The Wings of Hope Butterfly Release Event is an annual event.
DESCRIPTION: The annual Wings of Hope: A Butterfly Release to benefit Cancer Support Community Delaware is highlighted by the release of 250 Monarch butterflies in recognition of family, friends and neighbors throughout Sussex County whose lives have been impacted by cancer. This free, community-wide event for all ages also includes an amazing display of thousands of paper butterflies, live music from local musicians, activities for kids and, of course, a variety of vendors and refreshment offerings. Our 2016 Wings of Hope reached thousands in our region with well over 3,000 paper butterflies sold; and an estimated 700 people gathered for the Butterfly Release with even more expected this year.
Cancer Support Community Delaware is part of a national nonprofit organization that provides support, education and hope to people with cancer and their loved ones. Through participation in professionally led support groups, educational workshops and mind/body classes, people affected by cancer learn vital skills that enable them to regain control, reduce isolation and restore hope regardless of the stage of disease. At Cancer Support Community Delaware, all programs are offered at no cost to the participants. More information about Cancer Support Community Delaware is available at our website.
