Social Butterfly Foundation Swarms Miami - Press Release

Social Butterfly Foundation Swarms Miami For A Good Cause  

Social Butterfly Foundation hosts “Butterflies on Bikes” and “Wing Walk” to raise awareness for Foster Care Youth Mentoring

Miami   -    Jul 28, 2011   ---   

Social Butterfly Foundation announces two exciting events: “Butterflies on Bikes” & “Wing Walk” both held on August 13, 2011.

Butterflies on Bikes is 10 mile morning cycle ride for cause. Each cyclist will wear brilliantly coloured butterfly wings to raise awareness for foster care youth mentoring and participate in a school supply drive. Cyclists will meet at 10a.m. at Government Center Metrorail Station located at 111 NW 1st St  and ride to Lime Fresh Mexican Grill in the Shops at Midtown. Refreshments will be served and cyclists will have an opportunity to purchase and donate backpacks for the back to school supply drive.

Wing Walk is an evening event where supporters will wear butterfly wings and swarm Wynwood’s Art Walk to increase awareness and support local community cultural arts. The group will meet at Wynwood Walls, located on 2nd Ave between 25th and 26th street at 7PM where Butterfly Wings will be distributed. Social Butterfly encourages everyone to join them for their involvement in this cultural event and help spread the word about their cause, all while having a good time. Donations will be accepted for supporters wishing to participate in the Wing Walk.

Emerge Miami & W-Girls are both fantastic organizations that have joined the Foundation in this initiative. “The goal of our events is to increase awareness of the need for foster care mentoring and raise resources for the foster care population it serves. We want the community to see the enthusiasm we all have for this cause.” States Ingrid Mejia, Founder of Social Butterfly Foundation.

Together with the Board of Directors & Volunteers Social Butterfly Foundation aims to better Miami, implementing the group’s social skills and cultural arts awareness programs among the city’s foster care youth.
