Sending up Painted Prayers

July 2015

“Sending Up Painted Prayers” was an event held to benefit Butterfly Bridge Children’s Advocacy Center.  Butterfly Bridge works tirelessly to advocate for children who are the victims of abuse.  

The evening began as children and adults gathered on the back porch of the mill. With paint brushes in hand, they each decorated their unique lanterns. As the sun began to set, everyone gathered on the bank of Yellowleaf Creek to send off their painted prayers. The lanterns were lit and sent off into the summer sky each one representing prayers and hope for our children.
