for Harbor Hospice, Jerry Fenter, spoke on behalf of Harbor Foundations “Celebrate Life” program. Butterflies were released at 1 pm by those in attendance to honor loved ones who have passed. Proceeds from the butterfly release go to help patients and their families well beyond the scope of traditional health care.


All proceeds from butterfly and t-shirts sales go to Harbor Foundation. Harbor Foundation is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization that raises funds to provide for patients who have needs outside the scope of health care.
