Butterflies are Set to Soar to Celebrate Our Loved Ones!

Karen Ann Quinlan Hospice will host its 20th annual Butterfly Release Celebration with three events held in Sussex and Warren Counties, New Jersey and Pike County, Pennsylvania on the weekend of June 13th and 14th.

“This beautiful event honors the life of family and friends who are still with us and celebrates the memory of those loved ones we have lost,” explained Jennifer Smith, Manager of Special Events for Karen Ann Quinlan Hospice.

Since its inception in 2000, Smith-McCracken and Wood Funeral Homes have been central to the success of the event, leading the way as the major sponsor. “We are very proud to support hospice and the annual Butterfly Release Celebration. This event and the hospice exemplify the importance of friends and family,” stated Robert McCracken.

All Butterfly Release Celebrations will integrate live music with the reading of each name being celebrated and concludes with the release of dozens of butterflies.

Karen Ann Quinlan Hospice, currently celebrating its 40th year of providing hospice care to patients and their families, is pleased to announce that proceeds from this event will benefit the programs and services of the organization. The celebrations are hosted rain or shine; in the event of inclement weather, the butterflies will be released when conditions are suitable.
