The One Thousand Butterfly Event in Malibu

Malibu, CA — A thousand  real butterflies will be released in Malibu Bluffs Park on Sunday,  Nov. 13th, in honor of mentors and role models who make miracles in people’s lives. The event is part of the Emily Shane Foundation traditional fundraiser celebration and SEA (Successful Educational Achievement) Program. Film producer, Michel Shane and wife Ellen, received President Obama’s Lifetime Achievement Award in 2015 for their “lifelong commitment to building a stronger nation through volunteer service.” The Shanes are founders of the Emily Shane Foundation and continue to carry their daughter’s legacy, who at age 13, was murdered by a suicidal driver in Malibu. The foundation encourages people to perform acts of kindness and good deeds for others.

The butterfly release event includes live music, art projects and games for children, butterfly exhibits and silent auction. FREE to attend. $10 donation to sponsor a butterfly.

SEA turns frustration and poor academic performance into smiles and success. Donations raised provide funding for individualized, intensive mentoring to struggling/failing middle school
students in the mainstream classroom. SEA students are those who risk “falling through the cracks” and who could not otherwise afford much needed after school support.


Shane has produced a long list of successful films including the Oscar nominated and multiaward winning Spielberg directed film, “Catch Me If You Can,” starring Leonardo DiCaprio.
