On August 18th, the Blue Butterfly House held a benefit concert to raise money, awareness and to honor David Heisler.
The concert was magical in many ways and was reported on as such, but we wanted to be sure to share the images of all the fun we had! Thanks so Sarah Jackman Photography, we were able to capture some behind the scenes smiles.
At the opening there was a tribute video to David Heisler to honor him on this particular day. It was exactly one year to the day that David's body was recovered in the Arizona Desert. His body was found by a BLM Geologist after a 7.5 week exhaustive search.
After the tribute video, a single dancer came out to dance to "Rise Up" by Andra Day and performed by Maddie Pemberton.
Right after that, Mariah Heisler came out and performed a special dance for her Daddy, David Heisler. She danced it with Tearony Martin. Their dance to Butterfly Kisses was captured by Nick Adams Photography.

Benefit Concert at Dixie State University. Choreographed by No Limit Dance Studio. Video courtesy of Nick Adams Photography.
Her dance was emotional, especially for her Grandparents (David's mother and father) that were in the audience. Here are some more images that Nick Adams caught that evening.
Then there was Sauny J. Great vocals were heard. A nice Reggae twist on some of our favorite cover songs.
Our Emcee Bruce Bennett and Executive Director to the Blue Butterfly House, Suzun Abbott, shared incredible insights and statistics. Suzun shared her story and the way that Blue Butterfly House was born. Also some of our wonderful prizes were given away, such as the Wake-board by American Gear Company and $250 Gift Certificate to JK Jewelers.
