The Chairpersons for this year’s event are Jim and Marti Wendt Doherty. They are joined by the co-chairs, Dr. Irving and Shirley Fuld. The Chairs and the Crystal Heart Ball Committee have worked hard to provide their guests with a memorable evening. They will enjoy a cocktail reception and gourmet meal along with dancing to the music of Indigo. The guests will have access to the Field Museum permanent exhibition, “Restoring Earth” which showcases the conservation efforts of the Field Museum scientists and explores choices for a healthier future.

All of the early bird tickets will be entered into the Grand Raffle the evening of the Crystal Heart Ball. Winner need not be present.
Little Company of Mary will also recognize individuals or organizations for outstanding accomplishments and service. The Venerable Mary Potter Humanitarian Award will be given as a testament to compassion, commitment and the gift of empowerment. This year’s award is going to the “The Mulliganeers” who is dedicated to raising funds for children and families in need. The Sister Nancy Boyle Award for Excellence will pay tribute to a program that embodies the legacy and the life of Sister Nancy Boyle, LCM.
