WATERLOO (KWWL) -

Hundreds of people gathered Sunday in Waterloo to celebrate and remember their loved ones.

The Release and Remember event is a fundraiser for Cedar Valley Hospice.

There was food, music, and children's activities, but the main event the release of 1000 butterflies.

"A lot of people recognize the butterfly as a symbol of hope. And of course at Cedar Valley Hospice we work with people who are facing terminal illness and death and their families are facing grief. And so it's just a logical tie-in with the butterfly," said Chris Olds, Development Director for Cedar Valley Hospice.

The event raised just more than $48,000 for Cedar Valley Hospice.
