Petersen Automotive Museum

Since its inception more than two decades ago, the illustrious Chrysalis Butterfly Ball has raised over $20 million toward helping individuals navigate obstacles on their path to meaningful employment. This captivating evening under a starlit sky will be held for the first time at the Petersen Automotive Museum – a dynamic venue showcasing automotive history, culture, and artistry.

At this event, we celebrated the spirit of Chrysalis clients and honored esteemed leaders in film, television, music, art, and business who are dedicated to making waves of transformative change throughout our community. Thank you for changing lives with us!
