Malibu Bluffs Park


At 2:00pm on Sunday, November 13th the skies above Malibu will be alive with the glory of 1,000 native California butterflies being released by the EMILY SHANE FOUNDATION in honor of those mentors and role models who are positively impacting students’ lives.  This event also includes music by local Malibu talent, silent auction, interactive butterfly exhibits, fun art projects and games for kids of all ages.

We offer all who want to honor a mentor or special role model in their life a chance to do so by sponsoring one or more butterflies for just $10 per butterfly at

The Emily Shane Foundation’s ( SEA (Successful Educational Achievement) Program provides 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 this much needed after school support.

The  only  “cost”  to  SEA  student  participants  is to perform a good deed for every mentoring session they receive, in the spirit of “Passing it Forward” which  is  the  Foundation’s  motto. The mentoring does, however, have an approximate cost of $10 per mentor-hour in overhead. Sponsorship of these butterflies will provide 1,000 mentor/tutoring hours to help at-risk kids thrive in school and have a chance to succeed in life. Our goal is to have every butterfly sponsored prior to the vent.

The Emily Shane Foundation was created in memory of 13-year old Emily Shane who was tragically murdered on Pacific Coast Highway in Malibu on April 3, 2010. Her parents, Michel and Ellen Shane, started the foundation as a way to honor Emily whose empathy and generous spirit was cherished by all who knew her.
