Eat a ladybug, help Victoria Hospice

Victoria Butterfly Gardens is hoping people will eat ladybugs – of the chocolate variety – for a good cause.

For the month of March, half of all proceeds from the sale of chocolate ladybugs will go to Victoria Hospice for end-of-life care.

“Nearly all cultures think that Ladybugs are lucky,” said David Roberts, general manager of the Butterfly Gardens.

“Victoria is fortunate to have the care and support of Victoria Hospice and Victoria Butterfly Gardens are lucky to be able to work in partnership with them. We look forward to playing a small but important role in ensuring hospice care is available for all those who need it.”

In addition, the Butterfly Gardens is planning a symbolic release of hundreds of blue morpho butterflies into the garden, private viewings for hospice patients and additional fundraising events in the future.

The chocolates are for sale at the Butterfly Gardens, 1461 Benvenuto Ave.
