Once again ladies around Chattanooga will dust off their wedding, prom, or bridesmaid dress or any old dress to join each other at The Moth Ball by CityScope.
The Moth Ball by CityScope is an event for women, about women, to benefit women. This ladies’ only event will be held at Track 29 from 7-9 p.m. on March 10. Guests will enjoy hors d’oeuvres, an open bar, a chance to win jewelry prizes, a photo booth, and a DJ spinning tunes from all decades.
The Moth Ball was started in 2012 by Terri Holley, Alison Lebovitz and a committee to raise money for one non-profit in Hamilton County that benefits women. Since 2014, CityScope magazine has led the continued success of the annual event along with sponsors, media partners, and community volunteers dedicated to assisting women in need.
“To have CityScope magazine lead the continued growth and success of The Moth Ball for the benefit of women is a perfect way for our company to give back to the community,"s aid George Mullinix, publisher of CityScope and HeathlScope magazines. "This very creative and unique social for ladies is not only a lot of fun; it benefits a very important and worthy cause each year."
This year, the 2016 beneficiary is the Northside Neighborhood House. NNH was founded in 1924 by a group of women concerned for the welfare of their neighbors living in poverty on the NorthShore. Ninety-two years later, the NNH is still meeting the needs of families, of which 74 percent have women as the head of household. Past beneficiaries include the Children’s Advocacy Center of Hamilton County, The Women’s Fund of Chattanooga, and The Partnership’s Family Violence Center.
“One of our favorite things about this event is that it’s a wonderful, fun way for women to help other women in our area,” says Danielle Wright, operations and events at CityScope and HealthScope magazines. “Last year, over 850 ladies attended this fantastic girl’s night out and we are planning to host a lot more this year.”
Tickets purchased in advance are $35 and $25 for ladies under 30. Tickets can be purchased online at TheMothBall.org before March 1. After March 1, ticket prices go up $10 and can be only purchased at the door.
