Home Release & Remember - Televised Program

Release & Remember celebrates loved ones with a televised program

Due to COVID-19, Release & Remember will be a televised broadcast this year on Sunday, Sept. 13 at NOON on The CW 7.2. There will be NO in-person event. The 30-minute TV program will feature a short presentation followed by the release of 1,000 monarch butterflies, accompanied by the musical talents of Maddie Poppe, season 16 winner of American Idol!  

We encourage you to take part in this unique expression of love by dedicating one or more butterflies as a celebration of someone special. For each memorial or honorary donation of $25, a butterfly will be released. If received before Monday, Aug. 17, tribute names will be scrolled during the televised program, listed on a banner outside the Cedar Valley Hospice Home (2001 Kimball Ave., Waterloo) from 9/13/20 - 9/20/20 and be available on our website to print. Those donating will also receive a keepsake certificate to personalize and keep as a reminder of the day.
