Good Natured

| July 3, 2012 | Parties

THE PARTY The Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum’s Butterfly Ball was a Tour de Nature-themed evening, inspired by the exhibit Bikes! The Green Revolution. THE SCENE Event Creative designed the space with bicycle chandeliers and lush floral centerpieces for more than 620 guests, including Toni Preckwinkle, Rick and Cate Waddell, Greg and Mamie Case, Anne Pramaggiore, and master of ceremonies Linda Yu. After dining on Calihan Catering’s seasonal dishes, the crowd took to the dance floor, where Lynne Jordan and the Shivers provided the music at this 14th annual event. THE BOTTOM LINE More than $1.6 million was raised to support the museum’s education initiatives. Photos by Steve Becker
