One of the deepest and most powerful symbols of life and change is the butterfly, which are often released to signify important events or in remembrance of loved ones. With that idea in mind, the senior residents of Tequesta Terrace Assisted Living will celebrate life and love with family members and invited guests during a butterfly release celebration. The butterfly release event is a fundraising event for Trustbridge Hospice Foundation and will take place on May 2 at 5:00 p.m. at the senior living community (400 N US Highway 1). Tickets for the event will allow participants to select a butterfly that they can release in honor of a loved one. This sold out event is hosted by Tequesta Terrace Assisted Living.

“Trustbridge Hospice Foundation is truly grateful to Tequesta Terrace for hosting the butterfly release celebration and for acting as the benefactor for this fundraising event,” said Susan Smith, philanthropy specialist for Trustbridge Hospice Foundation. “Proceeds from this event will support the hospice programs that Trustbridge provides to the community at no cost. All of our services go above and beyond traditional hospice services and include: grief services for children and adults, camps for children, music therapy, pet therapy and extraordinary comfort measures. It is only because of the generosity of our community that Trustbridge Hospice Foundation can continue to provide exceptional care to families during their greatest time of need.”

The event represents beauty, serenity, peace and hope, and all financial donations will benefit Trustbridge’s Children’s Bereavement Camp, which helps to council children who have lost a parent or loved one. This special event is a time to come together as a community and celebrate those who have touched hearts and will never be forgotten.

“We look forward to contributing to a significant cause and hosting such a meaningful celebration with our residents and their families in honor of those we love,” said Shawn Gibbons, executive director of Tequesta Terrace Assisted Living. “It will be heartwarming to see the wonderment on the faces of those in attendance when the butterflies take flight. Nature is something that everyone can connect with, and by offering events such as this, we provide our residents the chance to connect with the world around them in an entirely new way.”
