2018 Butterfly Festival Raises $50,000 for Parent Connection

Just over 1,800 guests joined us for the 10th annual Butterfly Festival on Saturday, June 16, 2018 at City Park in Appleton. Parents and their young children participated in games and family fun activities throughout the morning including face painting, crafts, an obstacle course, inflatable bouncers, and much more. The highlight of the event was a group butterfly release representing Parent Connection’s dedication to "Helping Families Fly."


Thanks to the generous support of our guests, sponsors and other contributors, the 2018 Butterfly Festival raised proceeds of more than $50,000 for child abuse prevention services in the Fox Valley area. Thank you all for your support!


All proceeds of the Butterfly Festival benefit the Parent Connection program of Family Services. Parent Connection is a parent education and early learning program serving the Fox Valley and Oshkosh. Click here to see more about how Parent Connection is making a difference.
