Carlsbad CA— Hospice of the North Coast (HNC) is pleased to present one of its most inspirational annual events at one of Carlsbad’s most iconic al fresco settings.
The May 21, 2017 Butterfly Release takes place at the magnificent Flower Fields at Carlsbad Ranch, 5704 Paseo del Norte, from 2-4 pm. The event is open to the public, but reservations are required. Visit www.hospicenorthcoast.org/events or call 760.431.4100 to register.
Admission is free. Donations are welcomed and greatly appreciated.
According to HNC Executive Director Sharon Lutz, the event is a “release” on many levels. She says, “We combine music, message and refreshments in a convivial setting that brings people grieving the loss of a loved one together in an atmosphere of hope and healing. When each guest, from the youngest to the oldest, sets their butterfly free and watches it soar into the sky, it brings cathartic tears to everyone’s eyes, including mine. The Butterfly Release is a transformational experience.”
The Butterfly Release features HNC Care Advocate Cristina Montanez as spiritual keynote speaker. As an exciting addition to the day’s activities, HNC will debut its Healing HeARTs program, funded by a City of Carlsbad Community Arts Grant. Program providers will offer information and sign-ups to people who wish to take advantage of one or more of the upcoming Expressive Art therapy workshops focusing on music, drama, writing, photography and performance art.
Lutz says, “We thank our venue sponsor, Flower Fields at Carlsbad Ranch, and event sponsor, William Gumpert Foundation. The support we receive from these organizations and community members enables us to provide care for terminally ill veterans, homeless people and others who do not have funding for hospice care. Our goal is to maintain dignity, comfort and the highest quality of life for those we serve, regardless of their ability to pay.”
Nonprofit Hospice of the North Coast was established in 1980 to fill the need for comprehensive, compassionate hospice care in North County San Diego. Since its inception, it has grown in services These include global partner Nkhoma Palliative Care in Malawi, a resale store in Encinitas, Pathways Palliative Care, Hope Bereavement Center and Pacifica House, the only in-patient acute symptom management facility in North County.
