The 26th Annual OSF St. Joseph Foundation Crystal Ball will be held Saturday, November 1, 2014, at the Bloomington Country Club. Proceeds from this year’s event will be used to equip the first Hybrid Operating Room in our area with state of the art medical imaging equipment. 

The Crystal Ball is the largest annual fundraising event for the OSF St. Joseph Foundation and is considered one of the premier black tie galas held in Bloomington-Normal. The theme for this year’s event is Boots and Diamonds: An Evening in Nashville. Co-chairing the event are Connie and Marty Mandula and Connie and Dr. Larry Nord. 

Guests at this year’s event will enjoy a photo booth, a gourmet dinner, a live auction, and exciting live entertainment direct from Nashville with singer and songwriter Eric Lee Beddingfield. Beddingfield made his Grand Ole Opry debut in September 2011 and has grown in popularity with the release of his single, “The Gospel According to Jones,” which featured the late George Jones. Beddingfield was named MusicRow Magazine’s “Independent Artist of the Year” in 2012. For more information about Eric Lee Beddingfield, please visit
