On behalf of the Foundation Board of Directors, the 2018 Chair & Co-Chairpersons and the entire Crystal Heart Ball Committee Thank You for your participation in the 28th Annual Crystal Heart Ball at The Field Museum on February 3, 2018. 

The Masters of Ceremonies were Little Company of Mary’s very own baby alum, Patrick Elwood with WGN News, along with Nancy Loo, also with WGN News. More than 660 guests danced the night away to the musical stylings by Maggie Speaks – Talk of the Town Big Band while experiencing international cultures and observing artifacts from all over the world. This premiere gala, the largest on Chicago’s Southwest side, raised nearly $400,000. Final proceeds will benefit LCMH Interventional Radiology Services.

It is with sincere gratitude that we reflect on the success of this event made possible because of the committed members of our LCMH community.

Please mark your calendars for next year’s 29th Annual Crystal Heart Ball—Saturday, February 2, 2019!
