The Butterfly Mission is excited to hold its 3rd annual fundraiser “Holiday Helper.” This event will take place on Thursday, December 5th at 34 Clancy Lane Estates, Rancho Mirage from 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. The fundraiser will provide the general public the opportunity to see and understand how The Butterfly Mission affects the community in a positive way.

The Butterfly Mission was founded by Kim Livreri in 2016 who experienced her own life struggles and realized there were other moms and their children who were falling through the cracks with no help. As a long-time resident of the Valley, Kim began the organization to help provide homeless mothers and their children with mentoring, job placement and education. The non-profit 501 (c)(3) works closely with the Coachella Valley Rescue Mission, Desert Best Friends Closet and other non-profits throughout the Coachella Valley to help the vulnerable population in becoming self-sustainable.

Come Join the Butterfly Mission for an amazing night of food, music by DJ Craig Michaels, raffle prizes and silent action. If you’re not able to attend you can still help by donating raffle prizes and silent auction items. Sponsorship opportunities are available. Tickets are $25 at the door or you can buy them on their website, or on their Facebook Page. For more information you can contact Kim Livreri: or 760-212-2678
