Anyone who has lost a loved one is invited to a celebration of life butterfly release Sunday.

Nathan Adelson Hospice Foundation is hosting the event at the UNLV Alumni Park Amphitheatre that starts at 2 p.m. with 500 butterflies released around 2:30 p.m. Sunday.

The premise of the butterfly release is based on a Native American legend for carrying wishes to the heavens, according to Nathan Adelson Hospice Foundation.

Butterflies can be reserved in advance for $25 by contacting Stephanie Forbes at 702-938-3910 or via email at sforbes@nah.org.
