Linda McIngvale, Club Westside’s owner, commissioned the Newspring butterfly for the beautiful grounds of the club. In the middle of a redesign of the Club including a putt-putt golf course and official monarch garden, Linda envisioned a giant monarch to attract the smaller, real ones. Known for its beautiful landscaping and exotic wildlife, in addition to the world-class fitness and tennis facility, the lush gardens of Club Westside are the perfect setting for Dani’s uniquely designed monarch butterfly.

Daniela Cruz, a 2018 Northbrook High School graduate and Newspring college scholarship recipient, designed and created the giant monarch butterfly. She is a 3 rd year student at Houston Community College, majoring in Elementary Education.
