2013 Butterfly Ball

The planning has already begun for The Butterfly Fund’s 4th Signature event…The Butterfly Ball! This year’s theme is a Sentimental Summertime Soiree! 100% of the net proceeds from this event go directly to help families who have child with any catastrophic illness or event.

We are so honored to have our beautiful event hosted this year by Larson Family Winery (located at 23355 Millerick Road) in the beautiful and quaint town of Sonoma, CA.

The Butterfly Ball is a very sentimental event and one that we are extremely proud of. We will be expecting to sell all of our 250 tickets and make this night something to remember! We will honor 3 amazing families this year:

Anim Vinson, in honor of her 2 year old son, William, who has a disease called Epidermolysis Bullosa, also known as EB.

Jodi Simmons and Timaree Marston in honor of their 3 year old son Caemon who is currently going through a bone marrow transplant to save his life from Leukemia

Davis & Mindy Luby in honor of their 3 year old daughter, Sierra, who was diagnosed this year with Leukemia. Sierra also has Downs syndrome.

The evening always begins with a very unique and beautiful Butterfly Release, honoring all the children and their care givers. We encourage all guests to participate. We will have dining by local professional chefs & restaurants and dancing to Sonoma’s own soulful band “JoyRide”. Unique raffle and silent auction, Butterfly Bingo and a Live dessert auction! Beautiful, professional face painting and butterfly henna tattoos will also be available.

The Butterfly Ball was my dream.

The Inaugural Butterfly Ball was held in July of 2009.  The 2nd Butterfly Ball was held in Sept. of 2010 and the 3rd Annual BB was held December 2011. The event was created because I wanted to see an event that raised money for needed items for families who had sick children…really sick children.  Where all the money raised actually went to help the people we said we wanted to help.

The Butterfly Ball is a beautiful, sentimental event, with amazing food, live music, silent & live auctions and more!  The first two years, we held a butterfly release, that was not only spectacular  but the sentiments behind it literally brought guests to tears. We honor two families each year- families who have a very heartfelt story to tell.

The Proceeds

All proceeds from The Butterfly Ball are given to families in need within a few months after the event, so the need to raise more funds each year is great.  From anything to supplies, medical needs, gas cards, food, clothing, transportation, canine companions, and so much more.  Sadly, sometimes, we give funds to families who cannot afford a funeral or a tombstone for their child. The list truly is long and the range of what we purchase for families is very wide.
