Inside the 2018 Moth Ball, One of New York's Biggest Fundraisers
The Moth, a live storytelling show that has spawned a radio program and a podcast that's said to be downloaded 47 million times a year, doesn't always do its best work behind a microphone. On June 5, the organization held its annual Moth Ball at Capitale in New York City and drew more than 500 guests with an Alice in Wonderland-style theme ("The Hatter's Mad Tea Party") and an award for the cartoonist Roz Chast. Oh, and of course a bit of storytelling from a group including students from The Moth's high-school programming. The sold-out event, attended by the likes of Darren Aronofsky, Rosanne Cash, Molly Ringwald, and more, was the group's most successful fundraiser to date.
