STAINED GLASS BUTTERFLY REATTACHED
WCA’s “Taking Flight” Statue Whole Once Again
Boise, ID – On Monday, November 18, 2013, the stained glass butterfly — stolen on around 10 p.m. on November 11 and returned the next day — was welded back onto to the statue that welcomes all to the Women’s and Children’s Alliance on Washington Street in downtown Boise.
Upon hearing of the most recent theft, Payette Brewing Company stepped forward and scheduled a “Kegs4Kause” fundraising event to benefit the WCA. From 3 p.m. to 10 p.m. on November 25, 2013, 50 percent of all beer sales will go to the WCA’s “butterfly fund” – to cover expenses incurred by the WCA from all three instances of theft and vandalism to the statue. Come join us as we celebrate the butterfly’s safe return and contribute to the “butterfly fund” in the process.
“While the three young men seen in the security footage have yet to be publicly identified by authorities, we hope that the swift reaction and support from the community through social media and the support from local media outlets has made an impact on them – and caused them to pause and realize there are implications to every choice one makes,” said Chris Campbell, WCA Communications Manager.
“We would like to extend the invitation to anyone, and especially these three young men, to come to the WCA, take a tour and learn about the work we do in our community,” said WCA Executive Director Bea Black.
