Snowball 2011 Stage Decor

Snowball 2011 Stage Decor

Snowball 2011, hosted by the Junior Council of Children's Memorial Hospital, took place in Navy Pier's Grand Ballroom, Chicago on February 5th 2011 ( 1250 young professionals filled the ballroom for a night of food, fun, dancing, and more!

I constructed the stage decor for the event, using what I had made the year before and re-painting it to match the theme colors. Snowflakes were also added this year to give it a sparkling 3-D effect. The previous year the stage decor was made to reflect the skyline theme of Snowball which came from a skyline piece of art made by a child at Children's Memorial.

I altered the Snowball 2011 panels from the panels I previously made for Snowball 2010:

Painted for the Snowball 2011 auction, the bean bag boards were a beautiful custom made set by Jim Theil at Theil Cabinet Shop in St. John, Indiana. The pair was painted with a cross-town classic tailgate theme. The auction was a success, as was Snowball: The Junior Council ( donated $105,000 to the AIDS & HIV Clinic at Children's Memorial Hospital!
