The History of The Moth Ball

Women love a good excuse to dress up, especially when it’s for a good cause. The Moth Ball® by CityScope®, a ladies-only fundraiser, is a chance for women to dust off that wedding, prom, bridesmaid dress or anything old in their closet for an evening full of food, fun, fabulous music and tons of fashions from the past.

The Moth Ball® was started in 2012 by Terri Holley, Alison Lebovitz, and a dedicated committee and was an instant success. Inspiration for The Moth Ball came when Lebovitz’s husband Alan dared her to wear her wedding dress to dinner for the couple’s anniversary. When the couple ran into then co-chair Terri Holley, the idea for a new fundraiser was born. “We talked about how much fun it would be to dare others to wear their old dresses too, and how an event like that would make a great fundraiser for women’s causes within our community — and the rest, as they say, is fashion history,” says Lebovitz.

The Moth Ball®’s fundraising mission is to select a different beneficiary each year that is a nonprofit in Hamilton County whose work has a positive impact on women. Since its inception in 2012, a special group of sponsors and women between the ages of 21 and 91, who have attended the event, have helped raise more than $143,000 to support other women.

In 2015, CityScope magazine stepped in to lead the continued success and growth of the event along with a great group of community volunteers. We hope to see you on March 9, 2017!

Beneficiaries of The Moth Ball® by CityScope® are chosen by event organizers on an annual basis. Eligible organizations must be a nonprofit in good standing with 501c3 status, whose work is based in Hamilton County, Tennessee and have a positive impact on the lives of women in this community.
