MOTHBALL. MothBall is the annual Grant Park Neighborhood Association (GPNA) costume ball fundraiser. After 36 consecutive years the event had lost it's famed swagger and gone on hiatus. Nominated to the GPNA board as the new MothBall chair, I lead a team of 7 volunteers in returning the party to it's original glory days. The theme, Hootenanny, was provided by the board. I found Seven Handle Circus, an up and coming bluegrass/rock band to perform live and asked local improvisors Lucky Yates and Amber Nash to host. The party exceeded all expectations and restored the neighborhood's faith in MothBall as an annual tradition.
