Events at Cedar Valley Hospice

“Nights” Event

Cedar Valley Hospice hosts the annual themed “Nights” event each spring. Guests enjoy a casual Friday evening of appetizers, silent auction, raffle, dinner, program and entertainment. Special emphasis is placed on educating the community about the programs and services of the agency and the opportunity to show financial support. This event requires registration prior to the event and ticket payment.

Release & Remember

Cedar Valley Hospice is proud of our popular butterfly release when 1000 live Monarch butterflies are released near the Cedar River at the Waterloo RiverLoop Amphitheatre. Hundreds of community guests join us to enjoy a picnic lunch, family activities, live entertainment and the opportunity to support and dedicate the release of a butterfly in memory or in honor of someone they love with a donation. This event is free and open to the public.

Tree of Love

This annual fundraiser is a tradition for Cedar Valley Hospice. Community donors may recognize a loved one during this beautiful time of year with a contribution and in return, receive a special ornament or bookmark as a keepsake. Ceremonies are held in early December in each of our four sites providing an opportunity to honor and remember loved ones during the holiday season. These ceremonies are free and open to the public.
