Ugly Bug Ball: When I Grow Up

Thank you to everyone that supported Amazement Square through attending and purchasing auction items at our 17th Annual Ugly Bug Ball!

Guests came dressed as their childhood dreams and enjoyed a whimsical evening of dinner, dancing, and an exciting silent and live auction!   


What is the Ugly Bug Ball?
