Every year, the Little Company of Mary Foundation hosts the Crystal Heart Ball, an evening of dinner, dancing, and great company to celebrate Little Company of Mary Hospital. Guests will enjoy a cocktail reception and gourmet meal along with the music of the City Lights Orchestra. The event will be held at the Field Museum, and guests will have exclusive access to a Field Museum exhibit, which is “Gold”. Guests will also have the opportunity to purchase $100 Grand Raffle tickets for a chance to win the $15,000 first prize (and $5,000 for second prize, $2,500 for third prize, and $1,000 for fourth prize).
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 goes to Thomas Taff, founder of “Bucks for Burn Camp”. The Sister Nancy Boyle Award for Excellence will pay tribute to an individual or program that embodies the legacy and life of Sister Nancy Boyle, LCM, so that her spirit will live on and continue to inspire others. This year Salli Lizcano will receive the award for her tireless volunteer efforts on behalf of Little Company of Mary’s Auxiliary.
This year, funds raised at the 21st annual Crystal Heart Ball go toward the Campus Transformation Project. The event will take place on February 5, 2011, so save the date!
