Annual butterfly release is a success

butterly 2In preparation for the annual St. Michael’s Butterfly Release celebration, donations for the silent auction flooded in. More than 35 baskets with a variety of different themes were donated. Everything from a Packers themed basket to a Fourth of July basket to a coffee themed basket.

The silent auction was a new addition to the celebration. Proceeds from the silent auction go towards the St. Michael’s kitchen update project.

“For the past year, we have worked hard to raise the needed funds to update our community kitchen. We can see the finish line in sight,” explained Tiffany Olson, Administrator at St. Michael’s.

This event engaged residents, family members, church members and friends as well as community members and local businesses in the support of St. Michael’s.

St. Michael’s is a vibrant community with spirited residents and team members. To schedule a tour, call (608) 468-6380.
