This beautiful and touching tribute honors community members and professionals who are dedicated to promoting child wellbeing. It is sponsored by the New Hanover Community Child Protection Team in recognition of National Child Abuse Prevention Month. Each flower that is launched into the Cape Fear River represents an individual or agency that has positively impacted the lives of local children.

The event will be held rain or shine.
