Dr. Nord is an orthopedic surgeon with Central Illinois Orthopedic Surgery and his wife, Connie, is a dedicated community volunteer. Marty Mandula is a zone business manager for Toshiba America Medical Systems and his wife, Connie, is the owner and president of CM Promotions. “It is an honor to be able to raise money for the Foundation and give back to our community. The Crystal Ball is always a beautiful event, and we will work hard to carry on the tradition for this year,” says Connie Nord.

“Marty and I could not be more thrilled to co-chair this event with Dr. Larry and Connie Nord. OSF St Joseph's standards are very high, and because of that, I am excited to have the opportunity to raise money for a paramount asset to the Bloomington-Normal area,” adds Connie Mandula.    

The Crystal Ball is hosted by the OSF St. Joseph Foundation and is the medical center’s largest annual fund raising event for patient programs and services. The Crystal Ball is considered one of the premier black tie galas held in Bloomington-Normal each year, with an attendance of approximately 250 guests.
