On June 8, Chrysalis hosted its summery Chrysalis Butterfly Ball at a private estate in Brentwood. The event's hospitality sponsor, the Palazzo Resort Hotel Casino, provided costumed characters from its Carnevale festival—and guests were particularly intrigued with one leafy performer. A so-called “living vine” almost blended in with an ivy-covered fixture that was erected on the venue's grounds. “Her motions were slow and methodical, and she played with guests by moving over and around them,” said Matt Stoelt of Stoelt Productions L.L.C., which designed and produced the event. “Guests seemed to be almost mesmerized.”
