Butterfly Forms

Request and/or Sponsor a Butterfly Box

Please send an email to rebecca@emilyann.org if you would like to receive and/or sponsor a butterfly cage for the 2024 Butterfly Festival. Once we receive your request, we will contact you to confirm your cage and/or sponsorship. Cage sponsorships are $50 each.

Payment Information: Once you have sent the email request and it has been confirmed, you will receive a "welcome" email that includes payment options for the $50/per cage. If you have an outside sponsor, they will also receive information about payment. These emails are not automatically generated so it may be a few days before you receive the email.
